    An Egypt Air flight on its way to Cairo from Paris went off radar Wednesday night, according to a tweet from the airline and from a journalist.

    "An informed source at Egyptair stated that Flight no MS804, which departed Paris at 23:09 (CEST), heading to Cairo has disappeared from radar," the tweet read.

    The airline said it would provide more details as they become available.

    Here we go.

    The plane was travelling at 37,000 feet when it disappeared from radar.
    Sounds to me like it was either blown to bits, beamed up by the alien mothership or someone put it in stealth mode.

    An EgyptAir flight on its way to Cairo from Paris disappeared from radar Wednesday night, according to a tweet from the airline.

    "An informed source at Egyptair stated that Flight no MS804, which departed Paris at 23:09 (CEST), heading to Cairo has disappeared from radar," the tweet read.

    There were 59 passengers on board the Airbus and 10 crew members, according to the airline's Twitter feed. The aircraft disappeared after entering Egyptian airspace, according to EgyptAir.

    The three-and-a-half hour flight left at 11:21 p.m. Paris time, more than half an hour after its scheduled departure of 10:45 p.m., according to the Flight Aware website. It was expected to arrive in Cairo at 2:55 a.m., 15 minutes after its scheduled arrival of 2:40 a.m., according to Flight Aware.

    The airline said it would provide more details as they become available.

    Back in March, EgyptAir Flight 181 en route to Cyprus was hijacked by a passenger claiming to be wearing a suicide belt. The hijacker surrendered at Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus and all passengers were released safely. No one was hurt in the incident, which Cypriot authorities said was not terrorism related.

    EgyptAir flight MS804 heading from Paris to Cairo has disappeared from radar with 63 people on board.
    The Airbus A320 left the French capital's Charles De Gaulle Airport at 11:09pm local time on Wednesday night and then went missing, three hours and 40 minutes into its journey.

    The plane vanished 10 minutes into Egyptian airspace over the Mediterranean Sea, 20 minutes before it was due to land.
    It was supposed touch down at 3:05am local time. There were 56 passengers, including two infants and a child, and 10 crew on the flight.

    The airline tweeted: 'An informed source at EGYPTAIR stated that Flight no MS804,which departed Paris at 23:09 (CEST),heading to Cairo has disappeared from radar.'

    They added that the plane disappeared 10 miles into Egyptian airspace at 37,000ft.






    The airline said it was fading when air traffic control lost contact with the plane at 02:45 Cairo time.

    Egyptian officials have already sent out search and rescue teams.
    As the plane was in Egyptian airspace, their air traffic controllers should have been in contact with the flight team.

    However it does not necessarily mean the plane was over land at the time, as Egyptian air space stretches over the Mediterranean Sea.
    According to flight schedules, it was the plane's fifth flight of the day.

    Shortly after news of the disappearance broke, the Egyptair website crashed.
    The Airbus A320 is a short-to-mid range aircraft is one of the most commonly used in the world that first entered circulation in 1986.

    The airline revealed that the flight had gone missing after posting this Tweet early on Thursday morning
    They then confirmed that the flight lost contact with air traffic controllers 10 miles inside Egyptian airspace

    Uhoh, tin foil hats on boys, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
    EgyptAir says that the plane’s emergency devices (possibly an emergency locator transmitter or beacon) sent a distress signal that was received at 4.26am, some two hours after the previously stated last radar contact.

    ^ Reports of a ball of flame seen in the sky suggest otherwise.

    Meaning it could be a thousand miles away in any direction from the last radar contact?

    Hmmm the "getting his own back theory" eh?

    He doesn't give a shit, if he wanted one down he'd just fire a missile at it.

    No, meaning they picked up "possibly an emergency locator transmitter or beacon" some two hours after the last radar contact.

    If it hit the drink, the locator beacons will have started.

    Shouldn't take too long to find if they've already got an ELT signal.

    Sky are reporting that the Egyptian military picked up an "automated distress signal" 90 minutes after the last contact and that search teams have been deployed.

    So just waiting for ships to get on site then?

    There is an unconfirmed report that the plane crashed in the Mediterranean 130 miles from the Greek island of Karpathos. AFP’s Jean-Marc Mojon cites a Greek aviation source for the report.
