    French investigators may be close to finding out what happened to Air France flight 447 in 2009.

    The Airbus plane, scheduled to fly from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, to Paris, the French capital, plunged into the Atlantic Ocean several hours after take-off, killing everyone on board.

    Almost two years later, the plane's flight recorders have been retrieved from the bottom of the ocean and are on their way to investigators in the French capital. 

    Now the victims' families face a painful dilemma, as Paul Brennan explains from Paris.
