      Egyptair crash blamed on 'mammoth Canadian birds'

      Mary Vallis

      The latest Egyptian theory on the cause of the EgyptAir crash last
      fall blames the tragic incident on "mammoth Canadian birds."

      According to a news brief of AVWEB, an Internet aviation magazine and
      news service, a leading Egyptian newspaper published a story saying,
      "The Federal Aviation Agency and a number of experts and institutions
      are deliberating ... on the possibility that the Egyptian aircraft ...
      might have fallen in consequence of the onrush of mammoth Canadian
      birds."

      The report did not specify the exact nature of the birds, although it
      did say they weigh about 10 pounds and fly at high speeds and at
      altitudes of 33,000 feet. The newspaper cited its source as an unnamed
      French newspaper, according to AVWEB.

      The hypothesis was news to Keith Holloway, spokesman for the U.S.
      National Transportation Safety Board.

      "That's a new one," Mr. Holloway said, adding the investigation into
      the incident is ongoing.

      The EgyptAir Boeing 767 crashed on October 31, 1999. Slated to fly
      from New York to Cairo, it crashed into the Atlantic off Nantucket.
      The incident killed 217 people, including 22 Canadians.

      Printed reports have speculated that the jet's flight data recorder
      showed someone intentionally turned off the plane's autopilot, pointed
      the plane toward the ocean and cut the engines.
