Air France 447 autopsies appear to verify in flight breakup theory

Posted on 17. Jun, 2009 by in Featured

Initial autopsy reports being leaked to the press appear to verify the A 330 broke up in mid flight at high speed. Some readers may find the details unpleasant so I will put them on page two.

The bodies recovered so far point to a high speed, in-flight break up of Air France 447. Below are the findings leaked out thus far:

-The bodies were intact with flail injuries.
-The bodies were unclothed.
-There were no burns present.
-There was no water in the lungs.
-There were two groups of bodies found 50 miles apart.

Tactical aviators are familiar with flail injuries. They are associated with ejecting (from a doomed aircraft) at high speed into the airstream. The high-speed air fractures extremities and tears away clothing. Had the aircraft burned or exploded, there would have been burn marks and smoke in the lungs; there were neither. Had the aircraft ditched and sank, water would have been present in the lungs; thus far, there is none. Most telling is that the two groups were 50 miles apart, and the bodies were intact. Had it impacted at a high rate of speed, neither would be the case.

A very sad tragedy; now the investigators must find out why.

    Thought you’d find these two articles of interest.

    Yes they are interesting. I’m doing some research on this and will have an article in the AM. I still think there is another aspect, another data point to the AF 447 incident. QF-74’s hard overs still IMO are a tell tale sign.
