    I have no, zero, connection to flight447, but for some reason I can not help but check everywhere for any type of update on the recovery. My heart has truly gone out to all those who had family, friends, business partners, or simply acquaintances on flight447. We may never know what happened, which bothers me personally, but I am keeping those affected in my prayers and in my thoughts.

  • Wildflower

    So this may have already been discussed, but I’m a bit bothered by the “facts”, (which are few) that I am reading. Has anyone else thought of the strange double “talk” of what may have happened to flight 447? In some of the reports the public hears that the plane “broke up in mid air” and then we hear the same because of the debris that had been found in the early weeks and then the bodies that have been autopsied so far have supposedly indicated the same, yet on the other hand the public is hearing that the debris that has been found now indicates that the plane plunged into the ocean. What about the discrepancies in the autopsies, that some of the examiners didn’t agree or that there was some type of disagreement over the findings. Is it possible, that flight447 do to high speeds (from the tubes or some other malfunctions) and storms, which I’m sure were quite bad, lost the stabilizer, which rendered the plane almost useless, and tore some or a majority of the plane apart in the air and then the rest of the plane, the part that was not torn apart in the air plunged into the ocean? Is it just me or am I the only person thinking this could have happened?

    Joseph “Jojo” Owondo was a great guy. Although I hadn’t seen him in a few year, I always remembered what he used to tell me about my love of computers. He would always tell my mother that I was good with computers and that I would get a good job one day working with them.

    He would also ask me to build him a website, and right after I created this site, I found that he was on the sad.

    Everyone misses him. What a wonderful guy.

    To the family members of AF 447 passengers, I feel your loss and feel so sad. Never easy losing your loved ones. I have lost my loved ones and pray that your days will be comforted, you have more strength with each day.

    If you could video by Juliana de Aquino really touched me and reading about the passengers list, really saddens me.

    Tribute to the ones up in the sky, among the stars. Rest in peace

    Quote –
    Farewell, my friend and confidante!
    As you go, so must I
    Return upon the well-worn path
    Each soul must travel by.
    Wend where you will, my wanderer,
    Even as you stay
    Long-treasured in my lonely heart,
    Loved well, though far away.

    With all the recent news that we hear especially the new updates on this investigation, a lot of the new surfacing evidence is subject to lots of debates. Regardless of what the outcome of the investigation is. Let as all take a moment to remember the victims and never forget them.

    Yesterday we burried my cousin, Hussein, whose body was among the last few to be found near the Brazilian coast.
    It’s a shock and disaster for all those who lost someone they knew onboard AF447.

    May God be with all of you.

    Please please include the name of the young German fashion designer from Stuttgart who always came to Rio de Janeiro on his holidays and always stayed at the same place (Ananab guesthouse) in Rua Alice, Laranjeiras, a friendly and magic Rio district from which you can see the statue of Christ the Redeemer, wherever you happen to be strolling in Laranjeiras (incidentally, ‘laranjeiras’ means orange trees in Portuguese and the streets of this particular district are lined with them).

    The young German fashion designer’s name was MATTHIAS PETER. He was a sensitive, creative and caring human being who was so in love with Rio de Janeiro that he bought an apartment of his own to enable him to live half the year in Rio and half the year in his native Stuttgart.

    Matthias shared a meal with the other guests at Ananab Guesthouse and with the hosts, Roberto and Dirk, on that fateful Sunday 31 May and then said ’so long’ to all his friends in Rio, old and new. He told them he couldn’t wait to be back in Rio in December for the New Year’s Day festivities in Rio.

    Matthias was really looking forward to spending the New Year’s Eve in Rio in six months’ time. Well, he would… because New Year’s Eve in Rio de Janeiro is a truly unforgettable and COMMUNAL experience.

    We all dress in white, walk to the beach and throw flower offerings to the African goddess of the ocean, Yemanja. It’s a beautiful sight – thousands of people – rich and poor – dressed in white, gently placing flowers in the ocean whilst looking at a sky lit with magnificent fireworks.

