Statement Will Appear On Agency's Website
Media reports from Europe indicate that the French accident
investigative agency BEA plans to release preliminary information
gleaned from the cockpit voice and flight data recorders of AF
Flight 447 on Friday. The agency reportedly plans to post a
statement on its website.
The French news service AFP reports that the release is intended
to counter "the partial and more or less contradictory information
published by the media," according to a BEA e-mail sent to
journalists. On its website, BEA says it has "decided to publish a
note with information on the first facts established, based on
analysis of the data from the flight recorders. This note will be
put on line on Friday 27 May at the beginning of the afternoon and
will be available in English, French, German and Portuguese. There
will be no press briefing."
The recorders are expected to yield answers as to why the Air
France A330 went down in the Atlantic Ocean nearly two years ago.
French junior transport minister Therry Mariana said last week that
the agency expects to know the probable cause of the accident by
the end of June.
