Another plane gone missing

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Why? Again, if every airline that had its license pulled after a crash, there would be no airlines left.
A Shit company is a shit company.

Includes airlines too.

Egyptair crash: no trace of explosives on victims, says French newspaper
Reuters
Saturday 6 May 2017 03.45 BST
French investigators have found no traces of explosives on the bodies of French victims of Egyptair flight MS804 that crashed into the Mediterranean last year en route from Paris to Cairo, a newspaper has reported.
Le Figaro’s report, which a source with knowledge of the matter confirmed to Reuters, contradicts Egyptian investigators who said in December that traces of explosives were found in the remains of victims of the flight.

Investigators of France’s National Gendarmerie Criminal Investigation Institute, who examined samples of the remains, concluded there were no traces of explosives on the bodies of the passengers, Le Figaro reported.
“The thesis put forward by the Egyptians – an explosion during the flight due to a bomb that may have been placed on board at Roissy airport in Paris – is therefore excluded,” Le Figaro said...

So a year on, despite having both black boxes and the plane's debris, they still have no idea? Perhaps you're right, hanno.

Easy to tell if it was a suicide if you have the flight data and voice recorders though.

"At this stage, the combustion or self-combustion of a tablet in the cockpit is the working hypothesis," the source said, but "elements" needed to prove it - such as debris from "the cabin or flight recorders ... which are in Egypt and the Egyptians have not shown a great willingness to collaborate".

Seems to be a bit of a cover-up by the Egyptian government happening here.
