Air Force spokesman Col. Jorge Amaral told the Agencia Brasil official news service that authorities were investigating the report. "There is information that the pilot of a TAM aircraft saw several orange points on the ocean while flying over the region," he said.
But Brazil's air force said in a Tuesday statement that a French merchant ship — the Douce France — had conducted a search of the area where TAM reported seeing fire "without identifying any trace of the flight."
Air France spokesman Nicolas Petteau said Tuesday that the airline had no information about any sighting of a fire or debris. France's Defense Minister Herve Morin said "we have no signs so far" indicating terrorism was involved. Still, he added on French radio, "All hypotheses must be studied."
I had written, some time back in our ALTA reports, about the [disappearances], and how some of ThePowersThatBe would be walking along, and simply vanish….and not to a ‘good place’. I had described how it would freak out the rest of TPTB seriously, and they will react as though the [disappearances] were a ‘thing’ of the material world such as a kidnapping, or murder.
They will gather [security forces] around themselves in large numbers in some cases, and it will matter not. In our work the details of the data sets indicated that these TPTB creatures, and in some instances, their entire cadres of ‘body guards’, would, in an instant, [disappear] to a not nice place.
The rickety time machine indicates more is due to show up on this topic over the weekend, [the weekend just gone] so check back Monday and we'll follow the next twisty-turny of this most curiouser and curiouser line of inquiry...
The effects of this upon the world of the [power elite] will be quite interesting to observe. Look for it later in 2009. I have been watching the net closely for the 'disappearances' meme to set in, since that's something predicted in the HPH linguists. Some time after July 15th we ought to be reading .lines about a ship with 50-people aboard being found in Mary Celeste fashion, abandoned with no trace of living humans - and even more mystifying - no sign of violence.
RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - The chairman of German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp's Brazilian unit CSA was on board the Air France flight that disappeared over the Atlantic ocean, a company source said on Monday

Here is a video, which is presenting why the lightning theory is not the best at all. On this video, you can see as a 747, full with passengers are hit by lightnings, twice. And this craft flew further without any problem. This 747 is also quite older then the state of the art A330.

Does anyone this there could be a remote connection here?
Here's a short extract on the recent report
They are not yet saying the plane has crashed but that the ultra modern & extreemly safe Airbus 330 suddenly 'disappeared' from radar screens due to a electrical "short circuit"... very strange indeed: Air France said that the aircraft had sent a message reporting an electrical "short circuit" after strong turbulence.
The company said the plane had probably been struck by lightning. An Airbus source described the failure as "catastrophic" suggesting a sudden and unexplained systems failure.
What does this mean exactly? How could a large ultra modern aircraft with numerous safety backups suddenly drop from the air like that? doesn't make sense. The plane was designed to withstand a lightning strikes as well -infact Airbus A330 has sophisticated Lightening Strike protection - so even if a lightening strike hit an engine the plane has fail safe systems to compensate for this ..
So what else could have happened... well an electrical short circuits can be caused by an EMF pulse. Many near misses with Ufos have reported strong electromegnetic interference, similar to an EMF pulse which disables all electrical equipment. .. could this have happened in this circumstance?