    New Year’s Eve in Rio is a truly EGALITARIAN experience, as I mentioned above: it must be the only evening in the entire year when it is 100% safe to stroll along Copacabana beach past midnight because everyone, rich and poor, is too busy communing and celebrating to contemplate mugging your own kind.

    So,Matthias Peter, RIP, I will throw some ‘lirios’ to Iemanja on your behalf, come 31 December. You will always be remembered at the Ananab Guesthouse, by the street vendors you used to chat with
    everywhere you went in Laranjeiras and by everyone fortunate enough to have come into contact with you in your yearly sojourns in Rio de Janeiro.

    May the Maker keep you in a very special place next to him.
    Dagmar Almeida
    (like you, dear Matthias, I live half the time in Rio and half the time in Europe)

    Reading the names brings it all very close to the heart. News is numbers but this is reality.
    I returned from Rio with Air France 2 weeks before this tradegy, after our honeymoon around Brazil. We were delayed for 50 hours with AF after the plance had to abort on take off due to a front wheel suspension failure. Although terrifing, it could have been so very different on that day and thus what took place 2 weeks later has affected me deeply. My thoughts are with all those people who lost their lives in such wasteful circumstances and the families who search for answers everyday.

    Any flickr-photo-album/audio/video of them ?

    Where is the promised flight manifest? Today is 16th September 2009. A lot of people are waiting for it to appear here.

  • snmy

    A specific movie, or TV documentary should be made in memory of all the people sacrificed in this crash.

    Also I remember that the Canadian Bombardier Company who is responsible for the recent U.S. Buffalo Crash & previous Chinese BAOTOU Crash has not aired the REAL CAUSE of the mechanic failure of the latter one till now. Are there something to hide from the people?

    Erich Heine – Father of 3 gorgeous little girls, husband to a wonderful woman Alet and my best friend & hero in life and my brother. It is more than 3 months already and I miss you more and more each day Boet. Why did you have to be taken so soon, I keep asking myself. Instead of the pain fading, it’s just gets more intense as time passes, knowing that you and I will NEVER share another beer, laugh at another joke together and have the pleasure of each others company ever again.
    You were my driving force and guiding light and now you gone – I really miss you man. I really do, more than words can ever describe…

    I knew Christophe Paus. He was a neuro surgeon in Lausanne, Switzerland. He was a great man. Although he was so young but he was one of the chief surgeons of the clinic. Brilliant.
    He saved the life of my wife before his death… I am indebted to his kind helps.
    May God have mercy upon his soul.

    Have just found out via facebook that someone I knew years ago ,Stefan Bagus from Germnay, was on flight 447 – very sad day..

  • Nina

    Just a day ago I found out via facebook and google that a man I met almost 10 years ago, flightattendant Sébastien Vedovati was lost with flight 447. It breaks my heart because I was not prepared to find such tragic news when searching for a sweet and kind gentleman like him. I imagined him to be happily married and have beautiful kids and I would be so happy for him. From what I have found he had married and his wife was also lost in the same tragedy and it really breaks my heart to know that I will never be able to se him or speak to him again. When I first heard of flight 447 and that it involved an Air France plane my thoughts went straight to him but I immediately pushed the bad feeling away thinking it wouldn’t happen to him ,someone who I knew. Now I sit here in front of my computer almost a year after the crash in tears and trying to wrap my head around the all this information and deal with the emotional turmoil. It just breaks my heart to read about those who passed and all their family and loved ones left behind.

    They are angels now, rest in peace, and when our time comes we will meet again in a better place.

    Hi. I’ve been dwelling on Flight 447 for about 3 weeks now. I saw the news in 2009 and followed it closely but for some reason, these last 3 weeks has seen me watching youtube videos about the fatal flight and I really can’t come to terms with what happened at this moment in time.
