Crash is final nail in coffin for Egypt's tourism industry'

Egypt has been working extremely hard to demonstrate the country is safe to visit for Western holidaymakers - but it appears today’s crash shows it is clearly not, says the Mirror’s Nigel Thompson.
He writes:
Obviously we do not know the exact cause of the disappearance ofEgyptAir flight MS804 over the Med, but sadly the early signs do all point to an act of terror.
Planes are extremely complex machines and of course they do sometimes crash .
But it’s extremely rare that they do, and it’s mostly during take-off and landing and often down to mechanical failure, adverse weather and pilot error.
Only around 10 per cent of aviation accidents are in what is termed the ‘cruise’ stage, when the plane is basically flying itself on autopilot at a cruising altitude of typically 35,000ft to 40,000ft with the flight deck crew monitoring progress and ready to intervene immediately if there’s an issue.
