We mentioned in our earlier coverage that EgyptAir and Egyptian aviation authorities suggested that the wreckage of missing plane MS804had been foundafter its disappearance over the Mediterranean Sea, but that Greece was skeptical and thought they had jumped the gun. Well, the Greek authorities were right – the plane’s still missing.
They “stand corrected” on this one. The wreckage in question appears to have been some lifejackets, but without distinctive markings or designs which would indicate that it came from an EgyptAir flight.
In other news, U.S. officials have reported that a review of imagery from the EgyptAir flight does not indicate any kind of explosion, contrary to some speculation that the erratic movements and sudden disappearance of the plane suggested a detonation of some description.
