Too early to judge Egyptian plane crash: Investigators

Cairo, May 22 (IANS) The Egyptian investigation committee said on Saturday that it’s “too early” to make judgments over the reason behind the recent EgyptAir plane crash.

“We are looking at all information that is collected, but it is far too early to make judgment or decision based on a single source of information,” the Egyptian Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said in the report.


EgyptAir Flight MS804, an Airbus A320, disappeared from radar screens early Thursday en route from Paris to Cairo with 66 people on board, including 30 Egyptians and 15 French.

The Egyptian investigators said they gathered information including data from the plane AIRMAN analysis system and ACARS communication and reporting system.

“The investigation process involves multiple technical specialists, representing many parties, multiple national agencies and international governments,” the committee pointed out, noting the investigation process is governed by the Egyptian law and the regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

French Aviation Agency said Saturday that the passenger jet had transmitted automatic messages indicating smoke in the cabin, yet investigators and analysts believe this does not tell what happened for sure.

On Friday, the Egyptian armed forces said it found some personal belongings of the victims and parts of the plane wreckage in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Egyptian Civil Aviation Ministry said in addition to the passengers’ belongings, the army had also found human remains and airplane’s seats.

The search operations by the Egyptian army and the navy are still going on, it added.
