PARIS - European planemaker Airbus was placed under investigation on Thursday for the 2009 crash of a flight between Rio de Janeiro and Paris that killed 228 people, Airbus Chief Executive Thomas Enders said.

Investigators are trying to establish why the Airbus 330 plane, operated by Air France, plunged into the Atlantic during a storm on the night of May 31, 2009, killing passengers from 32 nations, including 72 French citizens.

An investigating judge informed Enders and the company's lawyers that Airbus was being officially placed under investigation at a meeting in Paris's palace of justice.
