Egypt Airlines had a "Ghost flight"

Egypt Airlines had a "Ghost flight"
An Air Egypt plane has gone missing while it was travelling from Paris to Cairo. The flight had 66 people on board, which were 56 passengers with 10 crew members.

EgyptAir is the flag carrier airline of Egypt. The airline is based at Cairo International Airport. The Air Egypt plane was founded on 7th June 1932, which was 83 years ago as Misr Airlines. It commenced in July 1933.

The Airline was a regularly scheduled flight that stopped at John .F. Kennedy International Airport, New York City. Unfortunately on the 31st of October 1999, the Boeing 767 operating the route and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. Which was about 60 miles south of the Nantucket Islands, Massachusetts. The Plane crash killed all 217 Passengers on board the plane.

Egypt's state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram published on Tuesday a Scan of the log on its website. The paper said " EgyptAir flight MS 804 transmitted 11 electronic messages starting at 21.09 GMT on 18 May, about three and a half hours before disappearing from radar screens with 56 passengers and 10 crew on board".

The first two messages showed that the engines were functional. The third message came at 00.26 GMT on 19 May and showed a rise in the temperature of the co-pilot's window. The plane kept transmitting messages for the next three minutes before vanishing, Al-Ahram said.

Good Advice for anyone travelling overseas is that hopefully you reach your destination without any trouble and return home safely without any trouble.
