The pilots of Air France flight AF447 from Rio to Paris saw different and invalid speeds on their instruments before the Airbus A330-203 crashed into the Atlantic in June 2009, France's BEA aviation safety agency said Friday.

"There was an inconsistency between the speeds displayed on the left side and the integrated standby instrument system (ISIS). This lasted for less than one minute," the BEA said in statement following its analysis of the recovered flight data recorders.
