Airbus A330-200 of Air France, June 1, crashed over the Atlantic, splits in the air gradually, over several minutes. This version now is the investigation, said the representative of Airbus.

This indicates firstly, that the bodies of some passengers of flight discovered the emergency services were at a distance of about 100 kilometers from each other.

Secondly, the reanalysis of recent messages sent by air to the automatic mode, showed that the system breaks down alternately, and many were denied long before the plane fell into the ocean.

In particular, Pitot tubes used to simultaneously determine the velocity and flight altitude, did not work for several hours until the plane was in the air.

В частности, трубки Пито, использующиеся для одновременного определения скорости и высоты полета, не работали в течение нескольких часов, пока самолет находился в воздухе.

These data make it possible to reject the new version of the explosion aboard the aircraft. On the unreliability of assumptions about the attack have said many officials from different countries.

Earlier media reported that on board the wreck of the liner could be two of the terrorists. However, was tested, and this version has not been confirmed: Only two passengers were randomly namesake of people suspected of links with radical Islamists.

Aviation officials say the evidence uncovered so far points to at least a partial midair break up of the Airbus A330.

Speculation surrounding the flight has focused on the Airbus’s airspeed sensors which may have malfunctioned.

A company report has shown that Air France Airbus jets’ probes malfunctioned at least five times last year.

But the French agency probing the crash said that it had yet to find conclusive evidence that faulty airspeed monitors were the cause.
