Disappeared Memory-And the 447 Recovery Continues

Wednesday, April 27, 2011
By George Hatcher

Ile de Sein came in on the 26th from Senegal to assist in performing recovery operations in the current phase of Air France flight 447 recovery. The Remora 6000 robot found the chassis of the CSMU but not the actual CSMU memory module, which (after the human remains) is the key prize wanted in this search, being the one thing that can shed light on what occurred on June 21 2009.

Where is the memory unit? Even if this is just a question of a badly designed insecure containment system, where is the crucial unit?

68 people aboard the Ile de Sein are working the scene, armed with a crane and the Remora 6000 submarine.
