Brazil: Doomed Air France Jet's Data Recorders May Be Located

May 6, 2010 — On Monday (5/3), the French navy resumed its search for the flight data recorders from Air France Flight 447 that crashed in the Atlantic last June. And this new recovery effort is focusing on a specific 580 square mile area because of a breakthrough investigators made when examining audio recordings from last summer. The French Defense Ministry says that new software allowed investigators to scrub the recordings of background noise to detect a possible signal being emitted by one of the flight data recorders on July 1, 2009.
