Air France wreckage found :: All feared dead

The Brazilian military planes found the wreckage on Tuesday from an Air France jet that crashed in the Atlantic Ocean with 228 people aboard. This is considered as the airline's worst disaster in its 75-year history. Meanwhile Brazilian Defense Minister said there was "no doubt" that a 3-mile strip of detritus in the high seas was from the Airbus A330 that went missing in stormy weather early on Monday. Experts were certain that all aboard died.

Overwrought relatives who had been praying for a miracle said they had given up and lost hope.Airplane seats, an orange buoy, wiring, pieces of metal and fuel stains were spotted in the water by Brazilian air force pilots about 745 miles northeast of the coastal city of Recife. So far no corpses have been spotted, and pulling out bits of wreckage may not start until Wednesday when navy ships with divers arrive.
