    I would tend to rule out flame out since whatever happened "prevented" them from transmitting. I would think that their protocal would have been for them to report what was happening Tends to lead one to conclude something severe and swift occured.

    Well I assume they're going after the flight data recorder, so when they find it hopefully we'll know more.

    YUP, !! possible, but I thought I heard at one point that the possible "crash" field was in pretty deep water. I have forgotten my ocean geography is the Atlantic trench in that area ?

    Well we have subs for that, but I think it will be hard to find the box, because they would first have to understand the pattern of dispersion to figure out where it might be.

    "When they find it"?
    They're not going to find it.
    Lost jet data 'may not be found'

    French aviation officials have said they may never find the
    flight data recorders of an Air France jet that went missing
    over the Atlantic.

    The officials promised a thorough investigation but said
    the circumstances were very difficult.

    Flight AF 447 was heading from Rio to Paris with 228
    people on board on Monday when it was lost over the
    ocean.

    Debris has been spotted 650km (400 miles) off Brazil's
    coast and navy vessels are converging on the area.

    There should be a beacon that I think lasts for 30 days (?) or so. Not sure anymore what the range would be.

    PS The Brazilian AF just reported a 24 piece of floating debre ( is that spelled right?) ok floating stuff !!

    is it 'de brie' as in the French cheeze ? ok I am being bad !!
