Question Meteor

Flight 804..

Could a meteor have brought down MS804?..

Egypt Air Flight 804 was a regularly scheduled international passenger flight from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to Cairo International Airport, operated by EgyptAir.. On 19 May 2016 at 02:33 Egypt Standard Time (UTC+2), the Airbus A320 crashed into the Mediterranean Sea..No mayday call was received by air traffic control, although signals that smoke had been detected in one of the aircraft's lavatories and in the avionics bay were automatically transmitted via ACARS shortly before the aircraft disappeared from radar..The crew of 10 consisted of 2 pilots, 5 flight attendants, and 3 security personnel.. According to EgyptAir, captain Mohammed Shoqeir had 6,275 hours of flying experience, including 2,101 hours on the A320, while first officer Mohamed Assem had 2,766 hours..

Flight speed (orange) & altitude (blue) from 20:30 to 00:30..

The John Lethbridge, a vessel belonging to Deep Ocean Search, equipped with a remotely operated underwater vehicle that can detect signals in depths of up to 6,000 metres (20,000 ft), and map the seabed, was contracted by Egyptian authorities..A more specialized French Navy ship, the oceanographic research ship Laplace, left the Corsican port of Porto-Vecchio for the search area on 27 May, according to French aircraft accident investigation body the Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile (BEA)..On 27 June, the BEA announced that the FDR had been repaired and sent back to Cairo for data analysis by civil aviation safety authorities - A massive space rock weighing up to 10,000 tonnes, and travelling at a startling 67,000 mph broke up in the Earth's atmosphere and fragments of it were still falling to Earth at around the time air traffic controllers lost contact with the doomed Paris to Cairo plane...'s burning up time..You either love or you despise, there's just no time for compromise..The days have gotta move real fast..We know that nothing's gonna last..It's burning up time...
