French officials on Friday unveiled a report about the last moments of Air France Flight 447, releasing information generated from 'black box' flight data discovered in early May.
The Rio de Janeiro to Paris flight trajectory was revealed, showing that the plane carrying more than 228 people was falling at nearly 11,000 feet per minute after stalling at a maximum height of 38,000 feet. Several warnings about stalling sounded as the plane hit turbulence.
Additional information provided flight input data related to the pilots' movements.
The black box was discovered in what appeared to be good physical condition. It was found by a submarion scouring the ocean floor 3,900 meters (12,800 feet) below the surface.
All recordings stopped at 4 hours 14 minutes and 28 seconds into the flight.
A full report on the incident is not expected before 2012.
