The search party is huge, like from Brazil all the way to the African coast or something insane like that, very much reminds me of Lost
An Air France plane carrying 228 people from Brazil to France has vanished over the Atlantic after flying into turbulence, airline officials say.
The Airbus sent an automatic message at 0214 GMT, four hours after leaving Rio de Janeiro, reporting a short circuit. It may have been damaged by lightning.
It was well over the ocean when it was lost, making Brazilian and French search planes' task more difficult.
France's president said the chances of finding survivors were "very small".
