To all speculating GZCP has the whole array..GPS SATCOM ACARS SELCAL..no airline is going to get into the specifics without facts..this will be treated as aircraft missing comm lost till the first sign of contact in whatever form that might be :-(. AF MCC has live tracking as well and I have a feeling loss of contact times will be corrected too. The ELT would have been triggered too.. so there will be something soon

This is real life not a movie, book, or video game, people will feel pain and if you can not at least show respect and empathy it would probably be best to say nothing at all.
Actually this is abovetopsecret.com. Where's the harm in speculation? Be it supernatural or otherwise? As of this moment in time, this is a genuine mystery and should be treated as such.
The ANSA news agency says the Air France plane was carrying at least five Italians.
French radio Europe 1 says about 60 French people are aboard plane.
