A flight attendant aboard the EgyptAir plane that crashed into the eastern Mediterranean Sea early Thursday posted an image of a plane plunging into an ocean to Facebook more than two years ago.

Samar Ezz Eldin, 27, was one of seven crew members aboard EgyptAir Flight 804, which took off from Paris for Cairo. The plane, never issuing a distress call, plummeted 38,000 feet into the sea, killing everyone on board.

According to the Guardian, Ezz Eldin had been a flight attendant for the airline for two years. The ominous image she posted to Facebook in September 2014, just a few months after starting the job, shows a drenched flight attendant walking through water with a plane pictured behind her. The image has been shared 6,356 times.

Ezz Eldin was among 66 people killed in the crash that some experts have said was more likely caused by terrorism than equipment failure. Leaked flight data shows there was trouble in the plane’s cockpit and smoke in a lavatory before the jet crashed.

Officials caution it's still too early to say what happened to the aircraft — France's foreign minister said Saturday that "all the hypotheses are being examined" — but mounting evidence points to a sudden, dramatic catastrophe that led to its crash.

RasHa Ahmed Carson, a friend of Ezz Eldin, shared a photo of the two of them on Facebook, and wrote, “She [was] a wonderful person inside and out... I will always remember her good deeds."

Ezz Eldin was married recently, the Guardian reported.

Other victims of the crash include a businessman adored by his colleagues, a language and history scholar and a mother caring for a daughter with cancer.
