The body of a man was found at Paris' Orly airport Monday in the landing gear of an Air France plane that had flown in from Brazil, police and airport sources said.

The corpse was discovered during maintenance operations on the Boeing 777 at Orly after flying in to Paris' main international Charles de Gaulle airport from Sao Paulo two days earlier, a police source said.

The body is undergoing examination at Paris' forensic institute so it can be identified, an airport source said.
