EgyptAir crash - Fears Mount Over European Air Security
« on: May 23, 2016, 01:19:10 AM »

Security at European airports is coming under urgent scrutiny as mystery continues to surround the cause of the EgyptAir crash. While it isnít clear what caused Flight 804 to drop out of the sky and smash into the Mediterranean, the history of security lapses at all the airports the plane visited that day is heightening suspicions terrorism was behind the crash.

Aviation experts also note there was no distress broadcast by the pilot while the plane was twisting and veering, which is adding to the suspicions of a terrorist plot just two months after deadly attacks at Belgiumís Zaventem airport.

The Zaventem attacks were carried out on the ground, in a passenger terminal, but if Flight 804 was brought down by a bomb, aviation experts and government officials say the most likely explanation is that a device was put on board by a worker at one of the four airports the plane visited that day.

Terrorism is not the only possible cause for the crash. Aviation experts caution that a catastrophic mechanical failure or pilot error could have brought down the airliner. 

While there can be no definitive explanation of what happened until the cockpit voice-recorder is recovered from the Mediterranean Sea ó and that could take weeks, or even months ó European security officials are not wasting time.

At Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, where the Airbus 320 took off for its final journey, security arrangements are already under review with attention being focused on the nearly 90,000 airport staff, including baggage handlers and aircraft ground crew.
