Air France flight data recorder memory unit recovered


The flight data recorder from an Air France plane that crashed in 2009 off the coast of Brazil has been recovered, officials say.
France’s Bureau of Investigation (BEA) said the memory unit of the device was “in good physical condition”.

French deep-sea robots have resumed searching for the airliner’s cockpit voice recorder.
The Air France Airbus A330 plane went down in the Atlantic on 1 June 2009, killing all 228 people on board.

Vital data still missing

Last week the French search team found the outer casing of the flight data
recorder, but not its memory unit. The crucial unit was located on Sunday and
delivered to a search vessel.

The wreckage was discovered last month after a long search of 10,000 sq km
(3,860 sq miles) of sea floor.

It was found only on a fourth attempt, using robots capable of operating
4,000m (13,120ft) below the ocean’s surface.

The Paris-bound Air France jet went down after running into an intense
high-altitude thunderstorm, four hours following take-off from Rio de Janeiro.

    Pilots lack of familiarity and training along with system malfunction contributed to this terrible accident.

    This Airbus A330-203 did not have multiple independent systems for detecting airspeed such as a GPS based system that would at least cross check the readings being given by the pitot tubes and then provide a cockpit warning that the airspeed could be wrong, or another safety mechanism whereby the pitot tubes are heated (as long as this would not impact the reading) so that ice could not occlude them
