However, it is still unclear why the accident took place

May 23, 2016: The first images of wreckage and debris of the EgyptAir flight that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last week have been released. The Airbus A320, which was carrying 56 passengers and 10 crew members, had just crossed from Greek airspace into Egyptian airspace and was about 35 minutes from its destination.

About 20 minutes after the pilot’s last contact with Greek air traffic controllers, the plane ran into trouble. Why it did not send out a distress signal remains unclear. Investigators so far have no indication as to what caused the plane to suddenly swerve before plummeting out of the sky.

Experts will only be able to piece together a fuller picture when more wreckage is found, including the black box.
