Ethiopian Airlines flight data has 'clear similarities' with Indonesia crash
Analysis comes as thousands march in Addis Ababa to mourn victims of flight 302
Preliminary information from the flight data recorder of an Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed a week ago, killing 157 people, shows “clear similarities” with an earlier disaster involving the same kind of Boeing aircraft in Indonesia, Ethiopia’s transport minister has said.
The disclosure came as thousands of people marched on Sunday in the capital Addis Ababa, accompanying 17 empty caskets at a funeral for the Ethiopian victims of flight 302. The caskets were empty because authorities have said that recovering and identifying the remains will take months.
