Guyana finds possible debris from Air France crash
Georgetown: A fisherman in Guyana
apparently has found a large piece of a plane that authorities
suspect might belong to the Air France jet that crashed in the
Atlantic Ocean, an aviation official said on Saturday.
The 30-foot-long piece of what appears to be aircraft
fuselage washed up on a beach in the South American country
this week, said Paula McAdam, deputy director of Guyana`s
Civil Aviation Authority.
The Brazilian Embassy said it would send experts to
examine the debris, she said.
An Air France flight that departed neighboring Brazil on
June 1 crashed into the ocean more than 900 miles (1,450
kilometers) off that country`s northeastern coast. All 228
people aboard died.
French officials expect to begin a new underwater search
next week to look for more wreckage.
Guyana fisherman Denis Baksh told local media that he
took the aircraft part home on Wednesday after spotting it
while heading out to sea.
Discarded portions of space rockets launched from a
European facility in nearby French Guiana often wash up on
local beaches weeks after a launch.
Arianespace last launched a rocket on July 1.
