News you can’t get elsewhere
Flight 447 pilot’s body recovered

While the world is abuzz about one woman’s death, Farrah Fawcett, there were more than 200 people who died 26 days ago, lest you forget. Not minimizing Fawcett’s loss; but what if your family member had been on flight 447 from Brazil to France? Seems the media have forgotten.


There are five days to recover the plane’s black box. Things are looking slim in that regard, but there are always miracles.


This from Associated Press: PARIS (AP) — Search crews in the mid-Atlantic have retrieved the bodies of the chief pilot of Flight 447 and a flight attendant, Air France said Thursday.


The two are among 50 bodies pulled out of the ocean in the international search for remains of the 228 victims and wreckage of the May 31 crash.


Air France, in a statement on its website (ironic this is an Associated Press story and AP stylebook says it is – Web site – so much for informed reporters using the stylebook), said the pilot and male flight attendant have been identified but did not release their names. A pilots' union named the flight captain as Frenchman Marc Dubois.
