Many media outlets have already managed to report that a Russian Airbus Kogalymavia airline carrying 217 passengers crashed in Egypt. There were a total of 224 people on board. However, information about the connection of the crew of the missing Russian airliner to Turkish dispatchers soon appeared. The Russian airline’s Airbus, which flew from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, did not crash, as many media outlets have already had time to fly, and it flies over Turkey. The same was stated by the head of the Egyptian Air Transport Security Agency, Ayman al Mukaddan.
