It is blown up, there would have been some communication otherwise, as it was at altitude

It made it almost all the way to Cairo, must have been in descent.

Sorry, I was just being silly.

The original report was that the plane was 80 K from Egypt/Cairo. The update said that the plane was 10 K into Egyptian air space.

"Edit: plane disappeared after going to the Egyptian airspace 10 miles" - google translate.

10 Km or 10 miles. ??

As it is probably spread over 50 square miles, it does not make a difference.

It seems it is being confirmed it crashed into the Mediterranean sea.

Aviation officials: EgyptAir plane carrying 66 has crashed

[MAGGIE MICHAEL]
May 19, 2016

CAIRO (AP) — An EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo with 66 passengers and crew on board crashed in the Mediterranean Sea early Thursday morning, Egyptian aviation officials said.

EgyptAir Flight 804 was lost from radar at 2:45 a.m. local time when it was flying at 37,000 feet, the airline said. It said the Airbus A320 had vanished 10 miles (16 kilometers) after it entered Egyptian airspace, around 280km (175 miles) off the country's coastline north of the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria.

The aviation officials later said the plane crashed and that a search for debris was now underway. The "possibility that the plane crashed has been confirmed," as the plane hasn't landed in any of the nearby airports, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The official said a signal had been picked up from the plane two hours after it disappeared from radar, thought to have been an emergency beacon.
