REMUS Bots Discover Flight 447 Bodies


Air France Flight 447 crashed into the Atlantic about 2 years ago and recently aquatic robots found some bodies from that crash. The flight occurred May 31, 2009 and so far 177 are still missing. This is the fourth time that the team of REMUS 6000 robots, which can go down 6,000 feet and stay underwater for 20 hours at a time, has gone down to inspect the plane remains. Officials say that the bodies will be brought to the surface within a month.
