June 11, 1986

An Egyptian commuter plane operated by Air Sinai crashed about half a mile short of Cairo International Airport and burst into flames, killing 20 people. Five others thrown free of the twin-engine Fokker 27 survived, officials reported. All aboard were identified as Egyptians. An informed source said the dead included stewardess Ashgan Attia, who survived last November's hijacking of an EgyptAir jetliner to Malta, in which 60 people died when Egyptian commandos stormed the plane.
