CAIRO: The Giza pyramids were illuminated with the logo of EgyptAir on Saturday night in solidarity with the victims of the national carrier’s passenger plane that crashed over the Mediterranean last week, Youm7 reported.
The Great Pyramid of Khufu, the only one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world still standing, was illuminated by projectors reproducing an image of the falcon-headed god Horus; the company’s logo.
EgyptAir flight MS804 crashed while crossing the Mediterranean early Thursday with 66 passengers and ten crew members aboard.
The Egyptian armed forces announced on Saturday that they found debris from the Airbus 320 airliner along with possible passenger belongings close to the coast of Alexandria.
EgyptAir was established on May 7, 1932. It was the first carrier to be established in Africa and the Middle East and the seventh in the world. It is a member of Star Alliance.
