    Air France flight goes missing over Atlantic - Americas- msnbc.com

    SAO PAULO, Brazil - 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.




    "(I met with) a mother who lost her son, a fiancee who lost her future husband. I told them the truth," he said.

    Anyone who reads the news knows about this David. What is there to discuss? It's a tragedy. Every now and then a plane goes down, and nobody is ever going to change that.

    And you guys thought this was a non-story. An Airbus A-330 with a veteran crew does NOT crash in the middle of the Atlantic. This was a relatively new craft with a flawless service record. A modern jet like this just doesn't crash. It has mechanical problems, the pilots report the problems, it tries to make its way back and then if it can't, it crashes. This was VERY sudden. This has been my theory for days. Now THIS.

    3 days later, the same jet crashed into the ocean. Coincidence? I think not. This was a case of terrorism in the highest regards.

    Do you think for a second a modern jetliner with over 200 people traveling thousands of miles would be brought down by lightning?

    Impossible. Absolutely impossible.

    Um ... no it's far from impossible, it's a lot more common than you seem to think. Go ahead, take a 9-volt battery to your computer motherboard and connect it to two random points, same effect.
