The third search for the wreckage of AF447 that crashed in the Atlantic in 2009 has been found.
There is some hope of retrieving the tail section which is somewhat intact and on a flat region. That is where the two flight recorders were attached and if data can be recovered there is hope that the cause of the crash could be discovered. There is hope this finding can bring some closure to friends and relatives of the dead and save lives in the future.
