Air France Black Box Rumors

OK, remember the Air France 447 plane that suddenly dropped out of the sky in 2009 over the Atlantic for no apparent reason? Hmm, well they have finally retrieved the black box and guess what? Rumor has it there was no pilot in the cockpit!!!! He can be allegedly heard rushing into the cockpit and yelling instructions to the co-pilots in an attempt to save the plane after it struck trouble. Oooh but before you go blame gaming the cause of the crash was more than likely due to ice crystals clogging up the pitot tube (instrument that measures airspeed) when they flew into bad weather.

Want sauce with that?
