UPDATE: Egyptair Flight MS804 : ACARS Data Shows Blown Out Windows in Cockpit – Shades of Flight MH17?

UPDATE: True to form, disinfo website Prison Planet, is pushing the “ebil Moooslims did it!” story-line.

Turns out, Egyptair Flight MS804’s flight path took them right through the area they were holding the Phoenix Express 2016 joint naval drills in the Mediterranean Sea.

This year’s exercise control group will be hosted at the NATO Maritime Interdiction Operations Training Center (NMIOTC) located in Souda Bay, Greece, but training will take place throughout the Mediterranean to include North African nations’ territorial waters.” Navy.mil

Here’s a map showing the last recorded position of Flight MS804 in relation to key points of Phoenix Express 2016 drill locations.

Since my map doesn’t do the official airspace divisions  any justice, here’s a professional version from FlightRadar24.

That looks a little more official, doesn’t it?

Truth is, we still don’t know what happened to this airliner and speculation does no one any good. But, I think when information this critical is available, we need to report on it. Especially when you consider the nature of the drills themselves.

This was an Africom operation with a number of North African military officials taking leadership positions in the drills.

UPDATE: EgyptAir Flight MS804 Flew Right Through Phoenix Express 2016 Naval Exercises

UPDATE: The naval drills were taking place between Greece and territorial waters of “North African nations”

UPDATE: Greek authorities say the plane made sudden swerving movements just before it disappeared (as if they were trying to avoid something)

EgyptAir Flight MS804 on route from Paris to Cairo, disappeared off radar over the Mediterranean Sea early this morning at a cruising altitude of 37,000. It had just passed through Greek airspace and was in Egyptian airspace for 3 minutes before it vanished from radar. Weather conditions were clear. Sixty-six people were on board. 56 passengers and 10 crew members.

The captain of a merchant vessel reported seeing something burning in the sky at that location.

“The AFP news agency reports confirmation from a Greek aviation source that the EgyptAir plane crashed off the island of Karpathos. The captain of a merchant ship in the area had reported seeing a ‘flame’ in the sky and marine traffic monitors showed civilian vessels joining a search in the area.” Guardian

The area where the plane disappeared is heavily traveled by both air and sea traffic. Greek officials are investigating the reports from the Greek merchant vessel that said the explosion “lit up the sky”

I cannot but help to remember the two guided missile destroyers conducting drills in the South China Sea when Flight 370 was seen “burning in the sky” or the Israeli air combat drills taking place when Metrojet Flight 9268 blew up midair. I guess that’s because there are naval drills (Phoenix Express 2016) taking place in the Med. Sea from May 17 -27 and of course, they include guided missile destroyers.
