Air France crash: Investigators blame human error, technical flaws
- what Under mysterious circumstances, a 2009 Air France flight disappeared while it was over the Atlantic Ocean. It took months to find the wreckage from the plane, which was headed from Rio de Janeiro. 228 died in the crash, and it remains the airline’s worst accident.
- why In a report on the crash, BEA investigators blamed human and technical error, claiming the pilots were unaware they ”were in a situation of near-total loss of control.” Families of the victims, however, were disappointed by the report, feeling it incomplete. source
EDIT: Corrected direction of the flight — which was headed FROM Rio De Janeiro to Paris.
