Two years ago, Air France Flight 447 was on its way back to Paris from Rio de Janeiro when it completely disappeared - without issuing a mayday call or leaving even a trace on radar.  


After three search attempts, by boat, mini-sub, and sonar, the jetliner was finally discovered on April 3, 2011 with the help of an autonomous submarine called the Remus 6000.
