Amid speculations and conjecture into what caused EgyptAir Flight MS804 to disappear suddenly from radar last night, the search continues in the Mediterranean Sea to find what, if anything, is left of the flight.

The last contact made with the A-320 Airbus was made over the Island of Kea, just before the flight entered Cairo. According to Athens Greek Defense Minister, “The airbus swerved 90 degrees to the Right and then quickly back to the Left before falling from 37,000 feet and vanishing from radar”. According to various sources at EgyptAir, who spoke anonymously: “The event that brought last night’s flight down took place just 10 miles in Egyptian airspace and approximately 10 minutes prior to landing.”
As neither the plane’s quality of maintenance nor the quality of structure are in question, it does appear that terrorism may have played a part in this flight’s disappearance.

The passenger’s nationalities that were on board flight MS804 were:
