This story isn’t getting as much press as I’d have expected - but using some Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute equipment, investigators found the major debris from the crash of that Rio->Paris flight from June 2009. They reported finding bodies as well (presumably the poor souls were still strapped in their seats). Morbid curiosity has me wondering how anything but bones and clothing could be left after all that time. Is the floor of the Atlantic an anaerobic environment? Could there actually be enough DNA to ID these people?
Of course they hope to find the black box recorders intact.
This must be a double-edged sword for their relatives. Many must have moved on after 2 years, only to have an actual body turn up. Life sure sucks sometimes.
