The plane was flying from Geneva to London when it suffered an engine failure in July. It landed safely in Paris.

Accident investigators asked anyone walking in a forest about 90km south of Paris to keep an eye out for any engine debris as initial examinations showed the engine had lost part of a compressor.

Some parts have now been found and 200 searchers are in the area looking for more.
