I don't know, but the incident with Egyptair which crashed on the flight from JFK to CAI came in to my mind after hearing all the stories of the recent terrorist attacks.
Does anybody of you think, there could be a link to the latest events?

There is a lot of 'thinking' going on these days. I have decided to stay with the facts, and fact is (for now) that four airplanes was hijacked in the US on September 11. The fate we all know. The rest is just speculations.

Sr176,

Please could you provide your source for the fact that "Egyptair Crash Linked To Events Of The Sept 11"

As far as I know, no such link has been made (apart from by you).

Regards

Sr176,
Do you think Sept 11 had anything to do with the missing Navy squadron of flights in the Bermuda Triangle?

Capt. Picard,
I can't say with any authority where Sr176 has sourced his information from but the link between Sept 11th and the EgyptAir crash has already been made and published.Try and pick up a copy of the latest issue of Private Eye and turn to page 4.I won't go into any more detail at this stage as I'm not at all convinced by what is printed-other than to say that the implication is that there was no crash and it's all a big cover up etc etc.I
I have been impressed by the Eye's sterling work in trying to expose the scandalous Lockerbie investigation but I'm dissappointed to read what has been printed in respect of the Egyptair/Sept 11th situation as it appears to be nothing more than hearsay.

I think Sr176 probably meant to title his topic "Egyptair crash linked to events of Sept 11 ?" with the emphasis on the '?' rather than the actual title used, which sounds like a statement.

APP --I think Sr176 probably meant to title his topic .... with the emphasis on the '?'

Yeah I'd've preferred to see that too. I mean it's possible that Al-Batouty at the controls the final moments of the Egyptair flight did bring the plane down intentionally and might've even figured "Aw I don't like America --or New York particularly-- let them have to deal with the mess from all this.." but, to me Sept. 11's aftermath is horrific and complicated, just on its own.

if the egypt air crash was related to terrorism, then we would have known about it. Terrirists hyjack airplanes to get a point across, not to keep it secret.

The only way this could be related is if the terrerists tryed to take over the plane (like what happend on 9-11) but the pilot struggle caused a crash (like the united 757 in pensylvania or whatever).

who here has studyed the cockpit voice recording of this flight to prove if there was a struggle in teh cockpit?

Not necessarily. To date, no one has taken credit for the WTC disaster.

Instead, the US has implicated bin Laden through its own investigation.

D L X: Nobody has taken credit, you're right... but it's MORE than obvious that this was a terrorist act. The hijacking and deliberate downing of a commercial airliner (in this discussion, Flight 990) isn't something that would go on quietly. Terrorists don't tend to do things quietly. Nobody takes responsibility, but it's often well known if it were a terrorist attack or not.

Flight Recorders would've proved this long ago.

You can't go out and suddenly link all suspicious events to terrorism after such an event. Were the terrorists responsible for TWA800? VJ592? My keys being lost? My Air Miles Card being mysteriously wiped of all it's points (I'm REALLY mad about that one)? Probably not.

If so, I want my f*cking keys back.

YES,

now that u brought it up, it is very possible that Egypt Air may have been hijacked. There was a struggle for controls in the flt deck of that acft. It is possible that a highjacker/s may struggled with the pilots in the flt deck causing the airliner to crash!!! U brought up a very good point, I hope they investigate further.

due to the trageic events 2 weeks ago, it kinda opens up the egyptair crash mystery again..if the pilot pushed it down, who knows it could have been a terrorist "sleeper"....maybe islamic jihad or al-quida could have played a roll. If i recall the plane had some top officers from the egyptian air force on it.
also, TWA 800, that kinda opens speculation again..terrorists firing a missle or placed a bomb on board?


what a mystery!!!
all the best

hello... as far as i know, there hasn't been an official conclussion that Egypair flight was crashed in purpose. It has been said it was due to a failure in the airplane also. if I'm wrong, please let me know, cause i also read that the Egypt government and the pilot's family have already sued the FBI for taking conclussions based on a prayer that was said in the cockpit.
Remember that the next s/n 767 (Lauda Air) crashed due to a reverse deployment... both aircraft were built in the middle of a Boeing strike.
regards MX727

I do not see why anyone should rule out this theory. Who knows maybe the first officer was working for a terrorist organization. Maybe thats what the references to Allah were as the plane was spiraling. If so, the airline would keep that quiet in fear of loosig revenue. Wasn't it mentioned that the first officer made some sort phone call from the airport in New York? I think your theory is not stupid and you can bet the authorities have already thought of the same thing. Cheers

Then again - who WOULDN'T pray in those circumstances. I think even I would, and I'm not religious! (Unless there was something fishy about the WAY he/they prayed)

Speculation (not that I believe it) so far has been that Al-Batouty was planning to dive the plane and crash it somewhere on land, not unlike what happend 9/11.

What if EgyptAir plane was supposed to hit the towers? It took off from NY, and sank somewhere close to Boston.
