I was thinking of the Bermuda Triangle but it's a bit too far off, but those aliens can fly those UFO's so you never know Since they haven't found it I'll hold out the faintest of hopes they may just be on an island until they do find some bodies.

But I don't know what's wrong with saying they crash on takeoff or landing, that's always what jets do, when they do crash. I've never heard of one going down over an ocean before.

Air New Zealand Flight 901 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
South African Airways Flight 295 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
KLM Flight 607-E - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
China Airlines Flight 611 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
TWA Flight 800 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

that's just a few that aren't takeoff and landing. so always is the wrong term.

Correct. And for the formality, the 9/11 planes could be added on that list too. It wasn't an accident, but it was still a crash.

Though I guess you could call that a landing. Just not the appropriate way.

Well I had never heard of one going down into the ocean. Of course the 9-11 planes are a category all by themselves because they were deliberately crashed into the buildings.

i read this in the new york post a couple of days ago:

Quote:
Perhaps no one will ever know how passengers reacted in those fatal 14 minutes -- whether they screamed, grabbed for the oxygen masks or sat in silent prayer.

But once the cabin pressure failed, they would have been unconscious in half a minute, Voss and other experts said.

"It would have been as quick as the moment when one falls asleep," Dr. Philippe Juvin, head of emergencies at Beaujon Hospital west of Paris, told the French newspaper Le Monde.
if they did pass out, i wonder if they would wake up as they are falling. can't even imagine it.

like everyone else, the first thing i thought of was Lost. but what about Final Destination? i'm sure there will be stories to pop up on people who should have been on the flight who (for whatever reason) were not on the plane.

I just heard that on the news. At least the families will have clarity now if it's the bodies of two passengers/crew members.

It is quite disappointing that there is so much rubbish and debris floating in the ocean that they mistook it for this plane's wreckage.

The plane has been found. They found the tailpiece, so it's confirmed it's the Air France jet.
The FINANCIAL - Tail fin of Air France jet found, total of 24 bodies recovered

That's so sad
At least they are finding pieces of the plane and some bodies to give the families some closure.

As for this morning, I heard on the radio there's 86 bodies recovered now. The first bunch are being transported to mainland for identification soon.

They wil probably be able to recover the black boxes too. I read in the paper yesterday morning that they were in the tail piece, and probably at a depth of 6 km. There's an American submarine able to get to depths of 6.1 km and they would get the help of that to recover the boxes.

There is something unnerving to me about abyssal depths.
