June 5, 2009 - Contrarily to what has been officially announced two days ago, the wreckages found by the Brazilian Air Force do not belong to the lost Airbus and the search efforts have to restart from scratch, without any clue about the crash location.
The 12-mile long fuel slick spotted from the air by Brazilian pilots turned to be oil spilled from a ship. And the piece of white debris that were thought to belong to the missing plane appeared to be pieces of wood, probably fallen from a ship.
Although 150 persons, 11 airplanes from three countries and 2 ships are mobilized in Natal, Recife and Fernando de Noronha to participate in the search, without any material clues it is impossible to determine the limits of the search area, making the recovery of the black boxes highly improbable, while it is the only possibility to dissipate the mystery of what happened to the AF447 flight.
The only established facts are that the aircraft crossed a zone of severe turbulence over "cumulus nimbus" clouds, and that the data recorded by the Brazilian radars before the plane disappeared show some "inconsistency" about its speed and altitude.
The 24 automatic alerts sent during the last 4 minutes before the aircraft disappearance also indicate several major technical problems, including the primary and secondary computers failure, and «cabin vertical speed» alert that may indicate a cabin depressurization.
There is no doubt about the fact that the Airbus crashed, but still, there is no clue about the cause.Read »
