Egypt Airline Missing, ‘Smoke detected inside the aircraft cabin’

The data on its own is far from definitive but the pilot believed “an internal explosion” seemed the most likely cause, explaining both the sudden problems with the windows and the smoke in the cabin. “It looks like the right front and side windows were blown out, most probably from inside out,” the pilot said.

There is still a lot we don’t know. But the data from ACARS seems to point towards a bomb.

EgyptAir flight MS804 was carrying 66 people – including a British dad-of-two – from Paris to Cairo yesterday when it disappeared from radar.

Egypt’s Civil Aviation Ministry confirmed this afternoon that crews have found human remains in the search for the missing Airbus A320.

The parts, discovered in the Mediterranean sea, were found alongside ‘passengers’ belongings’ and plane seats, the ministry said in a statement.

The search area for the plane – which is believed to have plummeted tens of thousands of feet into the ocean – is currently 40 miles, officials said.
