Shocking reports have confirmed the real cause behind the Egypt Air plane crash that reportedly killed all 66 people on board.
According to reports from local media outlets, the plane came down due to the pilot’s own irresponsible actions which included lighting up a cigarette mid-flight in the cockpit.
The plane came down at a fast pace after a fire had begun in the cockpit, confirmed a recent investigative report.
Flight MS804 was on its way in 2016 from Paris to Cairo but little did the passengers know about the doomed incident that claimed the lives of so many innocent people.
After taking off from Paris International Airport, the plane soon came down or as reports claim, ‘fell from the sky’. The exact location delineated was said to be between the northern part of Egypt and the Greek Island of Crete.
Families of the victims are yet to receive news on the cause of the crash until today, leaving many horrified at the actions of one man who took away the lives of so many due to his senseless behavior.
The pilot was identified as Said Shoukair whose lighting of the cigarette in the cockpit resulted in an oxygen leak from the emergency mask compartment.
Surprisingly, authorities in Egypt had referred to the incident as a likely terrorist attack as they found traces of explosives. However, those findings have been ruled out.
In 2018, a breakthrough from France’s investigatory team concluded that the plane came down due to a fire on board. But investigators failed to delineate the exact cause of the crash.
Now, authorities have released a final report that took into all sorts of evidence found, including the Black Box recording that was found near a Greek Island. This showed a clear hissing sound from the pilot’s mask of oxygen leaking, leading to the final conclusion.
