It might be passed the date in certain areas of the world. Today is the anniversary of AF 447's crash in the Atlantic Ocean.

I knew a couple people on this flight. I would like to pay tribute to the families of the victims for their losses, to the cabin crew for their undoubted courage during the last moments of flight, and to the pilots who with no doubt did all that was possible to save the lives of each and every person on this Airbus A330.

I know about the continous thread on the crash and the investigation, but it would be helpful to have a summed up version here to keep each other updated on the more important milestones accomplished in understanding this crash.

Regards

It's amazing how quickly a year has passed, and yet we are no nearer to finding out the cause. This crash disturbs me more than others simply because of a lack of information and thus a lack of FDR/CVR, without those boxes we will continue to guess for years. I REALLY hope they find them.


In Arsene we trust!!

Wow, a year already! I would have guessed much later in the summer but the calendar doesn't lie!

RIP to those that took that fateful flight. Hopefully one day we will know, conclusively, what brought down your flight. And then work to make sure nothing like this ever happens again.



None shall pass!!!!

Yes a year, 1st June 2009. It seems to stick well in my mind.

RIP to the 228 on board; lost but never forgotten.

I am not sure that the CVR/FDR will ever be recovered, and dont see how without those any theory can be much more than (educated and realistic) speculation.

We only have a few bits of the aircraft, especially the vertical stabalizer, that tantalize and frustrate us 'computer chair' air crash investigators. This took place in one of the most isolated air spaces in the world, one where even emergency radio communications are difficult if not near useless. Pitot tube problems seem to be the best guess as to what led to this crash and changes as to them on Airbus aircraft have been and continue to be in progress, but even then it may not be the real trigger cause of this crash. Weather at altitude may be part of the problem, but what about the weather at that point of flight in this aircraft should be considered in a future decision to not allow a flight to go through such an area.

May the victims rest in peace, more material, especially the flight recorders be found, to help us understand the cause of this horrible crash.

There should be a special day set aside in Sao Paulo and Paris to commemorate this day. Brazilian and Franco relations are good and much can be made of it!


The world is missing love, let's use our flights to spread it!

That means I got my premium membership around a year ago. I finally paid the $25 because I wanted to give some input in the numerous AF 447 threads.

May all of the victims continue to rest in peace, and my heart goes out to all of their relatives and friends.

Rio de Janeiro would probably be more appropriate.
