Egyptair Cabin

Tue Nov 16, 1999 7:31 pm

Is it possible to find the cabin of Egyptair entire? If I understood everything, the plane dived down, went up and, due to the G-pressure, broke in pieces (certainly wings and so on) but it is possible that the cabin could have remained entire with the passengers in it? And if yes, why didn't the navy find it?

It might be laying too deep in seabed. Also, the fuselage could have broken up into smaller pieces on impact with the ocean. And the smaller the pieces, the more likely the chance that strong oceanic currents scattered them over quite a large area that might take months to collect.

As people say, that's just my USD 0.02.

Two Cents

Tue Nov 16, 1999 8:05 pm

Oh, what I meant by USD 0.02 was just "my two cents" - it's an expression common in US when u put a little contribution to something. Cent is a coin 1/100 of US Dollar.

The reason I put it "USD" coz I'm in UK and keyboard layout has a slightly different configuration which means if I put a dollar sign it might have displayed by some another symbol... thus I used the international code for the currency, which is USD for US Dollar. FRF is French Frank, by the way...

From what has been said about the speed at which the EgyptAir 767 hit the ocean, it fragmented into small pieces, much like Swissair 111. It is unlikely that any large pieces of the plane remained intact. It has also been said the recovery of the victims is going to be a slow, painstaking process because their bodies are likely badly fragmented as well.
