EgyptAir MS804 from Paris to Cairo with 66 people on board,(56 passengers and 10 crews) has just been declared missing by the airline authorities. It is reported that the plane vanished from radar 16km after it entered the Egyptian airspace; fifteen minutes before it's scheduled to land at Cairo. No distress call or technical failure was received from the plane before its disappearance from radar.
Right now, authorities and aviation experts around the world are working in full swing to
ascertain the fate of the plane. Family and friends of passengers and crew have been told not to panic.
Hopefully, the plane would be found.
This brings memories of Malaysian Airline MH370 which disappeared in 2014 and has not been found since.
One wonders how a plane would just disappear without trace from the skies just like that in 2016! With all the technological advancements in the world.
