Yes, I know all that. I'm not sure if any of you understood my question... (It's probably my fault for not being clear enough)
What I was meaning to ask is have they used sonar or any other equipment to find out the depth? If not, then how can anyone know what depth of the wreckage?


Yes they have used sonar to try and locate the black box, but right at this moment, nothing has turned up :( .

Touché, nice answer

Titanic collided with an iceberg.

I think when Jacob said "It sounds to me like it crashed and hit some kind of underwater mountain or something" , he was referring to the Air France crash, not the sinking of the titanic... :wink:

We were talking about Titanic...so I thought he meant that, and the fact that no one knows whether AF447 DID crash into an underwater mountain...did it?

I was just comparing the site of the wreckage on the sea floor, not what it collided with :wink: .
