How do they not drown when they are in the open sea????????

...throwing the ADIRU out of `sync`
being buffeted from the updraft in the MCS , the aircraft is now below stall speed , and enters stall warning
here is the crux , the aircraft has eronous data from the warm air , and is being thrown around from stall/mach 1 , and being bounced around inside the MCS - a combination of factors leading to the aircraft simply flying apart from the stress.

This is interesting to say the least. 16 bodies were apparently recovered but their condition/ exactly how maimed they is unknown, at least to me.
Did these bodies have lifejackets on? This could explain the absence of water in the lungs.
Perhaps the rest didn't and drowned when they hit the water, they will probably eventually pop up out of the ocean a few days or weeks later, unless their bodies are consumed by the denizens of the sea.
Just 30 minutes ago, in the daily night-news-program on the brazilian TV channel "Band", the leader of the IML in Recife said (Institute for autopsies):
"The 16 bodies we've pre-autopsied, so far, can't be recognized and or identified by parents/related persons. No one of the recovered bodies had clothes on. No one of the bodies had water in their lungs nor signs of smoke. No one of the bodies presented any kind of fire/heat exposure. Allmost all bodies show middle to heavy internal contusions."

Why is Airbus issuing an advisory?
The plane lost altitude - rapidly and broke up - no fire no chance of drowning
pray if you go in a plane one day its this quick and one hopes painless
There is no real conspiracy unless its the failure of engineers and ground staff to check vital equipment was checked
Enough with this speculation till the CAA provides some real time line to the flights demise - we owe that at least to the families and victims of this tragedy .
Wise words of course and completely agree. BUT
If no water and no burns we should - as all good conspiracists should - look at how the forum members can now look at the other possibilities.
Did you see the UFO + mexican pilot story recently

Hunka, I like your posts...but the SAA (with apologies to MikeSingh) just won't fly, this time (no pun!)
Solar flares tend to last a good long time. The hemisphere of the Earth was pointed away from the Sun. AND the other airplanes in the region were unscathed.
But, biggest reason? The SAA is effective hundreds of KM above the surface, well above the altitudes of airplanes.
This reminds me of the Aloha Airlines flight that also broke up in mid air -
