EgyptAir Update: Body Parts, Debris Found in the Mediterranean

Early Friday morning, search crews came across body parts, luggage, wreckage, and possibly an oil-slick, which could be a sign that the wreckage does in fact belong to missing EgyptAir Flight 804, which disappeared a day earlier.

The news comes about 12 hours after the airline announced it had found debris, but it later determined did not belong to the missing aircraft.  Now, EgyptAir has tweeted an update on the possible wreckage and human remains, which was discovered earlier today by the Egyptian Military and Marines.

It seems very possible that this could be the wreckage of the missing flight.  The original find yesterday was only debris, but given that luggage and bodies have been discovered, it increases the likelihood this relates to the EgyptAir flight.

Background on the Missing Flight (BBC):

“The search in seas south of the Greek island of Karpathos involves Greek and Egyptian naval forces, and the British Royal Air Force.

Sixty-six people were on board Flight MS804, most of them from Egypt and France. A Briton was among the passengers.

Of those on the plane, 56 were passengers, seven were crew members and three were security personnel.

Relatives of some of those on board are being flown from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport to Cairo.

Flight MS804 left Charles de Gaulle at 23:09 local time on Wednesday (21:09 GMT) and was scheduled to arrive in the Egyptian capital soon after 03:15 local time on Thursday.”
