Egyptair Flight From Paris to Cairo Vanishes From Radar With 69 Aboard

by ALEX JOHNSON, CHARLENE GUBASH and PHIL HELSEL

An Egyptair flight from Paris to Cairo, Egypt, disappeared from radar late Wednesday night with 69 people on board, the airline said.

Flight MS804, an Airbus A320, departed Charles de Gaulle Airport at 11:09 p.m. Paris time. It was at nearly 37,000 feet when it disappeared about 2:45 a.m. Cairo time (8:45 p.m. ET) about 10 miles into Egyptian airspace, Egyptair said.

There was no immediate indication what might have happened to the plane, but Egyptian authorities told NBC News that search operations were under way over the Mediterranean Sea.

In March, an EgyptAir flight from Alexandria, Egypt, to Cairo was hijacked by a man claiming to have an explosive belt strapped to his body. The aircraft was diverted to Cyprus, and the belt was later deemed to be a fake.

Authorities said the hijacker demanded to speak to his ex-wife or to have a letter delivered to her. He later demanded asylum, a Cyprus government spokesman said.

Update:

An EgyptAir plane has crashed in the Mediterranean after it vanished from radar in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The plane had been flying from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris to Cairo and reportedly set off a distress signal roughly ten miles into Egyptian airspace

There were 56 passengers and 10 crew members onboard

A Greek airport source has told news agency AFP that they believe the plane crashed off the island of Karpathos.

French security officials say they "cannot rule out the possibility of a terror attack."

How awful!

So sad. There were 6 kids and 1 or two babies too I think. If this is terrorism... :(

Egypt has taken major hits, tourism is suffering, it's unfair as the people are lovely and rely on tourism.
