Haunting is a good word for the first images from the sea floor where wreckage of the Air France jetliner that crashed nearly two years ago while on a flight from Brazil to Paris. The report from France today that bodies were also found “inside the fuselage” also raises some perfectly awful questions.
Up to now, it’s been assumed the airplane broke apart in flight, from a high altitude. Theoretically, it seems, there shouldn’t be an “inside the fuselage.” The New Zealand Herald says it now appears the plane hit the ocean “intact.”
Nobody — and for good reason — seemed to want to ask the obvious question at today’s news conference.
