The cause of the crash, which happened soon after take-off, was not known. Witnesses said it dropped from the sky.
French investigators trying to find out why an Air France plane crashed in the Atlantic say they believe it broke up on contact with water, not in the air. They also found that the plane's speed sensors had been "a factor but not the cause" of the crash.

What can be causing these crashes? It seems very unusual that they have all happened within a couple of months of eachother with no sure confirmation of why. What factors can contribute to a plane malfunction? Do the government know more than they are saying?

Have you seen the in-air photos taken by an Air France passenger that shows the rear part of the aircraft breaking up and the blue sky as well as the tailplane at an abnormal angle?
As well as a passenger being sucked out of the hole in the fuselage.
