Contact with the Boeing 767 was lost after it took off from New York's John F. Kennedy airport with 197 passengers on board. Coast Guard officials in Boston said the debris field was discovered off the coast of Nantucket Island. Investigators at the scene were trying to find its exact location.

U.S. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Eliott Brenner said the plane departed New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport for Cairo at 1:19 a.m. EST (0619 GMT). It disappeared from radar screens at about 2 a.m. EST (0700 GMT). The last contact was about 60 miles south of Nantucket Island off the coast of Massachusetts. Brenner said the flight originated in Los Angeles.

EgyptAir officials in Cairo said 197 passengers were aboard the twin-engine, wide-body Boeing 767 plane. They were unable to give the precise number of crew on board, but they named the pilot as Captain Ahmed el-Habashy.

Egypt Air 990 update:

According to Jim Hall of the NTSB, last radio contact with the plane was a routine call at 01:47. Three minutes later it commenced a very fast descent, dropping from 33,000 to 19,000 in 36 seconds. That translates to 23,300 feet per minute. Impossible in a 767. That is 265 mph, straight down.

I think that suggests airframe disintegration of some sort at 33,000. The interesting thing is, for them to have that altitude information, a mode-C transponder must still have been functioning, and so was an Air Data Computer. So, what kind of catastrophe can befall a 767 that brings it down vertically, but leaves the transponder and ADC on?
