Relatives of victims of the 2009 Rio-Paris air crash have provided evidence they say supports their claim that Airbus knew of problems with an onboard instrument five years earlier, it emerged on Sunday.
French investigators say faulty sensors and inadequate pilot training caused Air France's Rio-to-Paris 447 flight to crash into the Atlantic in 2009. Their final report caps a bitter row between the airline and Airbus.
A total of 127 bodies have been recovered since the start of the search for the Air France Airbus A330 plane that crashed in the Atlantic in June 2009, a Brazilian association of the victims' families said on Tuesday.
The Air France jet which crashed into the Atlantic en route from Rio in 2009 stalled and fell in three and a half minutes, French investigators report. The air accident investigations bureau (BEA) found the crew had struggled with contradictory speed readings just before the plane crashed.
