This story only seems to get stranger each day. From Day 1 of this horrific tragedy, I saw Flight 447 conspiracy theories being posted on websites all over the world. Here is a list of a few Flight AF 447 conspiracy theories I have seen (plus a few crazy one that I just made up to add to the craziness of the others):

  • UFO/Extraterrestrial spacecraft crashes into Flight AF 447
  • Aliens kidnap Air France Flight 447 passengers
  • Missile hits Flight 447 at cruising altitude
  • Bomb explodes on Flight AF 447 at 35,000 feet
  • Asteroids hit Flight 447 (but not just any asteroids – asteroids from the coming 2012 apocalypse predicted by the Mayans)
  • Flight 447 hijacked, re-routed, and landed in secrecy
  • AF 447 collides with government spy satellite
  • Flight 447 shot down with secret super laser weapon
  • Flight AF 447 disappears in marketing stunt ahead of television premiere the french version of LOST
  • Flight 447 crashed because Desmond didn’t enter the numbers (yet another LOST reference)
  • Humans from the future came back in time and have taken all the Flight 447 passengers back to the future for some unknown purpose
  • Air France Flight 447 flew into a opening in space-time and flew into another dimension
  • May 31, 2009 is 05-31-2009 which is 3+1+5=9  and 2+9=11. Thus, you get 9/11.
  • Flight AF 447 brought down to take out heir to Brazilian throne; a royal family connection
  • AF 447 brought down to increase military spending with European contractors

How crazy do those conspiracy theories sound? Yeah, some people are nuts. But today the story became even more mysterious as the Brazilian Air Force has retracted previous statements that the debris found in the Atlantic Ocean was from Flight AF 447. Now, the Brazilian Air Force is saying that much of the debris found in the Atlantic Ocean was NOT from Flight 447. Here are some quotes (source):

But today investigators said the wooden pallet and two buoys recovered was not from Flight 447, but just floating waste believed to be from a ship.

Earlier, investigators had also claimed to have spotted a plane seat and a seven-metre piece of fuselage floating in the ocean from search planes thousands of feet up.

They have not yet confirmed if those pieces of debris were from Flight 447 or not.

Cardoso said the fuel slicks detected in the area were ‘almost certainly from another passing vessel too.’

French investigators said no cause, including a terrorist bomb, had yet been ruled out.

Debris spotted about 340 miles (550 kilometres) northeast of Brazil’s northern Fernando de Noronha islands by the helicopter crew so far includes a 23-foot (seven-metre) chunk of plane, an airline seat, an oil slick and several large brown and yellow pieces that Cardoso said probably came from inside the plane.

WTF? Are you serious? Where is that plane?!!! Do these people really know anything about the debris they are finding?

To raise foul-play suspicions even more, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said that despite evidence that suggests a bomb or explosion, they cannot discard the terrorism theory (source):

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, speaking Thursday in Rio de Janeiro where he attended a Mass honoring the crash victims, said experts had not found signs that would back up a “terrorism theory.”

“But we cannot discard that for now,” he told reporters. “Nothing leads us to believe that there was an explosion, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t one.”

Wow. I guess we’ll be finding out more as the days go by. To me, it still looks like the most likely factors might have been the weather (violent turbulence, towering thunderstorms, lightning, severe wind speeds) or on-board systems malfunctioning (electrical, weather radar, interior sensors). Those theories appear much more reasonable. I can’t believe people are even suggesting bomb plots and UFOs. How odd. People love conspiracies. That’s for sure.

I sincerely hope they find that plane. People need closure. It’s 2009. We have some extremely advanced technologies. Why can’t we find this Flight AF 447?

  1. I’m not sure one can say people ‘love’ conspiracy theories. As far as I know, conspiracies are the rule throughout History. I could list countless examples but I don’t pretend to prove this. Just be curious, go seek informations instead of being passively informed.
    About the AF 447 flight, well… I can’t help but notice that :
    1 – the plane disappeared in a very very small zone where both brazilian and senegalese (Is it senegalese ? not sure but whatever) radars aren’t effectives.
    2 – the sea floor in this precise area is part of the rare few unexplored and unmapped sea zones. It is a chaotic zone where african and south american tectonic plates are drifting.
    3 – the plane had its redundant electronic/electric equipment failing one by one, over some 20 minutes.
    4 – according to a pilot that was following the same air track, an intense white flash and then six glowing parts falling were witnessed in the area. Possibly AF 447 ? If so, the plane has eventually disintegrated.

    At this stage, no theory (conspiracist or not) is satisfying. Just keep your neurons alert and be vigilant.

  2. the secret laser is no secret anymore. The us navy is now retrofitted with lasercannons and railcannon. the laser has longrange tracking………

  3. If the plane started coming apart mid-air it’s quite possible the fuel lines were compromised and exploded. I don’t think there are any indicators at this point that that was was the case. I think an examination of the bodies will help tell some of the story.

