Flight 447 tail located

Brazilian search teams find major debris

Searchers have finally located major debris from Air France Flight 447. The tail section was found in the Atlantic Ocean, northeast of Brazil. Teams have also found  two dozen bodies. The search for the plane’s flight recorders continues—a French nuclear submarine and sensitive listening equipment from the U.S. are on their way to help. But with the rest of the plane possibly under kilometres of water, there is little hope of finding the black boxes.
