According to Wikipedia, “Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos said that, based on radar data, flight MS 804 veered off course shortly after entering the Egyptian Flight Information Region (FIR). At an altitude of 37,000 feet, the aircraft made a 90-degree left turn, followed by a 360-degree right turn and began to descend. Radar contact was lost at an altitude of about 10,000 feet.”
