Flight 990 - A tragedy in the air

It was October 31, 1999, Halloween morning. EgyptAir Flight 990, a giant twin-engine Boeing 767 was on the way from New York to Cairo. With 217 people aboard it had taken off from Kennedy Airport in the middle of the night, climbed to 33,000 feet, and flew normally for half an hour before mysteriously plummeting into the Atlantic Ocean sixty miles south of Nantucket.

No one really knows for sure what happened that day. We do know that 217 people lost their lives that day and countless loved ones were left with aching hearts.

They crashed in neighboring Nantucket waters. The Mariner's Memorial Foundation, still working to make this memorial a reality, embraced the families of flight 990 and a monument stands today in their honor.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all of them.
