EgyptAir Flight 804 with 66 on board crash SE off Crete

Egypt Air Flight MS804 disappeared from the flight radars in the early morning hours of Thursday. Eight hours later and despite a huge Search And Rescue operation, there is reportedly no sign of the airplane that most probably went down in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, 7 nautical miles south-east off the island of Crete.

The plane was flying from Paris in France to Cairo in Egypt.


The Commander of Greek Civil Avition, Kostas Lyntzerakis, told Greek media in the morning that they had contact with the pilot at 3:05 a.m. local time. Attempts to contact the pilot again at 3:26 a.m., when the plane was exiting the Greek FIR were in vain. Three minutes later, the signal of the plane disappeared from the flight radar.

Greek authorities are investigating reports from residents of the Greek island of Karpathos but also by the captain of a merchant ship south of the island of Karpathos, that they saw “a flame in the sky”


Reports coming from Egypt seem rather confusing, with authorities to claim that they received a distress signal at  5:29 a.m. local time, which is due to time difference still one hour after the Greek Civil Aviation stopped receiving the signal and informed the Egypt Civil Aviation accordingly.

Egypt military denied it had received a distress signal from MS804, despite earlier confirmation from .

At 10:45 a.m. Egypt Air confirmed the crash.

Search And Rescue forces from Greece and Egypt continue operation to locate the plane in a radius of 40 nautical miles around the latest position.

Egypt authorities said that Greece has the command over the SAR.

The scenarios speculate from ‘mechanical defect’ to ‘human error’ and ‘terror attack’ or even a ‘missile attack’. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that “No theory can be ruled out.”


The weather conditions were fair at the time of the crash.

    When I hear of stories like this, it saddens me. Why are there such evil people out there. I mean, truly, everyone says we’ve come such a long, long way…We’re civilized, isn’t that nice?

    We’ve gotten so smart…We know how to blow the whole world apart
    But when it comes to the simple things….(like living together) . . . ha!

    Well, thank God that there will always be those believe…that life here began out there, far across the Universe…with tribes of humans…who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians…or the Toltecs…or the Mayans…that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids…or the lost civilizations of Lemuria…or Atlantis.

    Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man…who even now fight to survive–somewhere beyond the heavens!

    Why are fighting amongst ourselves instead of finding those others who are trying to find us at this moment?

    Sorry for my rambling everyone, it looks like I picked the wrong week to stop alcohol.

    I find it relaxing to collate ideas, and thoughts I have heard from my favorite TV shows, who are written by better men than I, and I often wonder why they are not on our election ballots.
