Data Recorders Detected Near Comoros

The BBC is reporting Yemenia crash jet signal detected

A signal has been detected from the flight data recorders of the Yemenia airliner that crashed in the Indian Ocean on 30 June, officials say.

Comoran and French investigators say the signal was picked up during an underwater search.

They gave no indication when the flight recorders might be recovered.

The Airbus 310, going to the Comoros Islands from Yemen, came down in bad weather with 153 on board. A 12-year-old girl was the only survivor.

From what the survivor has reportedly told her father, it sounds like the crew was too low as it approached for landing. They may have been hit by a down draft or had faulty readings. They weren’t trying to ditch in the ocean, and the weather was bad at the time.
