The Egyptians refused to accept the NTSB report, which blamed the relief pilot and said he committed suicide. They did their own investigation and said that the different control movements were a result of a mechanical problem, not the pilots fighting each other for control. It was a CYA report, not an actual accident report because of the pilot on board at the time.

Data also came from radar stations along the coast which tracked the aircraft almost until impact. The primary radar which saw it only saw one return, until the went below where it could see. That means it was intact up until that point.

It's roughly 409 miles per hour.

Yes, as Zaphod says, 36,000 fpm is 409 mph. Here's a useful site:
Convert Units (dot) com.

I've set it up for the fpm to mph conversion page, but if you go to the home page there, you can use it for all kinds of other conversions as well. Just type in what you want in the on-site search box.
