#1 Other reports indicated that none of the recovered bodies were wearing life jackets. Appears something catastrophic happened very quickly and without warning at altitude. This entire event is beginning to look very suspect.

#2 They located the beacon. Not necessarily still attached to the box.

#3 A colleague just sent the following along with two very, very disturbing photos which I have not attached. Totally unconfirmed. I have no way of checking the validity:

AIR FRANCE CRASH PHOTOS....2 photos before Death....

Feel so sad for all the passengers including the extraordinary photographer, who kept his cool even in his last moments of life and took this photo.

Hats off to him!!! The world saw the disappearance of an A330 Air Frane during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris.
Two shots taken inside the plane before it crashed. Unbelievable!

Photos taken inside the aircraft.....

The two photos attached were apparently taken by one of the passengers before the aircraft crashed. The photos were retrieved from the camera's memory stick. You will never get to see photos like this. In the first photo, there is a gaping hole in the fuselage through which you can see the tailplane and vertical fin of the aircraft.

In the second photo, one of the passengers is being sucked out of the gaping hole.

These photos were found in a digital Casio Z750, amidst the remains.

Although the camera was destroyed, the Memory Stick was recovered. Investigating the serial number of the camera, the owner was identified as Paulo G. Muller, an actor of a theatre for children known in the outskirts of Porto Alegre.. It can be imagined that he was standing during the turbulence,

he managed to take these photos, just seconds after the tail loss the aircraft plunged.
The structural stress probably ripped the engines away, diminishing the falling speed,
protecting the electronic equipment but not unfortunately the victims.

Paulo Muller leaves behind two daughters, Bruna and Beatriz.

#4 MODS: My apologies. Appears the above is a <strong>HOAX. Please delete. Found it all on line with a disclaimer. Some very sick minds here, again, my apologies.

#5 Besoeker. I checked out the photos in question. Season 1 of "Lost". It's all sad enough, who needs people doing this crud.
