Egypt, French investigators disagree over Flash Airlines 2004 air crash cause
25 March 2006

Egypt and France gave differing explanations for the 2004 airplane crash of a Flash Airlines Boeing 737 near Sharm-el-Sheikh that killed 148 people. Egypt concluded in its final report that technical failure of the autopilot, which then led to pilot \”disorientation,\” caused the crash. The chief French investigator said the plane remained pilotable at all times, and that they considered that pilot spatial disorientation led the plane to go right instead of left. (AFP)
