Search teams discover part of Air France 2009 crash flight recorder
May 3rd, 2011 by elisa

Search teams have discovered part of the flight recorder from the Air France plane which crashed off the coast of Brazil in June 2009. Unfortunately officials have reported that it was not the ‘black box’ section needed to reveal crucial data about the cause of the crash which killed all 228 people on board.

The aircraft had been going from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, but crashed just hours after it took off. Most of those on board were French, Brazilian or German.

The recorder section was found while salvage teams began working to retrieve bodies. The tail section of the Airbus 330 was found on the floor of the Atlantic ocean earlier this month.

According to BBC reports, France’s Bureau of Investigation and Analysis said in a statement: “During the first dive by the Remora 6000 which lasted more than 12 hours, the chassis of the flight data recorder was found, without the module protecting and containing the data.”

A second dive is now under way.
