18-Dec-2009 11:49 AM

BEA, the French aviation accident investigation bureau, stated it is still unable to determine the cause of the crash of Air France flight AF 447, which occurred on 01-Jun-2009, killing all 228 on board (Reuters, 17-Dec-2009). BEA confirmed that inconsistent information provided by airspeed probes was one of the elements that led to the accident, although this alone cannot explain it.
