Why Air France flight 447 crashed in the Atlantic between Brazil and West Africa with 228 people on board is still a mystery, but the French bureau leading the investigation said that the plane hit the ocean intact.
New developments in the Air France tragedy: an investigation revealed that the Airbus did not break up in mid-air but was damaged on impact with the Atlantic. It is the first outline of the month-long probe to be unveiled, but the investigating bureau has yet to find out exactly what caused the accident.
To better understand the situation, Laura Baines is joined on this edition of FOCUS magazine by Cédric Maniez of the French Pilots Union.
