  The Fall of EgyptAir 990 - The New York Review of Books

EgyptAir 990 was, first of all, a foreign carrier from a country that is not always regarded as a close United States ally.
In fact, the single plane other than EgyptAir 990 with which the Atlantic controller is in contact during the period before the crash is a Navy plane with the call sign "Arise 57," which was flying in a corridor between warning zones.

EgyptAir has 60 days to review the draft report and offer comments before the NTSB votes on the probable cause of the accident and issues its final report.
