Airlines replace speed monitors after Air France crash

June 10, 2009 06:10

Airlines moved quickly Tuesday to replace speed monitors like those suspected of feeding false information to the computers on Air France Flight 447 and possibly leading the plane to break up over the Atlantic Ocean. Seventeen more bodies were pulled from the sea Tuesday, bringing the number recovered to 41. Another 187 have yet to be found. The first remains were brought to land by helicopter and will be flown to this coastal city Wednesday for identification. Federal police began visiting families in Rio de Janeiro to collect genetic material - hair, blood, a cheek swab - to help identify the corpses.
