Air France Flight 447 accident videos: before and after the black boxes were found

This accident took place on June 1, 2009. At first, the investigation could not continue because the black boxes were missing in the deep ocean. After almost two years, the black boxes were finally recovered so the full picture was now known.

I came across the following two videos on The first one was produced when the black boxes were still missing. However, the second one was produced after the black boxes were found.

More details of this accident can be found in this Wiki document: Wiki: Air France Flight 447.

May those who lost their lives in this accident rest in peace!

In the video, the experts can only guess the theory of the accident. See the theory in this video at 54:32.

[After the black boxes were found]

Around May 2011, all the black boxes were found and analyzed.

With the recorded cockpit voices and plane flight data, the experts now understand what really happened in this accident. This video starting at 12:06 describes the whole story.

The theory mentioned by the experts in previous video is really telling what really happened in this accident.
