EgyptAir Flight 804, Airbus A320 jetliner, disappeared from radar on Thursday morning, traveling to Cairo from Paris, leading to a major search for the plane and its wreckage.
Brig. Gen. Mohammed Samir, Egyptian Army spokesman stated in a statement posted on his Facebook page on Friday that “personal belongings of the passengers” and plane debris were found by military planes and ships.
President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt has expressed his condolences to the families of victims. He issued a statement via his office, “with utmost sadness and regret mourns the victims on aboard the EgyptAir flight who were killed.”
More details have begun to emerge about the passengers on the flight.
Samar Ezz Eldin, an air hostess on EgyptAir flight MS804 eerily shared a picture on her Facebook page of a plane crashing into the sea.
Samar, 27, had put up the image in September 2014, only four months after she began working at Egypt’s national carrier.
Samar, graduate of modern languages at the Ain Shams University in Cairo, was among the first to be named as tragic victims of the Airbus A320.
Egyptian army have today claimed to have discovered wreckage and personal items of the deceased passengers from the missing jet.
As search continues, heartbreaking details are being revealed about the victims who were on board including the captain who had just celebrated his promotion four days earlier. Also, the co-pilot whose family sacrificed everything so he could go to aviation school and a lady that was a former TV actress turned cabin manager.
