Emergency services are this afternoon searching for signs of an Air France jet that disappeared off the north-eastern coast of Brazil, in what has been described as a 'Lost scenario'.
Flight AF447 was en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris, but was out of radar range when it disappeared. A search and rescue mission was under way near the island of Fernando de Noronha, the last place the plane was known to have been.
It's thought that the disappearance may have been of the same type as that in the Lost television series, where Oceanic Flight 815, a flight from Sydney, Australia bound for Los Angeles, crash-landed on a seemingly-uninhabited paradise island in the Pacific.
Five series later, the surviving passengers are still stuck on the island, albeit in different time periods!
Investigators into today's incident say that, if, indeed, it is a similar scenario, then survivors may not be found for years, if ever. They are currently obtaining passenger lists, and will contact family members of those on board Flight AF447 to see if they had ever met any of their relatives in the past, or in the future, or in the present but either much younger or older, just like in Lost.
Hope they're alright.
