Ad Feedback

More debris from the crashed Air France flight 447 has been spotted, according to a Brazilian air force spokesman.

A 23-foot long chunk of the plane was found, although there were no obvious markings that would identify the jet, Col. Jorge Amaral said.

Amaral says no bodies were seen in the latest wreckage spotted about 55 miles south of where the main debris field lies.

On Tuesday, floating debris was discovered about 400 miles off the coast of Brazil. Also spotted were about 10 other metal objects and an oil slick.

The discovery of the 23-foot long chunk is the latest since military planes from Brazil, France and the United States were dispatched to the area where the jet vanished from radar Monday.

Meanwhile, loved ones of the 228 passengers aboard that flight continue to arrive at a Rio de Janeiro hotel, where an emergency center has been set up to offer counseling and information.

An American couple was among those on board. Michael and Anne Harris moved from Texas to Rio about a year ago.

The Airbus A-330 was on its way from Rio de Janeiro to Paris when vanished from radar Monday.

There is still little clue as to why.

Investigators are anxious to retrieve the plane's black boxes.

But that could prove to be an enormous challenge.

The waters are more than 22,000 feet deep.
