More than 200 people were aboard EgyptAir Flight 990 when it left New York early Sunday morning -- headed for Cairo.

"The last radar contact in which the airplane provided altitude data was about 36 seconds later. At that time--the airplane had descended to 19-thousand 100 feet ... a very rapid descent."
