Pilot Quickly Called in Ethiopia Plane Emergency: NYT Report
Posted on 2019-03-15 17:05:14
A New York Times report has shed some light on what happened aboard the
ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines flight last Sunday.

The article indicates the pilot of the plane that crashed requested
permission ``in a panicky voice'' to return to the airport shortly after
takeoff.

Today's report cites ``a person who reviewed air traffic communications''
from the flight saying controllers noticed the plane was moving up and down
by hundreds of feet, with its speed appearing unusually fast.

An airline spokesman has said the pilot was given permission to return. But
the plane crashed minutes later outside Addis Ababa, killing all 157 on
board.

French authorities now have the plane's flight data and voice recorders for
analysis.

In Ethiopia, officials have started taking DNA samples from victims' family
members to assist in identifying remains.
