FBI Confirms No Terrorist Attack
In the U.S., the FBI offered its assistance in the investigation. FBI Director James Comey said the bureau has no evidence yet that the plane was brought down intentionally.That leaves the Pilot and co-pilot as prime suspects in deliberately downing the plane:
The jetliner, an Airbus A320, departed Paris at 11:09 p.m. on Wednesday. The pilot spoke to Greek air traffic controllers at 2:26 a.m. and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, officials said. Three or four minutes later, the plane made its last normal radar contact.
At 2:37 a.m., shortly after entering Egyptian airspace, the plane made a 90-degree turn to the left and then a full circle to the right, first plunging to 15,000 feet from 37,000 feet and then to 9,000 feet. At that point it disappeared from radar, the Greek defense minister, Panos Kammenos, said at a news conference on Thursday afternoon. NYTThe Pilot Captain Mohamed Shokeir:
Egypt's state-run al-Ahram newspaper identified the pilot as Captain Mohamed Shokeir. EgyptAir said he had had 6,275 hours of flying experience, including 2,101 hours on the A320, while the first officer had had 2,766 hours.The co-pilot Mohammad Mamdouh Assem:
All EgyptAir Flight 804 Pilot Wanted Was to Fly
Mohammad Mamdouh Assem, whose plane crashed into the Mediterranean early Thursday, had dreamed of being a pilot since he was 5. Friends remember him and the other victims. For EgyptAir Flight 804 co-pilot Mohammad Mamdouh Assem, becoming a pilot was a lifelong dream. His father works as a flight crew member for the same airline, whose plane carrying 66 people crashed early Thursday 170 miles off the coast of Egypt, in what U.S. officials are saying was likely a terrorist bombing. Assem grew up looking up to his dad. “He wanted to be a pilot since he was 5,” childhood friend Omar Nasef told The Daily Beast. “He was an unbelievable person, social.” Assem’s mother, Mona, taught at Nasef’s primary school in Cairo but passed away from cancer a few years ago. When Nasef connected with Assem’s father in New York a few months ago, he said the family was still reeling from that loss. “His mom put all her savings towards his education,” Nasef said. “The academy and all that, and it’s very expensive in Egypt. That was a big sacrifice.” “All that I know is that he loved flying,” Nasef added. “That was his dream job and that’s it.” Daily Beast
