"We have very clear images of the engine and fuselage and the underbelly of the plane. I understand there are bodies, but I haven't seen any of those photos," said Gallo, who was there when the Woods Hole ship sailed from a Brazilian port and is now back in his office on Cape Cod. Scientists on the ship are not allowed to speak about what they have seen.
"The whole area is being treated like a crime scene," Gallo said. "It's in the hands of the French judicial system now. Right now I'm not allowed to communicate with the ship."
