It's a confirmed crash, I saw the press conference. An Egyptian AC-130 claims to have found the wreck. Neither French or Egyptian officals rule out a terror attack. This is the 12'th incident with the Airbus A320 since 1988.

I bet it's ISIS.

I haven't seen the latest news since this morning. No

Unless you expect perfection (unrealistic) - you really can't fault the aircraft.

For all the attention the A320 has gotten lately, with high profile cases (and likely at least one, done intentionally by the pilot -- in which case you can't fault the aircraft) --it's still rated as the 6th safest flying.... And part of that statistic is some planes that are much less in numbers in the air fleet - with no accidents at all.....

I wouldn't worry too much, thousands of other planes traveled safely to and from the same area at the same time. Very rare for someone to be in an incident like that.

I know the risk is low, but I'm always a bit nervous when he's on a plane, so my jitters have increased.

It's understandable

Greek officials now saying no wreckage has been found, the earlier debris has not come from a plane based on current analysis.

After this I'm sure security will be tightened so Egyptair will probably be very safe to fly with.

Yeah. I'm keen to see the pyramids anyway, we fly into Cairo in the morning so hopefully will be able to see them from the air. So any terrorists need to do their thing on the London leg. 'Cos I will *not* be impressed if I don't get to see the pyramids.

RE: Egyptair flight from Paris to Cairo crashes
CNN and others reporting the wreckage has been found and validated.

Oh, and the head of the Egyptian civil aviation ministry said it is more likely to have a terrorist attack bring down a plane than a mechanical failure. I call bullshit. Regardless of the cause here, h
There are dramatically more crashes due to mechanical issues than terror.

Claims that it was a false flag incident in 3, 2, 1....

It still amazes me that we can lose track of something as big and important as a commercial passenger airplane with modern tracking technologies.

Systems fail, failsafes malfunction. Probability of infallibility is probably close to zero.

EDIT: Also, the pre-flight checkup is occasionaly somewhat half-assed.
