Fox News is reporting that two bodies of passengers on-board the doomed Air France flight AF-447 from Rio to Paris have been recovered.
The first bodies of passengers of the doomed Air France flight that plummeted into the sea have been found, Brazil’s air force said Saturday.
The Brazilian military said search crews scanning the Atlantic Ocean located two male bodies of passengers aboard Flight 447 — which crashed midway through a trip from Rio de Janeiro to Paris before dawn Monday morning.
Air force spokesman Col. Jorge Amaral said searchers also recovered a leather briefcase with an Air France ticket for the flight inside of it.
“It was confirmed with Air France that the ticket number corresponds to a passenger on the flight,” he told The Associated Press.
The bodies may help put a more accurate location to the crash location of the Airbus A330-203 F-GZCP.
