What depth is it resting in feet????

This should be interesting.
Especially with the criminal investigation with arrests made.
Hang'em!

Choke and puke at 36,000 feet.

Amazing....now if we could only find Amelia Earhart...

just idle curiousity--- it appears all the tires are deflated - what caused that? Is the pressure at 10,000 ft below sea level greater than tire pressure? Or does saltwater corrode blowout plugs (or another component? Like I said, just idle curiousity. Hopefully this search will yield flight data recorders and they will have something useful to divulge.

Always fly the aircraft first, then deal with the emergency.

Pressure at 10k feet = 4500 psi or 300 atm so yes, that will "deflate" the tires even if they did not leak.

Also, Boeing lists 215 psi as pressure for the main gear of a 777-300. And if want a grisly mental picture (why would you? IDK), read "Table 1" at http://www.boeing.com/commercial/aeromagazine/aero_05/textonly/m03txt.html

yikes ... yup, 4500 psi certainly would 'win' ... by the way, the other article linked on Flight Aware puts the depth at 3900 meters, which is almost 13,000 ft down, not 10,000 ft....

thanks alfadog

pilot195, pressure underwater doubles every 30 feet (roughly), so yes it's quite easy to say the pressure that low is much greater than tire pressure which is likely in the 100-150 psi range depending on the tire. Although I read a different article with these pictures that indicated they were much deeper than 10,000, I think it was around 16,000 to 18,000 feet.

195, YW and Andy, only by a few minutes ;-)
BTW, http://www.calctool.org/CALC/other/games/depth_press is the pressure calculator.

One of these days they may find the Flight Recorders. While we think we know the why of what caused the plane to crash into the sea until we have the flight recorders, and hopefully they are readable, we will never know for sure what happened on this flight.

In-effing-credible. Thumbs up to the Woods Hole folks...well done! I just hope they find those Flight Data Recorders.'

Yeah, that tire would be toast at that depth.

There's one other thing that I'd like to know... Is this an area previously covered by search attempts?

did they ever find the wreckage of teh Air France 747 (I believe) that crashed near Brazil.?

Hilda.....that's what this is. AF = Air France.

oh crap,.sorry i thought it was a 747 .. thanks so much I had wondered as I didn't hear of any recent water crashes.. it's good to hear about this though as it gives family some closure. still sad though.

It was flight 447. Yes, it's sad but it's great that they found it. I would hate to know that I was lost at sea forever and nobody could find me.

Andy A - pressure doesn't double every 30 feet down, but it does increase by 1atmosphere or 14.7 psi every 33. (sorry, old scuba diver here) Still pretty respectable pressure at that depth.

@John.... I was thinking the same thing....but it was close enough for the purpose, so I didn't say anyhting. ;)

(It just happens to double on the first one.)

Ya think?

where is the rest of the plane

Question is, where is the black box (really they are two, and they are not black: the cockpit voice recorder and the avionics recorder)? Those will answer many questions.

The flight recorders will be much harder to locate without a signal from trhese devices. Wonder what de bottom is made of at these depths. Is it rock, mud, sand; Do they have a chance to find it if it is burried in 8 feet of mud?

Pressure = weight/sq ft and water is heavy!

cant they send a diver dowen ther and look for the black boxes
