First, I hope that everyone is doing OK. I know that it has been a while since information was posted. But believe me, it wasn’t because Flight 447 was forgotten. There are many things that are going on in my life at the moment and keeping this site updated was unfortunately not priority number 1.

Parts of Air France FLight 447 have been found in the Atlantic Ocean. The parts were found by investigators taking part in the fourth search of the plane’s wreckage and black boxes. The fourth attempt to locate the black boxes and plane began last month.

The BEA said on Sunday night that parts of Flight 447 were discovered crew of the Alucia, one of the search vessels that is taking part in the recovery effort. “These elements were identified by BEA investigators as belonging to the wreckage of the A330-220 plane, flight AF447″ said the BEA.

Certain news site say French investigators did not identify the parts that were discovered. But one site, the Sidney Morning Herald, quoted BEA director Jean-Paul Troadec saying that the wreckage consisted of “engines and certain elements of the wing”.

A new search for the wreckage and black boxes of flight 447 was launched on March 25.
