Air France flight aborted

An Air France jet, en route from Paris to Sao Paulo, had to return to Charles de Gaulle airport due to the failure of the onboard fire extinguishing system.

According to eyewitnesses, the plane spent another two hours in mid-air dumping the extra fuel before landing at Charles de Gaulle international airport. None of the 185 passengers was hurt.

On July 1, 2009 a Paris-bound Air France Airbus A330 crashed into the Atlantic shortly after taking off from Rio de Janeiro, killing all 228 passengers and crew.
