7:02 am
city of sharm el sheikh in egypt en route to russia. the officials confirm to nbc news it crashed in the sinai peninsula and jets located the wreckage of the plane. it is too early to pinpoint a cause of the crash. the area where the plane went down is near the scene were terrorists clashed this summer. according to the associated press, quoting the egypt committee, the pilot reported technical difficulties and inn te tension to be land at the nearest airport. the 18-year-old airbus a-321. the jet was descending at the rate of 6,000 feet per minute before the signal was lost. the air russian transportation official said 217 passengers and crew members were on board and it was handed off to cyprus officials, but they never made contact with radar.
7:03 am
it is suspected that many of the passengers are russian tourists returning from vacation. russian jet 9268 is confirmed lost from radar carrying 217 passenger and 7 crew members and crashed in the sinai peninsula of egypt. carson and erica, back to you. >> ron mott in london. thanks. >> let's turn to tom costello who handles aviation news. tom, what are investigators looking at? >> reporter: i think they have to look at a number of things. they will look at the weather conditions at the time. right now, there is no suggestion that weather played a role. the mechanical history of the airbus a-321. this is a reliable plane. the biggest airbus in the family. it has a good record. they will look into the mechanical history of the plane and we don't know which engine configuration on the plane. one made by ge and one made by
7:04 am
rolls royce pratt and whitney. they will look at the rate of descent. at last report, the plane was coming down 6,000 to 7,000 feet per minute. that is not a terribly unusual descent rate. it would suggest that somebody must have been trying to control the plane. keep in mind that for example, to compare that rate of descent to the plane we know crashed. air france 447 over the atlantic, descented 15,000 feet per minute. we don't know the circumstances. we need to get a little more information before we determine if the pilot was in control of the plane trying to guide the plane down or not. one other point. there was an original report from the scene, as you know, very often the original reporting turns out to be wrong.
7:05 am
some original reporting that voices may have been heard in the wreckage. if that's true, that would suggest to me anyway that the pilot did manage to somehow put the plane down on the desert floor before it came apart as opposed to breaking up in flight. it is all conjecture. we don't know. the authorities will have their hands full. we believe it will be the egyptian authorities and russian authorities and because it is a plane made in europe, made in french, the french investigation team as well. >> you will continue to stay on top of it for us. tom, thanks. now to the deadly floods in texas. two people dead and others feared missing after the severe weather hit overnight. there are authorities on the way to inspect the areas. we have nbc's charles hadlock in
