Doomed EgyptAir Cockpit Window Reportedly Opened
Something sudden and catastrophic happened. That's what data transmitted from Thursday's Paris-to-Cairo Flight MS804 indicates, according to an aviation website. Before the Airbus A320 made two sharp turns and plummeted from 37,000, a cockpit window opened and multiple systems, including flight controls, failed. Experts speculate that a technical failure or explosion - or even a suicidal pilot - could have precipitated those failures. Some remains of the 66 passengers and crew have been recovered, but the biggest parts of the plane, along with flight recorders, remain to be found in Mediterranean waters between Crete and Egypt.
