Officials Find That The Ocean Debris Not Part of Flight 447
FERNANDO DE NORONHA, Brazil (June 5) -- France's transportation minister said Friday that French forces have found no signs of the Airbus A330 airplane that vanished over the Atlantic and urged "extreme prudence" about suspected debris taken from the ocean.
Dominique Bussereau said he regretted that an announcement by Brazilian teams that they had recovered plane debris from Air France flight 447 turned out to be false.
Officials said debris found in the Atlantic Ocean does not belong to Air France Flight 447. "French authorities have been saying for several days that we have to be extremely prudent," a French minister said Friday. "Our planes and naval ships have seen nothing."