  4. What makes my B.S. detectors buzz at full alarm is the way the French authorities are reacting. Now all the talk is about the “Pitot” speed detectors and how if they are not operational this may cause a crash and now the leader of one of the pilot’s unions is asking all pilots to refuse to fly A330 planes as long as the Pitots haven’t been replaced, and it’s just a matter of putting 2 and 2 together by oneself that this malfunction caused the crash. Nobody is saying that this actually caused the crash but it sure seems like they want us to believe this.
    Plus no news mentioned that French Guyana is very close to the area where the plane disappeared, and instead of sending search planes from Cayenne air force base they sent them from Senegal which is much farther. When it comes to black ops the US has nothing on the French believe you me and I’m French.
    I say, from a ballistic point of view the spot where the plane crashed was perfect, having just cleared the landmass. A clean shot from Fr. Guyana.

  5. there are a few interesting thoughts here — kerosene was found in the ocean after an explosion in the air this is impossible — bodies were found (only 41) the only part which was found is the tail — the airplane flying direct behind saw a extreme intense white flashlight — airbus pilots report strange flying silverish objects in the same area before — so there must have been an extreme energy collision at the time and place to destroy the plane (nothing was found) why should a collision with extraterrestrial flying object be excluded — it makes at the time more sense than turbulence or a lightning (there was no report of such weather at the time) — lets face there is more than meets the eye and can be explained by scientists.

  6. I think from the beginning that the French do not want to find the lack Box – Since it is apparent that they knew about the faulty “pitot” sensors – did not change them – and the insurance would not pay for the 50 Mill for the plane or the suits that WILL follow for the victims …I welcome your comments.

  7. I received two photos via email apparently taken by one of the passengers in the aircraft, just after “a collision” and before the aircraft crashed. Apparently, the photos were retrieved from a camera’s memory stick. In the first photo, there is a gaping hole in the fuselage through which you can see the tailplane and vertical fin of the aircraft. In the second photo, one of the passengers is being sucked out of the gaping hole.

    These photos (again apparently) were found in a digital Casio Z750, amidst the remains in Serra do Cachimbo. Although the camera was destroyed, the Memory Stick was recovered. Investigating the serial number of the camera, the owner was identified as Paulo G. Muller, an actor of a theatre for children known in the outskirts of Porto Alegre. Judging by the angle of the photos, it can be imagined that he was standing during the turbulence, he managed to take these photos, just seconds after “the collision” and the aircraft plunged.

    Authentic? The photos look authentic, but that doesn’t go for much in 21st century digital land. If nothing else it proves: people love a conspiracy. Next question is, why?

  8. A basic evaluation seems to indicate that the cause of mishap is the blocking of the pitot tube. at the level the `lane was flying it is highly probable that the pitot tube was totally blocked with ice therefore giving a false reading. This false reading automatically prompted the captain to seek safety at higher altitude and, at a given altitude the aircraft just started to disintegrate over a vast area of very deep ocean. I venture an opinion that not very much of the plane will ever be found

  9. This comment is for the individual who posted on the 18th of June. I don’t know if you have ever watched the show lost but that is clearly a screen shot from the show. Pay close attention to the girl in the foreground who looks and awful lot like kate from lost and coincidentally is wearing handcuffs! Also the tail that you see in the back is clearly not the tail from aff 447 considering the obvious markings that are lacking. B

  10. Saw a prog on UK TV about A447 last night. The explanation was the Pitot-failure one, where all 3 pitots ice-up due to super cooled liquid water. The flight computer then cannot measure the aircraft speed – the key parameter that allows appropriate control of all other systems. So all other systems fail one by one thus setting in motion a train of events that eventually leads to the crash. All sounds very plausible. There was just one thing, though, it mentioned that the pitots had a in built heating system to prevent icing. So why on this occasion did the heaters no function effectively. I’m far from being a “conspiricist” but would like to get that little inconsistency ironed out. Any thoughts, anyone?

  11. you can believe what you want but it is obvious that it is a government cover up, this plain was shot down for reasons unknown to the world, but you can bet it had something to do with this New World Order, think about it as most of the world governments are involved & they don’t care who they have to kill to fulfill their evil plan; enslaving the world & rebuilding a 21 century roman empire, laugh if you must but it’s the strangest theories that are usually the most correct! Such as the C.I.A attacking the twin towers they did it & only they know the real reason for doing it?????

  12. In my opinion the sad loss of Flt 447 on June 1st 2009 was simply a malfuction of the
    air conditioning system. All onboard would have fallen asleep,suffercated and died.
    This would explain why there was no disstres call from the flight deck and no sea water in the lungs of the few bodies recovered. For more information go to and read report no. 2010-008.

  13. was there anybody on board – who’s untimely death could have been beneficial for a powerful interest?
