Air France Plane’s Recorders May Be on Ocean Floor, Jobim Says
“I’m not optimistic,” Paul-Louis Arslanian , director of
the body conducting the inquiry, told journalists at a press
conference in Paris today. “It’s not only deep but mountainous
in that part of ocean. Recorders can be a great help but aren’t
essential to an investigation.”
The wreckage may be as deep as 3,000 meters (9,800 feet),
French Energy Minister Jean-Louis Borloo said today.
