An Egypt Air plane has vanished after authorities say that it was almost certainly a terrorist attack from ISIS. When is the world going to come together to stop this? Read the horrifying details of what happened to the plane before it went off the radar:

Debris has been found in the search for the EgyptAir plane that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea with 66 people on board after the jet went into a sudden spin and plunged 22,000ft before vanishing off the radar.

Flight MS804 disappeared near the Greek island of Karpathos, ten miles into Egyptian airspace at around 00.30am GMT, without making a distress call.

A Greek frigate discovered two large plastic floating objects in the sea around 230 miles south of the island of Crete, Greek defence sources said.

The two objects appeared to be pieces of plastic in white and red and spotted close to an area where a transponder signal had been emitted.

Earlier, Greek defence minister Panos Kammenos said the Airbus A320 made ‘sudden swerves’ in mid-air, lurching 90 degrees to the left then 360 degrees to the right as it fell out of the sky.

He said the plane dropped from 37,000 feet to 15,000ft before the signal was lost at around 10,000 feet.

The revelation came after a former air accident chief said all the evidence was pointed to the plane being targeted in a terrorist attack.

Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathi also said the possibility of a terror attack was a ‘stronger’ possibility than technical failure.

The head of Russia’s top domestic security agency, Alexander Bortnikov, also claimed it was ‘in all likelihood it was a terror attack’.

The 56 passengers on board included one Briton, 30 Egyptians, 15 French, one Belgian, one Iraqi, one Kuwaiti, one Saudi Arabian, one Chadian, one Portuguese, one Algerian and one Canadian. There were 10 crew members including three security guards.

Donald Trump commented on the attack, saying ‘When will we get tough, smart and vigilant?’ Do you agree with him?

Donald Trump commented on the EgyptAir flight the crashed into the Mediterranean Sea while travelling from Paris to Cairo on Twitter early Thursday morning.

‘Looks like yet another terrorist attack. Airplane departed from Paris. When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!’ wrote Trump.

EgyptAir flight MS804 disappeared sometime around 2:30am Thursday after leaving Paris at 11:09pm local time on Wednesday night. Paris and Cairo are in the same time zone.

There were 66 people on board the plane – 56 passengers and 10 crew members. Three of those passengers were children.

French president Francois Hollande confirmed the crash on Thursday, saying; ‘When we have the truth we need to draw all the conclusions.’

He then added; ‘At this stage, we must give priority to solidarity to the families [of the victims.’

Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos said the plane began making odd movements shortly after it entered Egyptian airspace on Thursday.

This attack follows another crash that recently killed 224 passengers on another Egypt Air flight in March:

After a decade of political turmoil and the downing of a holiday jet last year, tourism in Egypt was left in a desperate state – so will the MS804 tragedy sound the death knell for the industry?

Figures from February this year show that visitor numbers to Egypt practically halved and the average number of nights spent in the country is down by 67.2 per cent compared to 2015.

The country’s tourism industry, says one expert, is now one disaster away from being finished altogether.

Dr Yeganeh Morakabati, from Bournemouth University, who specialises in the perception of risk in the context of catastrophic national and global events, told MailOnline Travel: ‘It was and it still is crucial for the Egyptians to not let any other events occur as it would be fatal to what is left of their tourism industry.

‘Sadly, this latest event comes shortly after EgyptAir was subject to a hijack on 29th March and they were already trying to recover from the events related to the Russian charter flight that was blown up in November 2015.

French intelligence officials also warned Egypt about the risk of this terrorist attack from ISIS happening a week prior:

The head of France’s internal intelligence agency had warned the country was being ‘clearly targeted’ by ISIS a week before the Paris to Cairo flight took off.

EgyptAir Flight MS804 has gone missing over the Mediterranean with 66 people on board amid reports of a merchant ship captain having seen a ‘flame in the sky’.

An Egyptian civil aviation authority spokesman has said the plane, with 15 French passengers and one Briton on board – most likely crashed into the sea.

The cause of the disaster remains unknown but it comes seven months after a bomb blew up a Russian airliner over the Sinai desert, killing all 224 people on board.

ISIS later revealed images of a soda can bomb which they claimed to have used to bring the Metrojet plane down.
