The pilot of Air France plane accident in Brazil was not in the cabin

The pilot of Air France plane that crashed into the sea in 2009 off the Brazilian coast was not in the cabin at the time of the accident, which reportedly had access to the edition of the German weekly "Der Spiegel". The magazine quoted research reports launched, under which the recordings available on how the pilot is heard Marc Dubois, 58, rushes into the cockpit.

"We still gave instructions to the two co-pilots to save the plane," cites "Der Spiegel" an expert close to the investigation. The Air France Flight 447 crashed into the Atlantic in the morning of May 31, 2009, four hours after taking off from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. The 228 passengers and crew died.

In April, found the wreckage about 1,000 kilometers off the northeast coast of Brazil. It was thought that the crew of the Airbus A330 entered directly into a temporary area. The black box recordings cited by "Der Spiegel" show, however, the pilots tried to choose the best possible way to cross the front of the storm.

It is hoped that the recent uncertainty over the tragedy are clear at the end of June. Then you can count on the results of the investigation into the black box, according to Secretary of State Trafficking in France, Thierry Mariani. Early indications suggest that there were no technical problems on the plane.
