Earlier yesterday morning a flight carrying 66 people (56 passengers/10 crew members) aboard EgyptAir suddenly turned up missing on radar after reaching an altitude of 37,000 feet. The plane departed around 11:30PM from Paris, France and was heading to Cairo, Egypt at an estimated arrival time of 3:15AM.’
Unfortunately what we most feared has been confirmed today by Greece’s Defense Minister Panos Kammenos, that Airbus A320 had made to sharp turns before going into a rapid descent. The Egyptian navy is currently conducting a search over the Mediterranean to look for wreckage. Per BBC, Egypt’s civil aviation minister has stated that given the nature of the planes movements before descending the possibility of a terrorist attack is stronger than technical failure. There was a total of 66 people onboard flight A320 including the crew, mostly from Egypt and France. There were also 3 children onboard, two of which were infants.
