"On Apr 3rd 2011 investigators of the BEA said, that in the last 24 hours debris has been recovered from the Atlantic Ocean floor which has been identified to belong to the crashed Airbus A330-200 registration F-GZCP. The debris was "relatively concentrated", investigators now believe they have located the actual main wreckage site. There is still no guarantee though that the flight data recorders will be found. More information will be released in due time."
