AFR447: aircraft impacted ocean

"The BEA has concluded their press conference introducing the results of their investigation and their preliminary report so far.

The key sentences have been:

- No technical problems with the airplane before the takeoff.
- The airplane did NOT break up in flight.
- The 24 ACARS messages refer to the loss of airspeed (pitot tubes)
- The airplane also lost information about the direction the airplane was going to.
- The airplane went down vertically plunging into the ocean.
- Weather was a classic ITZ scenario."

Many thanks to the Aviation Herald for being, in General Nathan Forrest's famous words during the American Civil War, "Firstest with the mostest...."
