“Airbus and regulators had established procedures to handle such situations with the probes, which are called pitot tubes.”
“Automatic messages sent by the Airbus 330's computers showed it was receiving false air speed readings from sensors known as pitot tubes.”
“As part of the Air France crash probe, investigators identified at least 17 instances of temporary malfunctions of external speed sensors, called pitot tubes, on A330 and A340 aircraft world-wide between 2003 and 2008.”

“The external sensors, called pitot tubes, can malfunction because they may "become partially or completely blocked by water" during or after flying through heavy rain, according to the agency.”
“Investigators surmise that the plane flew through a thunderstorm, causing a temperature gauge to be coated with ice and thus give false readings which in turn caused speed sensors, known as pitot tubes, to give even more false readings, ultimately tripping the cascade of failures throughout the plane's computer systems that sent AF447 into the ocean.”
“Automated maintenance data sent from the plane indicated serious problems with its speed probes, known as pitot tubes.”
“Delta currently is installing new airspeed sensors, known as pitot tubes, on its A330 fleet and expects to complete the work soon.”

very comprehensive list

calamari? hmm yum
100,000 species just in molluscs
