The A320 jet disappeared from radar screens early this morning with 66 people on board after taking off from Paris – 15 French citizens are among the passenger list.
But it has now emerged France’s head of intelligence had earlier warned that the country was being specifically targeted by ISIS. Patrick Calvar, head of the DGSI intelligence agency, told of a “new form of attack” as recently as May 10.
The barbaric Islamic terror organization has previously claimed responsibility for similar atrocities, including the downing of a Russian Metrojet airliner which was downed shortly after take off from Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh airport last October. That attack, which was blamed on a bomb smuggled on board by an ISIS operative working at the resort’s airport, left 224 people dead. The terror group used an improvised explosive device hidden inside a Schweppes soft drink can.
Adding further weight to that theory is a video released by ISIS earlier this week threatening to destroy France. In the shocking footage, a young boy issues a chilling warning: “I say to France: We will kill you, as you killed our brothers.”
Did Muslim Baggage Handlers Plant Bomb in Cargo Hold at Charles de Gaulle Airport of Airbus A320 Flight 804 From Paris to Cairo?
According to Private Investigator Bill Warner, on December 15th, 2015, at least 70 staff working in the high-security areas of Paris airports have had their passes revoked because of suspected radicalization. Since the terror attacks that killed 130 people in the French capital last month and ISIS’ downing of a Russian passenger jet, employees have been under increased scrutiny. The Aeroports de Paris (ADP) group told CNBC that all 70 staff to have security access revoked worked at Charles de Gaulle Airport, the largest in France, and were from subcontracted companies. A suspected terror cell linked to the Paris attackers were allegedly planning an attack on Charles de Gaulle airport and Paris’ financial district of La Defense.
Baggage and freight on a Airbus 320 goes in back near the tail, a bomb placed in this cargo hold would blow off the tail and cause the plane to spin erratically from side to side and then down. Advantages of the A320 Family’s wide fuselage extend below the passenger cabin into the underfloor cargo holds – which are wider and deeper than any other single-aisle aircraft. Access to the underfloor holds is by large doors that open outward to avoid reducing available volume inside the hold. These doors give protection during operations in bad weather, helping to reduce damage to baggage and freight. Inside the cargo holds, baggage handlers appreciate the greater working height and a wider area of flat floor.
UK Daily Mail Greek defence minister Panos Kammenos said the Airbus A320 made ‘sudden swerves’ in mid-air, lurching 90 degrees to the left then 360 degrees to the right. It then dropped from 37,000 feet to 15,000ft before the signal was lost at around 10,000 feet. The revelation came as security experts, ministers and former air accident investigators said all the evidence pointed to the plane being targeted in a terrorist attack.
Sadly, if confirmed, the disaster would deal another hammer blow to Egypt’s crippled tourism industry just months after a Russian Metrojet plane was brought down in the Sinai peninsula by a bomb planted at Sharm el-Sheikh airport.
