Maybe but it is the second B737 max in the same conditions within 6 months.

"Only" the lonely I agree.

We wait guys...I know that’s the hardest part in situations like this but we just have to.

Knowing ET their rescue guys are out there and we should get some more information later this evening.

Very sad news indeed, and we should first keep in mind the families of all those onboard this early morning Sunday
flight and try not to speculate until the facts are out.

This is is the most noble thing to do in our profession at times like this.

RESPECT

very similar to the Indonesian fatality, same phase of flight, same type too...:rolleyes: never been a fan of their narrow-bodies anyway. RIP to all souls onboard

Sincere condolences to all families who lost someone on this flight.

As I was reading through the Ethiopian Twitter feed, I was astonished to see this:

How can the FO possibly only have 200 hours!? Did they mean PICUS on type? I think some people reading this will find that quite unsettling at this critical time.

Well I guess that is MPL program, the industry found a way to reduce the 250h minimum required we used to have few years back to about 175h including sim hours. Cost saving, short training period, it took me 3 and half years from zero to cpl ir more than 10 years ago and that was considered as fast. The difference is those kids can only fly multi crew a/c as FO in the company. Everyone is happy!

Okihara 11th Mar 2019 01:52

Ah MPL, true, good point. Still I find that most alarming.

UK bans the MAX from its airspace...🤷🏽*♂️

Magnate 12th Mar 2019 19:54

Reuter’s article
 
Tamirat Abera, 25, was walking past the field at the time. He said the plane turned sharply, trailing white smoke and items like clothes and papers, then crashed about 300 meters away.

“It tried to climb but it failed and went down nose first,” he said. “There was fire and white smoke which then turned black.”

Australia has joined the ban of the MAX from it's airspace. US senators Mitt Romney and Elizabeth Warren have called on the FAA to follow several other countries and temporarily ground Boeing Co's 737 MAX 8. Let's hope FAA will do something coz that will force Boeing hand to act! A very sad tragedy!

Is there anything we Africans can do to counter the stream of sick videos circulating on social media and purporting to show this crash? After my team had an incredibly close brush with this event, I spoke to a colleague who was very distressed by a video which she truly believed showed the cabin immediately prior to the crash. It showed an ET aircraft undergoing a decompression event with everyone on oxygen, but of course absolutely not ET302. I assured her it was fake, she refused to listen. She insisted she knew the woman whose son sent it to her from onboard.

Turn off the internet?

Both Cockpit Voice Recorder and Flight Data Recorder off to France for analysis.

Good on Ethiopian for taking their time to seriously consider and decide where the black boxes should go.

​​​​​​​Taking it to any other country that has the facility excluding the USA is a good idea for obvious reasons
