The French and Brazilian navy continue to recover the victims from the Air France plane which crashed in the Atlantic last week.
Officials say the remains of 41 bodies have now been found from Flight 447. They have temporarily been moved to the Island of Fernando de Noronha, which is being used as a base for operations, until they are taken to the Brazilian mainland. ‘‘If any of the bodies end up being identified, the relatives of that person will be contacted. They will chose whether or not they want to identify the body visually,’‘ said a spokesperson. Yesterday, search teams recovered the tail of the downed jet. It came as one Air France union urged its pilots to stop flying some Airbus aircraft until old speed sensors were replaced. They have become the focus of the crash investigation and Air France has now confirmed all its sensors on long-haul Airbus jets will be replaced.
