An Air France plane carrying 288 people from San Paolo Brazil, en route to Paris is still not found as of 9:34 a.m. Central Time. Officials are speculating that the chances are slim that the aircraft was hit by lightning although they are not ruling out that possibility.

The aircraft, an Airbus 330, left Rio on Sunday at 7pm. local time with 216 passengers and 12 crew members on board. About 4 hours later, an automatic signal was sent indicating electrical problems while going through a strong turbulence, according to Air France. Brazil's last contact with the plane was at 930pm. Eastern time, but did not say where the plane was at that time.According to experts, it is clear that the plane is no longer on the air due to the amount of fuel it could carry. According to analysts, the conclusion would have been that "something catastrophic" happened that caused the disappearance of the plane.
