Officials say Air France debris found

French officials say debris found in the Atlantic is that of missing Air France Flight 447.

French military spokesman Christophe Prazuck says French military planes surveyed the remains initially spotted by Brazilian planes, and determined that the debris "corresponds to this plane."

Prazuck says it is time to move to a "naval operation" to collect the remains and then "a submarine one" to try to find the plane's black boxes.

Prazuck says the concentration and nature of the debris all indicate the remains are those of Flight 447.

Brazilian military pilots yesterday spotted an airplane seat, a fuel slick and pieces of white debris scattered along three miles (five kilometers) of open ocean.
