EgyptAir flight MS804, an Airbus A320 impacted the Mediterranean Sea some 200 km north of the Egyptian coast line.
The aircraft, an Airbus A320, departed Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, France, at 23:21 hours local time on May 18. Scheduled departure time was 22:45 hours.
Last contact with the flight was at FL370, about 02:29 hours. Flight tracking data from Flightradar24 suggests the aircraft had just entered the Cairo FIR via the KUMBI waypoint and was about 10 miles inside Egyptian airspace when contact was lost.
About 19:00 hours local time EgyptAir confirmed that pieces of wreckage were found at sea.
Greek military authorities earlier reported that their primary radar showed the aircraft suddenly taking a 90 degree turn left, followed by a 360 degrees turn in the opposite direction as it descended from FL370 to FL150 before disappearing off radars.

The Flight Data Recorder and Cockpit Voice Recorder with both recovered from the sea bed on June 16, 2016. Analysis of the FDR showed that the recording stopped at FL370.
On June 29 investigators reported that some recovered wreckage parts of the front section of the airplane showed signs of high temperature damage and soot.
On December 15, 2016, investigators reported that traces of explosives were found on several victims.
