Athens (AFP) - The head of the Greek air safety authority on Thursday told AFP that wreckage found in the Mediterranean close to where an EgyptAir passenger jet is thought to have crashed "does not come from a plane". "Up to now the analysis of the debris indicates that it does not come from a plane, my Egyptian counterpart also confirmed to me that it was not yet proven that the debris came from the EgyptAir flight when we were last in contact around 1745 GMT," Athanasios Binis told AFP. His words contradicted an earlier claim by EgyptAir on Twitter, which said Egyptian officials had confirmed that debris found near the Greek island of Karpathos came from the ill-fated flight, along with floating "life jackets and plastic material". "What was found was a piece of wood, and some materials that do not come from a plane," said Binis of the Greek Air Accident Investigation and Aviation Safety Board.

Oh please, we all know it was just as likely to have been Christians angry over the new transgender bathroom rules.
I mean, they caused the Crusades and used to burn witches and stuff. We know they're capable.

a reply to: carewemust It all depends on where the damage is done. Take out a load bearing structure and the plane will disintegrate in flight. A good example is the Hawaiian Airline flight years ago that lost part of its fuselage. Had the damage been done to the belly instead of the overhead, the plane would have broken in two.
