Investigations are currently ongoing about what caused an EgyptAir A320 aircraft enroute from Paris to Cairo to crash killing 66 passengers last year. New discoveries turn to whether the first officer was charging his iPad in an incorrect socket in the cockpit causing it to explode bringing down the aircraft.
Per the Daily Mail,
The EgyptAir plane crash which killed all 66 people on board could have been caused by the pilot charging his iPad in the cockpit.
French authorities have ordered an investigation into whether EgyptAir Flight MS804 was brought down by a fire caused by overheating mobile devices.
The probe is set to focus on whether an Apple iPhone 6S and an iPad Mini 4 belonging to the first officer on board may have caught fire after being plugged into an incorrect socket.
The plane crashed in the Mediterranean and voice recordings indicate that the crew was trying to extinguish a fire onboard. Again investigations are still on going as to what happened in this tragedy.
