Early in the morning of 19 May 2016, EgyptAir announced that it had lost contact with flight 804, traveling from Paris to Cairo. Flightradar24 tracked this flight via ADS-B and received flight data from the aircraft until 00:29 UTC, 19 May. The last recorded position received from the aircraft was 33.6757, 28.7924 at 36,975 feet. This position is consistent with statements from EgyptAir regarding the last known location of the aircraft before radar contact was lost.
Aircraft: EgyptAir flight 804 was operated by SU-GCC, an Airbus A320-232 delivered in 2003.

11.5. FCU faults
Loss of a single channel will result in the spare channel automatically taking over. All that is required is a cross check of the baro refs.
Loss of both channels leads to loss of all FCU and EFIS panels. The autopilots and autothrust are lost and parameters that are normally controlled by the panels revert to sensible default values. If the weather radar image remains displayed, disregard it since the scale will be incorrect.

5.9. SEC fault
Each SEC controls either 1 or 2 spoilers per wing. SEC 1 and 2 also provide back up for the ELACs (see Section 5.8, “ELAC fault”). Loss of a SEC leads to loss of its associated spoilers. SEC 1 provides spoiler position to the FACs. If speedbrakes are deployed with SEC 1 u/s and SEC 3 operative, spoiler 2 will deploy without a corresponding increase in VLS. Therefore, do not use speedbrake if SEC 1 is affected (it won’t do much anyway!).
Pairs of SECs also provide the signal for reverse thrust lever angle to the reversers and spoiler deployment to the autobrake. A dual SEC failure will therefore lead to a loss of a reverser and loss of autobraking.
If all SECs are lost, all the above holds true. Furthermore the flight controls revert to Alternate Law due to the complete loss of spoilers. Also, due to routing of LGCIU data to the ELACs via the SECs, Direct Law will occur at slat extension rather than gear extension.
An attempt should be made to reset the affected SEC(s).

Air traffic controllers tried to contact the pilot again at 00.27am for the handover of the plane to Cairo’s area of responsibility, but ‘despite repeated calls, the aircraft did not respond’.
Air traffic control called on the emergency frequency and again there was no response.
At 00.29am GMT, the aircraft was over the exit point of the Athens FIR, and at 00.29.40am GMT, it vanished from radar.
Search and rescue operations then kicked in 00.45am.
Pentagon says they have NO indication of an explosion.
U.S. authorities say they have so far been unable to find any indication that an explosion took place.”Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority tried to contact the pilot at 03:27 local time, the aircraft did not respond.”
Greek defence minister Panos Kammenos said the Airbus A320 made ‘sudden swerves’
Egypt and Russia signed an agreement on Nov. 19 for Russia to build Egypt’s first nuclear power plant in Egypt and to extend Egypt a loan to cover the cost of construction. The plant will be built in Dabaa, a site in the north of the country that Egypt. It is due to be completed in 2022, and the first of its four reactors is expected to begin producing power in 2024. … The country also recently discovered a large reserve of natural gas off the Mediterranean coast. link

From U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet Public Affairs
SOUDA BAY, Greece (NNS) — Maritime forces from Europe, North Africa, and the United States began the 10th iteration of the multinational maritime Exercise Phoenix Express, May 17.
Phoenix Express, sponsored by U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and facilitated by U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet, is designed to improve regional cooperation, increase maritime domain awareness information-sharing practices, and operational capabilities to enhance efforts to achieve safety and security in the Mediterranean Sea.
Participating nations in Phoenix Express 2016 include Algeria, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States. NATO Shipping Center is also scheduled to participate.
For more news from Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe and Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet, visit www.navy.mil/local/naveur/.
This year’s exercise control group will be hosted at the NATO Maritime Interdiction Operations Training Center (NMIOTC) located in Souda Bay, Greece, but training will take place throughout the Mediterranean to include North African nations’ territorial waters.
The at-sea portion of the exercise will test North African, European, and U.S. forces’ abilities to combat illegal migration, illicit trafficking, and movement of materials for weapons of mass destruction. Additionally, participating forces will work together to practice procedures of search-and-rescue in cases where vessels are in distress.
Participating Maritime Operations Centers (MOCs) will exercise information-sharing practices.
Participants of Phoenix Express have opportunities to enhance expertise in a number of areas: boarding techniques, search-and-rescue operations, medical casualty response, MOC to MOC communication, and maritime domain awareness tools.
Scenarios focused on the globally-recognized Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) will allow endorsing nations of Tunisia and Morocco to develop capabilities to detect and disrupt the delivery of materials used to build and develop weapons of mass destruction.
A Combined Maritime Operation Center (CMOC), led and comprised of North African navy officers, will form at NMIOTC to manage at-sea operations.
While the exercise is facilitated by the U.S. Navy, senior leaders from North African navies have prominent roles in the exercise. A Moroccan officer will oversee the exercise control group; a Tunisian officer will oversee the CMOC; and an Algerian officer will oversee a five-ship surface action group participating in the at-sea phase.
A senior leader seminar will be held one day prior to the start of the exercise, organized and facilitated by the Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies. The seminar will focus on the current maritime challenges in the Mediterranean and bring forward dialogue on how regional cooperation can address those challenges.
Exercise Phoenix Express is one of three U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet facilitated regional exercises. The exercise is part of a comprehensive strategy to provide collaborative opportunities amongst African forces and international partners that addresses maritime security concerns.
