Reports posted at CNN's website quote the Brazilian air force as saying that the debris retrieved Thursday were not from the doomed Air France flight 447.

Here are excerpts from the CNN report entitled Brazilian air force says debris was not from Air France crash:

The Brazilian air force said that debris picked up Thursday near where officials believe Air France Flight 447 crashed Monday into the Atlantic Ocean was not from the plane.

"It has been verified that the material did not belong to the plane," Brigadier Ramon Borges Cardoso told reporters in Recife about the material recovered Thursday. "It is a pallet of wood that is utilized for transport. It is used in planes, but on this flight to Paris, there was no wooden pallet."

He added that oil slicks seen on the ocean were not from the plane, either, and that the quantity of oil exceeded the amount the plane would have carried.

"No material from the airplane was picked up," he said.

These are video reports by John Zarrella and Brian Todd of CNN.  Please take note that some of these video reports were filed before this news from the Brazilian air force saying the debris are not from Flight 447:
