EgyptAir Flight 990
On 31 October 1999, the Boeing 767 operating the route crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, about 60 miles (97 km) south of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, killing all 217 people on board.
The flight was carrying 203 passengers from seven countries (Canada, Egypt, Germany, Sudan, Syria, United States, and Zimbabwe). Of the total people on board, 100 were American, 89 were Egyptian, 22 were Canadian, and the others were of varying nationalities.
Of the passengers, four were non-revenue EgyptAir crew members. Of the passengers, 32 boarded in Los Angeles, while the rest boarded in New York. Many of the passengers were elderly Americans who intended to visit Egypt as tourists.
Virginia Chaplin was a newlywed. A week after their first wedding anniversary, she and Richard Browkaw were heading for a trip down the Nile River. They met while traveling in Greece. They split their time between Chaplin's house in Georgetown, Maine and Brokaw's house in Strafford, Vermont.
