Air France A380 engine debris found in Greenland #AF66


Debris from an Air France A380 jet engine that failed on a transatlantic flight last week has been located in a remote part of Greenland.

Recorded data from the Paris CDG-Los Angeles flight pinpointed the position where the damage occurred.

A Danish helicopter spotted the engine parts on an icy desert area 150km (95 miles) south-east of Paamiut town.

Part of the Airbus A380’s engine fell off on Saturday, forcing the flight to divert to Labrador in Canada.

The plane was carrying 496 passengers and 24 crew at the time. No-one was injured in the incident.

French air investigators said they were working with their Danish counterparts to organise the recovery of the parts.
