An Air France jet that was carrying 228 passengers has simply vanished.It disappeared while flying from Brazil to France & it may be somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.This is a baffling mystery that may remain unresolved. My condolences & prayers go out to all of those affected by this tragedy.
Here’s more from MSNBC:
“A missing Air France jet carrying 228 people from Rio de Janeiro to Paris ran into a tower of thunderstorms over the Atlantic Ocean, officials said Monday, fearing that all aboard were lost.
The area where the plane could have gone down was vast. Brazil’s military searched for it off its northeast coast, while the French military scoured the ocean near the Cape Verde Islands off the West African coast.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy told families of those aboard that “prospects of finding survivors were very small.” If all 228 were killed, it would be the deadliest commercial airline disaster since 2001.
Sarkozy, speaking at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport, said the reason for the disappearance remained unclear and that “no hypothesis” was excluded.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.Vodpod videos no longer available.
