David Kaminski-Morrow, Air Transport Editor at FlightGlobal, published two interesting stories on the AF447 aftermath which now is best described as the acrimonious phase.

They felt they simply have to know what happened – if there is something to fix, they need to know what it is. The black boxes were found, data recovered and analyzed. Here we are now, as David explains, we know what happened. But why did it happen?
