Air France incident – what is going on ? June 5, 2009Posted by Rambling Man in World Affairs.
‘Up to now, no material from the plane has been recovered,’ Brigadier Ramon Cardoso, director of Brazilian air traffic control, told reporters in the northeastern city of Recife late last night.
That contradicted a statement Brigadier Cardoso made earlier when he said a palette and two buoys plucked from the Atlantic by navy crews were the first pieces of the Air France crash.
In fact, Mr Cardoso admitted later, they were nothing more than sea ‘trash’ – probably from a ship, as was a big oil patch originally described as a fuel slick from the French jet.
So let me get this straight – several days later, they have no knowledge of where the plane is – either intact or in pieces – and not one single solitary piece of debris or personal item from anyone or anything on board … ?
Curiouser and curiouser !
