Brand New ET Airplane Crashes, Cause Remains Unclear

Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed this morning in a place called Ejere, between Bishoftu (Debre Zeit), and the town of Modjo. It was a brand new 737 supplied by Boeing in November 2018, according to Tewelde Weldemaruam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group.

“There is no issue of maintenance, and the aircraft is checked clear,” Tewelde told the media today.

The airport lost contact with ground controllers at about 8:40am, and the cause of the accident remains undetermined. The flight bound to Nairobi has no survivors from 149 passengers and eight cabin crew members.
