Terrible news this
Terrible news this

Yeah, terrible and sad.
Anticipating massive activity in Airbus's finances if the selling hasn't started already. The first A330 to go down in cruise flight = bad news for shareholders. People were already rattled over what happened over Learmonth a while back, this won't help matters.
No hope for survivors;
Air France plane carrying 228 people disappears in storm over the Atlantic
EDIT: from what I've been hearing through various sources, lightning seems to be a bit of a red herring. A 747 and MD-10 went through the same area this A330 went through before and after, respectively, it disappeared and reported nothing unusual.
The more I hear, the more I'm worried it's a fault with the A330. No comms? Yikes.

Also hitting the water at that height, is like going into a brick wall at enormous speed.
Bad news for relatives to say the least.
Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
Yeah, I read that planes are frequently struck by lightning and that nothing happens

Generally when a plane ditches it is as someone said flying into a wall. Generally the plane breaks up. Watch Air Crash Investigation for more details.
RIP to the victims and my thoughts are with their families.
Doesn't exactly make me any more confident about my flight on friday...
Forever 63* at the SCG
I don't understand how it takes so long to find the plane? It's been 24 hours already.
Rest In Peace Craigos
Its at the bottom of the ocean innit?
Was half listening to the late news, thought they mentioned something about the wreckage being found?
Yeah, wreckage has been spotted but as yet no survivors and according to the report they still have to pick up some wreckage to confirm that it is actually that Air France aircraft.
Such a tragedy, hope some good comes of this. Also just found out that one of the passengers on the aircraft live no more than 25 miles away from my hometown .
