The Air France jet that crashed into the Atlantic sent out 24 automatic error messages in its final moments as its systems, including the autopilot, shut down, investigators said on Saturday.

The director of the French air accident investigation agency, Paul-Louis Arslanian, said that it was impossible to tell from the signals whether the doomed crew had shut off the autopilot or whether it cut out.
