The body of the pilot of the Air France plane that crashed into the Atlantic on June 1 has been recovered, Reuters reports. A pilots union identified him as Marc Dubois, a 58-year-old Frenchman who had 21 years of experience at the airline. A male steward also was identified. More than 50 of the 228 bodies have been found so far, and all are undergoing autopsies in Brazil. Searchers have yet to find the black box.
