Was this due to EMP? [and from another] http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3598117/EgyptAir-flight-MS8...
The Airbus A320 left the French capital's Charles De Gaulle Airport at 9.09pm GMT last night before coming down off the Greek island of Karpathos ten miles into Egyptian airspace at around 00.30am. Officials said there was no distress call. A captain on board a merchant ship in the Mediterranean reported seeing a 'flame in the sky'. Greek air traffic controllers said they spoke to the pilot while over Greece and did not report any problems. The plane then disappeared 10 miles into Egyptian airspace while travelling at 37,000ft. The airline said the aircraft was 'fading' when air traffic control lost contact with the plane. Initial reports suggested the plane had not sent out a mayday call.
What is known is that MS804 was being flown by experienced pilots, in clear weather, and had not reported any mechanical problems nor issued any distress signals. The plane went down suddenly, with a shipping vessel reportedly seeing a flaming object in the skies at that location, and swerved to the left, then to the right as it disappeared from radar. Though the location is on the African Plate border, in fact precisely on the plate border, all indications are that a bomb took the plane out. How else to explain the lack of a distress signal and the reports of a flaming object?
An Electro-Magnetic Pulse can take everything out, interfering with all electrical activity in its path. The radio equipment, the jet engines, the ability of the pilots to maneuver the aircraft – all are stopped dead. Explosions happen when the jet engines have fuel aflame that cannot vent, as the jet blades are stopped. Explosions in first this and then that side of the plane will cause the swerve observed on radar. This will, of course, be blamed on a bomb, as the airline industry will not allow discussion of EMP to dampen their profits.
