    Sad to see the old girl down, but certainly glad to hear the crew made it out safely.

    Yeah...that Egyptair newsflash just came across a little while ago...no details yet...certainly a sad event if it turns out it went down.

    Glad the crew made it out safely.

    With regards to the Egypt Air flight it has been confirmed crashed with debris found in the Mediterranean.
