Air France flight AF 447 carrying 228 people disappeared early Monday four hours into its 11-hour flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris after the Airbus A330 encountered severe turbulence over the Atlantic and reported technical failures. The search continued through the night for the missing plane that disappeared over the Atlantic, but little hope of the 228 people on board would be found alive. Recently the search aircraft on Tuesday found a seat and other debris from a plane in a remote stretch of the Atlantic where the flight carrying 228 people disappeared.The "small remains" were discovered around 1,100 kilometres (680 miles) off northeastern Brazil, some 650 kilometers northeast of Brazil's Atlantic island of Fernando do Noronha.The items included a seat from a plane, bits of white material, an orange buoy, a barrel and some oil and kerosene slicks, grouped in two floating patches 60 kilometers apart, according to an air force statement. But they are not sure that the debris was from Air France flight AF 447 and there were no signs of survivors.The officials needed a piece that might have a serial number, some sort of identification to be sure that it came from the missing airliner. However the items were found near where the Air France plane sent its final message: an automatic data signal telling of multiple electric and pressurization failures.A Brazilian air force statement said the debris was discovered at 0300 GMT Tuesday by an Embraer R-99 AWAC plane fitted with onboard radar that detected metallic and non-metallic items floating in the ocean. So still the mystery of the missing flight continuing and may god give strength and courage to the families to bear this sadful disaster.

Was it a fault or natural calamity? Bermuda triangle all again? And what do you mean "Missing"? Is our technology so weak not to find out the plane location even after the crash? comment on this...

  1. We can't blame Technology because its just a derivative of nature. There is a Power beyond what we think- Nature.
