An Air France A330-200 flying from Rio de Janeiro to Paris encountered heavy turbulence over the Atlantic, about four hours after departure on Nov. 29. Sound familiar?
The circumstances are nearly identical to those surrounding Air France Flight 447, which was lost on June 1, killing 228 people.
The Nov. 29 flight rode out moderate to heavy turbulence and proceeded safely to Paris, the Associated Press reports. French authorities are examining this case, hoping it will shed light on what happened to Flight 447.
