Air France pilots are pressing crash investigators for past performance problems of its aircrafts’ speed sensors (pitot tubes). The tube’s failure purportedly was key in last month’s deadly crash of Flight 447 which claimed the lives of all 228 who were aboard. As of now, no information has been revealed.
Union officials are stating that modifications to existing aircraft could’ve been made had this information been available. Extensive searches for flight data and cockpit voice recorders have thus far proven fruitless. We originally reported on this story on June 9th in the article “Air France: Unsensored!”
