No black box signals from Flight 447

SHOOT: Amazing that with all the high tech in the world, satellites and what not, we can still lose a large airbus with 228 people inside. If it takes this long to find an airbus in nothing but water, Osama bin laden stands a real chance out there. 178 are still missing, probably eaten.

PARIS – French military ships searching for the black boxes of Flight 447 have detected sounds in the Atlantic depths but they are not from the Air France plane's flight recorders, a French official said Tuesday.

French military ships searching in the area where the plane crashed have "heard sounds" but "the black boxes have not been detected," said an aide to France's minister in charge of transport, Jean-Louis-Borloo. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to be publicly named.

French military spokesman Christophe Prazuck said he could not confirm or deny the Le Monde report. French air accident investigators and officials with the French marine institute that operates the mini-sub, Ifremer, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Ten of 50 bodies recovered from the Air France flight that plunged into the Atlantic three weeks ago have been identified as Brazilians, medical examiners said.
