Viral Video of Ethiopian Airlines Plane Crash Debunked

Facebook									Antonis Mavropoulos is a Greek passenger who missed the Ethiopian Plane Crash

A man who said he barely missed the doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight took to Facebook to share an emotional post about his experience.

Pius Adesanmi is one of 157 people who died when the Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed just after takeoff Sunday, reportedly due to technical issues.

He said satellite data suggested similarities between the flight profiles of the Ethiopian jet and that of a Lion Air plane of the same type that crashed in Indonesia past year.

Ethiopian Airlines did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Although there is no proof of any link, the twin disasters have spooked passengers, led to the grounding of most of Boeing's 737 MAX fleet and hammered shares in the USA planemaker, the world's largest.

Even as many passengers sought reassurances from travel agents that they would not be flying on a 737 MAX, the United States held out against suspension and Boeing continued to affirm its "full confidence" in the model.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority welcomed Comair's "self-grounding", calling the decision commendable as the airline "puts the concerns, interests, and safety of its passengers and crew first".

Possibly presaging a raft of claims, Norwegian Air said it would seek recompense for lost revenue and extra costs after grounding its 737 MAX aircraft.

Boeing said it stands by the plane.

Given problems of identification of charred remains, it will take days to start returning them to families, probably weeks for some which will require dental or DNA testing.

The CEO, however, admitted that the similarities between the two crashes were glaring, considering both planes were new and they both crashed moments after take-off.

"Two major fatal accidents on the same airplane model, brand new airplane model, in six months - so there are a lot of questions to be answered on the airplane", he said.

Mr GebreMariam told CNN his airline's pilots had received additional training on the flight procedures involving the 737 MA after the Lion Air crash.
