An air hostess on EgyptAir flight MS804 had posted a picture of a plane crashing into the sea on her Facebook page, it has emerged.
Samar Ezz Eldin, 27, uploaded the image in September 2014 just four months after she started working at Egypt's national carrier.
It shows an air hostess dressed smartly in wet clothes pulling a carry-on suitcase out of the water as a passenger jet plunges into the sea behind her.
Miss Eldin, who studied modern languages at the Ain Shams University in Cairo, was among the first victims on the Airbus A320 to be named as investigators admitted the cause of the disaster was still a mystery.
It came as crews searching for the doomed jet found a severed arm, luggage and a two-mile-long oil slick in the Mediterranean, slightly south of where the aircraft had vanished from radar.
The Egyptian military discovered wreckage around 180 miles north of the coastal city of Alexandria and are now sweeping the area for the plane's black box recorders which could hold the key to the plane's mysterious disappearance.

As the search continued, heartbreaking details are emerging of the promising young lives of those on board including the captain who celebrated a promotion just four days earlier, MailOnline can reveal.
Other victims identified are the co-pilot whose family sacrificed everything so he could learn to fly and a cabin manager who gave up a successful TV acting career to become an air hostess.
Captain Mohamed Said Ali Ali Shoukair, 37, from Giza, had invited his colleagues and former flying school classmates to a huge dinner to celebrate his promotion to the rank of senior pilot, MailOnline can reveal.
Ahmed Adly, of the Egyptian Pilots Association, told MailOnline: 'I can confirm that Mohamed Said Ali Ali Shoukair was the captain of the Egyptair MS804 that has been lost.'
