Smoke alarms were set off before EgyptAir crash, reports say
An EgyptAir passenger MS804 flight carrying 69 people from Paris to Cairo has reportedly gone missing after it disappeared from the radar over the Mediterranean sea.
Reports say the passenger flight was about twenty minutes away from landing and had approached ten miles into Egyptian airspace before it went missing from the radar.
Egyptian officials have sent out search and rescue teams and have arrived at a specific location with Ihab Raslan, a spokesman for the Egyptian civil aviation authority, saying the plane most likely crashed into the Mediterranean sea.
According to Raslan, before the plane went missing on the radar, there was no distress signal issues, no mechanical problems with the plane and the skies were clear.
He also informed that there were three security guards on board the plane at the time.
The passenger flight was supposed touch down at 3:05am local time. There were 56 passengers, including two babies and a child, and 10 crew on the flight.
A French airport official said: ‘It did not land, that is all we can say for the moment.’
