    Investigators find Air France black box
    All 228 people on board were killed when the aircraft crashed in the mid-Atlantic

    PARIS — Investigators have located and recovered the missing memory unit of the flight data recorder of a 2009 Air France flight — a remarkable deep-sea discovery they hope will explain why the aircraft went down in a remote area of the mid-Atlantic, killing all 228 people on board.

    France's air accident investigation agency BEA said a search by a submarine probing 3,900 meters (12,800 feet) below the ocean's surface located and recovered the unit Sunday morning. The unit is now aboard the Ile de Sein, a ship that's helping conduct the probe, the statement said.

    Now hopefully the veil of mystery can be encrypted and we get some insights into what really happened there on this day // on this plane. A modern aviation mystery needs some form of modern day explanation, we believe the black box can deliver just that and some peace of mind.
