Air France “black box” signals located - report

Signals from the flight data recorders of an Air France airliner that crashed into the Atlantic killing all 228 people on board have been located, Le Monde newspaper said on its website on Tuesday.

But a spokeswoman from the BEA, the French air accident authority, noted that many sounds were picked up on the sea bed and investigators were not sure that what they had detected was from the flight recorders.

“It’s not the first time sounds have been heard and we will be verifying this with all the equipment we have at our disposal,” she said. “The search is continuing and we haven’t found the recorders.”An Air France spokeswoman also said she could not confirm the newspaper report.
