A single unitary authority for urban Dorset
In the pilot's last communication, with Greek authorities in Greek air space, there was no mention of any problems and the flight was proceeding as expected. Just 2 minutes after leaving Greek airspace it vanished.

Egypt military denies distress signal received
Posted at08:24


In the past hour, EgyptAir said on its Twitter account that a distress signal had been received by Egypt's military from flight MS804 (though it is unclear whether they meant an automated signal or a manual one).

Now, Egypt's military, in a statement, says no such signal was received.

Hmm...

Pilot had 6,000 hours flight time and was making his 5th flight of the day. Crew on board a nearby ship of the crash site desribed "a ball of fire' in the sky.

2 Iraqiis on board the aircraft.. Is it wrong to assume that could be significant?

Only other nationalities were French (15), Egyptian (30) then 1 Brit, Belgian, Kuwait and Saudi.

At the moment yes. Not confirmed as a terrorist attack, could be a mechanical fault of some sort.

I've not checked news agency's myself but someone in the office has just said the plane has been found crashed in Greece?

There seems to be conflicting reports surrounding everything about it at the minute but definitely with regards to whether any distress calls were sent from the plane at any point. You'd think that if it was a mechanical fault, the pilots would report to ATC unless of course it is such a catastrophic fault that gave them no time

Mate. It'd be very, very wrong to assume that, yes.

The Greeks are denying that any wreckage has been found.

I suppose the smoke detectors going off (apparently) and an apparent explosion could be linked together
