    This amazing guy had lived all over the world with his parents and sister. His last school was Clifton College, and he was on this flight, on his way back to school, after half term with his family. The school were told in assembly, with the exclusion of his classmates who were told separately, some by their housemasters and housemistresses, some by the headmaster, and the other boys in his boarding house, who were told the previous evening. There is now a memorial chair in one of the school gardens, which is frequently visited by his friends. His life did not go unnoticed, and everyone who knew him mourns his loss still today...
    RIP Alex, buddy. We miss you

    As I am die hard aviation enthusiast I had kept a close watch on the investigations of AF447 crash. My heart and mind goes to the relatives of the victims. Its so difficult to digest the fact that the plane had disappered over the Atlantic taking 228 souls with it by looking at the planes last picture which was shot on 31st May 2009, a day before the crash.
    I just cant imagine what would have been going in the heart and mind of all those people who were waiting for the loved ones when the news about the planes crash broke out...!!!
    R.I.P to all the 228 souls and to the A330.

    I was in France. I was maybe 19 or 20 years old. I told my mother I would go to Brazil with Jean-Claude who was leaving soon to live there.. It was more than 30 years ago. He was such a gentle person, a gentleman in his own way. I don't know why, I was Googling his name 2 months ago, in the middle of the night, and when I read with horror the news, I couldn't believe it. I sent the rest of the night remembering him, the good time we shared, with him and my older brother...Sad. So sad..... http://static.respectance.com/m1/memories/92nokn3bmfe7ml_s.png

    Following the discovery of the wreckage yesterday, it brings back the overwhelming shock and sadness of the AF tragedy of 2009. I had the priviledge of knowing one of the passengers and she has never been far from my mind since. I go to sleep tonight praying that this discovery can bring some kind of peace to some of the families of this disaster. As difficult, upsetting and disturbing i'm sure this new news has been for them today, i hope it can bring some good with it too. God bless the search teams and give them the strength to give the next few weeks work all their energy in the hope of some victims getting the chance to return to their homeland and receive the proper goodbye that they deserve. The chance for the families to be able to say goodbye in a less surreal way than was forced upon them. God bless all the passengers of 447, i pray that they didnt suffer and that they are in a better place and most especially god bless their families who they had to leave behind before their time.

    I am on a vessel in the search area at the moment, we have been out here for 10 days searching for the wreckage. Working 12 hour shifts around the clock with the worlds most sophisticated sonar equipment. Not a day goes by that I do not look up to the heavens and consider the situation, I think about my children who travel several times to and from Europe, I think about you. Although I do not know your names or your story I have spent the last 2 weeks pouring through reports along with the BEA reps and Air Forces Transport, we all speak with great respect for the situation and are doing all we can to find some closure for you.

    As a fellow international traveler, I have followed this tragedy with shock and horror. I can only hope that you are resting peacefully now and that your families are slowly recovering from their loss.

    One can only hope that your deaths are somehow avenged - in the form of holding the correct people accountable and ensuring that your fate helps others escape such disaster.
    This will only come by asking the right questions, a few of which include 1) Why rescue planes were not dispatched the moment that messages describing a catastrophic loss of cabin pressure/electrical system failure were received? Were the decision-makers under the impression that such problems at 35,000 ft over 20,000 ft of ocean signaled anything but a crash?
    Rescue orders were not given until hours after the flight was supposed to land.
    2) The Pitot type-AA tubes which were known to be faulty for years. Thales, Airbus and AF need to provide answers.
    3) Protocol for creating flight paths which lead into known dangerous storm areas (fuel optimization vs. passenger safety). Protocol for changing flight paths when severe storms are expected. Four other flights flew a similar route that evening; all avoided the tropical storm convergence zone and all landed safely.

    I feel a tremendous sense of loss for you 228. While I never knew you, I am saddened and angered by your passing. This should never have happened. You should still be alive. I cry with your families.
