Ethiopian Airlines joins China, Cayman Islands; grounds 737-8 Max pending aircraft probe
  • As Ethiopian collaborate with stakeholders to identify bodies

FOLLOWING the tragic accident of ET 302 B-737-8 Max (ET-AVJ), Ethiopian Airlines has joined China and the Cayman Islands to ground all B-737-8 MAX fleet effective yesterday March 10, 2019 until further notice.
The airline in a statement said,”Although we don’t yet know the cause of the accident, we had to decide to ground the particular fleet as extra safety precaution.”
This is just as Ethiopian Airlines says it has teamed up with all stakeholders concerned to conduct forensic investigations and identify the identities of the victims.
China and the Cayman Islands have both ordered domestic airlines to suspend commercial operation of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 citing the Ethiopian Airlines crash and another deadly accident of that same model in Indonesia.

China has said operation of the model will only resume after “confirming the relevant measures to effectively ensure flight safety”, the administration said in a statement.

“Given that two accidents both involved newly delivered Boeing 737-8 planes and happened during take-off phase, they have some degree of similarity,” it said, adding the order was in line with its principle of zero-tolerance on safety harzards. The 737 MAX 8 is sometimes referred to as the 737-8.
The aviation authority will contact the US Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing, it said.

The statement cited the Kenya-bound Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed minutes after take-off from Addis Ababa on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board, including eight from China.

The Civil Aviation Administration also mentioned the Indonesia Lion Air flight, which crashed after take-off from Jakarta in October, killing all 189 people on board.

China is an important market for the US aircraft company, accounting for about one-fifth of worldwide deliveries of Boeing 737 MAX models.

Meanwhile, Ethiopian Airlines says a committee comprising of Ethiopian Airlines, Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority, and Ethiopian Transport Authority has been set up to carry out the investigations. Once the identities of the deceased are identified, their bodies will be delivered to their families and loved ones.

Ethiopian Airlines has already contacted the families of the victims to inform them of the tragic accident.
Investigation will be carried out to determine the cause of the accident, in collaboration with all stakeholders including the aircraft manufacturer Boeing, Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority and other international entities.
5 members of 1 family died in the Ethiopian Airlines crash and one of them had a premonition about the journey

Three generations of 1 family died in the Ethiopian Airlines crash which occurred on Sunday, March 10, 2019.
Carol Karanja, her three children, and her mother were all travelling from Canada to Kenya and were involved in the plane crash that killed all 157 people on board.
A week before Carol Karanja boarded the ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines flight, she sent a message to her sister, saying she had an uneasy feeling.
The WhatsApp message read: "My heart isn't really excited. I feel like there's something bad ahead, but I don't know what."
Back home in Kenya, Carol's younger sister, Kelly Karanja was worried about the premonition so she asked her sister the exact day she would arrive and told her to pray about it.
Carol replied in a message: "10th. Will let you know the time."
Karanja was so worried about the trip that she sent a similar message expressing her fear of the impending journey to her father, John Quindos Karanja, before she boarded the flight.
Sadly, she never made it home. The plane she was in crashed just minutes after takeoff from Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa. 
She died with her mother, Ann Wangui Karanja, her three children: Ryan Njoroge, 7, Kellie Pauls, 4, and 9-month-old daughter, Rubi Pauls, and 152 others.

Rubi Pauls was born in Ontario, where the family lived. She was going home for the first time to meet her Kenyan family but that was not to be.
Kelly Karanja said her sister was deeply spiritual and always knew how to read things, CNN reports.
She said:
Quote:She was always the telepathic one. She was also jovial, funny, selfless, the one who brought the family together. We are not able to put into words the kind of woman she was. She was just awesome.
Carol's father, John Quindos Karanja, said his daughter sent him a text before her flight and expressed her fear for the impending journey.

Her father said:
Quote:The day before the flight my daughter sent me a message -- and she told me I'm not excited. 'I don't know what is happening dad. I am fearing and I don't know what it is in me.' She had fears. So I thought that was normal. We never interacted again.
John Quindos Karanja lost his wife, his daughter, and three grandchildren in the plane crash.

The black box(Cockpit voice recorder) from the doomed Ethiopian Airlines that could solve the mystery of the crash has arrived in Paris for investigation today.

The contents of the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder are expected to provide critical details about what caused the disaster that left 157 dead on Sunday.

Two men carry suitcases containing the flight recorders from the Ethiopian jet into the French air accident investigation authority this afternoon.

The French agency insists that its investigations are not aimed at assigning blame but at finding out what went wrong to make recommendations to improve air safety around the world.

More than 40 countries, including US, have grounded Boeing's 737 Max 8 or refused to let them into airspace.

The 'brand new' Boeing 737 MAX 8 took off from Bole International Airport and reached an altitude of 8,600ft before coming crashing down 37 miles from Addis Ababa.

Pictures have emerged showing the scale of the crash site from above.

Diggers have been excavating the site in a bid to locate bodies.

Grieving friends and family members broke down in tears while some had to be held back as they gathered at the crash site 40 miles from Addis Ababa.

Getachew, 29, had been described by the airline as an experienced aviator with more than 8,000 flight hours.
