Update: Air France Flight 447 Crash

It has been almost ten hours since France announced Flight 447 had disappeared off their radar, and now we have more information about the passengers on the flight. An Air France official has announced there were 58 Brazilians, 61 French, 26 Germans, 9 Chinese, 5 Britons, and 2 Americans, among others, on board. You can find the complete list here.

The wreckage has not been found, but President Sarkozy of France says the change of finding any survivors is very small. The plane, en route to Paris from Rio de Janeiro, went down in the Atlantic Ocean this morning after apparently being struck by lightning. What is known as the plane hit stormy weather and called in a distress call, saying their electrical circuit had failed. More details as we get them.
