Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says Thursday's crash of an EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo is likely the result of terrorism.

"At the end of the day there's been no distress signals," Kerik told radio host Joe Piscopo on AM970 "The Answer" in New York.

"When you have a plane that disappears from 37,000 feet with no signs of distress that's usually one, either a catastrophic failure, or some major communications failure.

"Unfortunately, I'm not too optimistic that it's not terrorism … The reality is that's the world we live in and these kind of things are going to happen. If it turns out to be terrorism, nobody should be surprised."

The ill-fated jet, with 66 passengers and crew on board crashed into the Mediterranean Sea off the Greek island of Crete Thursday.

Piscopo speculated that because the aircraft departed from Paris, which was hit by a devastating terror attack last year, the specter looms that explosives could have been planted on board.

Kerik, who also served as Former Interim minister of interior in Iraq, lamented that airline security remains a top priority in transportation.

"We should be annoyed and upset that we still don't have airline security right. That should be a big concern," he told Piscopo.

"Because if you don't know today these types of things are going to happen you have to be a moron. Airline security is first and foremost in the transportation mode."
