    The Egyptian commission investigating this week’s EgyptAir plane crash has requested from France the recordings of all conversations from flight MS804 between the pilots and air traffic controllers, commission head Ayman Mukaddam said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the EgyptAir Airbus A320 plane, carrying a total of 66 people, disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace. The plane was headed from Paris to Cairo.

    "I have requested from the French side all the recordings of conversations between the captain of the aircraft and air traffic controllers from the moment preparation for the flight began," Mukaddam told the Ahram newspaper.

    He said he had met with the French side and discussed the search operation and the investigation into the probe.

    EgyptAir has said via Twitter that the Egyptian Armed Forces have discovered the wreckage and personal items from flight MS804 295 kilometers (183 miles) from the coast of Alexandria.
