UPDATE: More details on this developing story can be found here.

EgyptAir flight 804 has disappeared from radar, according to a Tweet from the airline. 

Further Tweets confirm that the flight was traveling at a height of 37,000 feet between Paris and Cairo, disappearing within 10 miles of entering Egyptian airspace. According to the airline, EgyptAir "contacted the concerned authorities and bodies and inspection is underway through the rescue teams."

The plane, carrying 56 passengers and 10 crewmembers, left Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport at 11:09 p.m. local time.

This comes less than a year after the crash of Metrojet flight 9268, which was downed in Egyptian airspace by what Egyptian officials later admitted was an act of terrorism

More details as they develop.
