Airliner Update

The BBC reports that Plane searchers spot ocean debris.

The BBC has a map in the article that overlays the satellite image of the weather over the Atlantic at the time of the flight which indicates that the crew had altered the flight path to avoid the worst of the of the storm activity.

Debris possibly belonging to the aircraft was spotted at two locations approximately 60 km apart which would indicate that the aircraft broke-up in flight, rather than ditching, which significantly reduces the possibility of survivors.

Surface vessels won’t reach the area until Wednesday, but the French are sending a research vessel with two mini-subs to attempt to locate the flight recorders in order to find out what happened.
