ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – Ethiopian Airlines reported Sunday March 10 there were no survivors from Flight ET302 from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Nairobi, Kenya.
Passengers from at least 35 countries are among the dead. Officials report: 32 Kenyans and 9 Ethiopians; 18 Canadians; 8 passengers each from China, the United States and Italy; 7 each from France and Britain; 6 from Egypt; 5 from the Netherlands; 4 each from India and Slovakia; and 2 from Spain.
Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 struggled to ascend at a stable speed according to flight data published by FlightRadar24.
This is the second crashing of Boeing’s most popular 737 Max 8 in five months when Lion Air Flight 610 went down into the Java Sea after leaving Jakarta, Indonesia in clear skies conditions. All 189 passengers aboard died as a result.
The investigation to determine the cause is progressing. Flight data and cockpit voice recorders of Flight 302 were recovered, Ethiopian Airlines said on Monday.
African, Asian and Western nations differ in response to Boeing as Ethiopia, China and Indonesia ground all 737 Max 8 jetliners. United States, Canada and European nations maintain confidence in Boeing and up to date awareness of the situation making adjustments as necessary.
Our condolences to the families of this tragedy.
We are many tribes but ONE people. We are Black, Afro-Latino, Afro-Caribbean, African and Original. We are BLAFROKAN.
