The EgyptAir plane that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea with 66 people on board went into a sudden spin and plunged 22,000ft before vanishing off the radar, a Greek minister revealed today.

Flight MS804 came down near the Greek island of Karpathos ten miles into Egyptian airspace at around 00.30am GMT without making a distress call.

It departed Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris at 9.09pm GMT last night and was scheduled to arrive at Cairo Airport at 1.15am GMT.

Greek defence minister Panos Kammenos said the Airbus A320 made ‘sudden swerves’ mid-air, lurching 90 degrees to the left then 360 degrees to the right as it fell out of the sky.

He said the plane dropped from 37,000 feet to 15,000ft before the signal was lost at around 10,000 feet.

The revelation came after a former air accident chief said all the evidence was pointed to the plane being targeted in a terrorist attack.

The 56 passengers on board included one Briton, 30 Egyptians, 15 French, one Belgian, one Iraqi, one Kuwaiti, one Saudi Arabian, one Chadian, one Portuguese, one Algerian and one Canadian. There were 10 crew members including three security guards.

Jean-Paul Troadec, the former chief of the BEA national investigation unit, said the lack of a live emergency alert suggested a ‘brutal event’.

Vanished: EgyptAir flight MS804  heading from Paris to Cairo is believed to have crashed into the sea after disappearing from radar. There were 66 people on board the Airbus A320 (pictured) that vanished 40 minutes before it was set to land in Egypt early Thursday morning

  1. The central tendency of Islam, its violence, is its automatic and inevitable manifest, and absolutely mandates the expulsion of Islam.

    There is no cogent counter argument and history is allowing the US of A the opportunity to demonstrate that this sanctimonious crime wave is no more tolerable today than it was to Jefferson two centuries ago.

    A Muslim-free American Hemisphere starts with a Muslim-free American Republic. And every American school child should be cheerfully reciting:

    I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation free from Theocracy, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. :

    At least please think about it.


  2. just when Egypt was considering peace with Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group. It can’t be a coincidence. We know it wasn’t a ufo ….


    • In fact Israel and Egypt now see each other as allies in the fight against Islamic terrorism and actively cooperate. The el-Sisi government has outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and ISIS, closed 27,000 mosques, and has launched many attacks on ISIS affiliates in Sinai. No surprise they are a prime target for terrorists.
