France’s Bureau d’Enquetes et d’Analyses has released this striking map of the debris field from flight AF447, the Airbus A330-200 which crashed in the South Atlantic in June 2009.

AF 447 debris field shown is incomplete because other debris was found in different locations. The map shown is,therefore, incomplete.
My point is that the first find was the vertical stabilizer and other
floating items. This,coupled with the fact that bodies apparently were
also found elsewhere,strongly suggesting an inflight break-up. What are
the real distances between the various debris found?
The incident in New York where a flight broke off the vertical stab
due to inappropriate pilot action may have aconnection in this case.
I agree with you. I think the method to put the vertical stabilizer is incorrect because the American Airlines A300 material is older than the Air France A330-200.
