Terrorism All But Ruled Out in Greek Air Crash

Two individuals who were seen by F-16 fighter jet pilots were ID’d as crew members of the doomed flight.

A trained pilot standing in as cabin crew and his air hostess girlfriend appear to have been the two people seen by Greek air force pilots trying to save a Cypriot jet before it plunged into a hillside outside Athens, reports said on Tuesday.

Andreas Prodromou and his girlfriend Haris Charalambous have been provisionally identified as the pair from video footage shot from the two F-16s scrambled after communications with the airliner were lost on Sunday, the privately owned Antenna television reported.

While it doesn’t clear up the mystery that still surrounds the tragedy of the Cypriot jet crash, at least the terrorism rumor can be put to rest.
