Algerian jet crashedThe Algerian airline which took off with 116 people today crashed in the Sahara desert. All the people on board have supposed to have been killed. This also included the daughter of Cuban President. When the plane was in trouble the air navigation services lost the track of this jet of the Swiftair MD-83. This was around 50 minutes after the flight took off. The crew was reportedly asked to change the route because of fear of entering into a heavy storm.

It was supposed to land at the Algerian capital exactly three hours after it took off but it never arrived. The officials could only get the wreckage of the plane. The wreckage of flight AH5017 was spotted by the French fighter pilots in the Sahara Desert in Mali.

Algerian jet plane lost controlThe path of the ill-fated flight was not very clear from the capital of Burkina Faso. This is where the contact was lost and it was not caught on the radar. After 30 minutes of the takeoff of the flight the crew members were asked to change the route due to storm. All the contacts were lost while it was still in the Mali air space. This was due to poor visibility and the crew was asked to make a detour in order to avoid any collision with another aircraft. The sources have mentioned that the problem started as soon as they changed their route due to storm.

The first concerns were raised when the plane went off the radar while it was passing over the Donetsk city. It was travelling at a height of 33,000 feet which was a pre-determined height; suddenly vanishing from the trackers.
