Man's body found in landing gear of plane that had travelled from Brazil to Paris

The body of a man was found in the landing gear of an Air France plane that had flown to Paris from Brazil, Agence France Presse reports.

Maintenance workers discovered the body on the Boeing 777 at Paris' Orly airport, two days after the flight arrived from Sao Paulo, a police source said.

A source for the airport said forensic experts are working to identify the body.

In a similar case in 2013, a dead stowaway was found in the landing gear of a plane that had landed at Charles de Gaulle from Cameroon.
