The Airbus A320 en route from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in France to Cairo (Egyptian capital) crashed in May 2016. The plane crashed into the Mediterranean Sea under mysterious circumstances. The dead included 1 British, 12 French tourists, 30 Egyptians, two Iraqis and a Canadian.
A massive search operation was conducted for the plane’s black box after the crash. So that the cause of the plane crash can be found. The black box was eventually handed over to the US Navy. It was in deep water near Greece. Egyptian officials then said the terrorists were behind the plane crash.
However, an official investigation has now confirmed that the pilot, Mohammad Saeed Ali Shaukair, was involved in the accident. The 134-page report from Aviation Experts states that he typically smoked cigarettes in the pilot’s cockpit. Significantly, there was no ban on smoking on the plane at the time of the 2016 plane crash.
In an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, experts said that as a precaution, the engineer moved the oxygen mask for a general emergency. Which caused oxygen to leak. According to the report, on May 19, 2016 at 2.25 am, the sound of oxygen leakage started coming. After a while the flight crashed.
