There are some people who could be regarded as rather cynical with the things our Governments say. Roswell, 11th September attacks, the moon landings and JFK's assassination all have conspiracy theorists studying them and smelling something fishy and such is happening with the case of Air France flight 447.
I admit that it is an unusual case that the plane and its passengers has just disappeared without trace although the news is reporting that they have now retrieved 5 bodies, one of which luckily had their Air France tickets about their persons. That was a stroke of fortune because apparently the Atlantic is chock-a-block with junk from downed aircraft's. Original reports from Brazil that they had discovered seats from the wreckage were quickly dismissed as simply sea junk.
It also doesn’t help the mystery when 12 other planes, who were flying the same air route around the same time, did not report any problems with weather conditions.
There was also no distress call and Air France have confirmed 24 error messages were sent as the systems closed down one by one. As usual, we turn to the Internet to find out what the people think may have happened.
Terrorist attack. Unlikely as normal practise is for some group to claim responsibility almost immediately and as yet nobody has came forward.
Struck by lightning. Every expert and their dog has been on the television ruling it out, stating that modern planes can easily withstand a direct strike.
A series of unfortunate events. Unless it was almost immediate, there would have been time to send a distress signal.
Assassination. I am not aware of any big wigs among the passengers but this theory will grow some legs if it later appears that a person of dubious character was among the passengers.
Living on a desert island. Fans of 'Lost' really need to get out more.
The most unusual thing for me is that no wreckage has been found. Things float and an aeroplane the size of an airbus would leave a massive of debris and bodies bobbing about in the Ocean. I find it hard to believe that the plane hit the water and sank in one piece so where is it all?
It certainly is a conspiracy theorists dream.
