ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Police and forensic teams on foot and in helicopters investigated the site about 100 km (65 miles) north of Nice where the Germanwings airliner slammed into mountains in what aviation officials was a sharp descent but not free-fall. "When we go to a crash site we expect to find part of the fuselage. But here we see nothing at all," pilot Xavier Roy, coordinating air operations, said of the confetti of debris. Roy says teams of investigators had been dropped by helicopter onto the site and were working roped together at altitudes of around 2,000 meters (6,000 feet).
