Ethiopian Airlines crash: 8 Americans among 157 killed

Greek saved from plane crash by being late Man Says He Missed Doomed Ethiopian Airlines Flight by Minutes: 'I Collapsed'

"I was mad because nobody helped me to reach the gate on time", Antonis Mavropoulos said in a Facebook post titled "My lucky day", in which he included a photo of his ticket.

An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 crashed on March 10 morning en route from Addis Ababa to Nairobi with 149 passengers and eight crew believed to be on board, Ethiopian Airlines said.

Ethiopian Airlines announced Wednesday that it would send the voice and data recorders from its ill-fated Flight 302 to be analyzed overseas, as more countries said they were banning planes of the same type from operating in their airspace.

Mavropoulos says he was transferred to the next flight to Nairobi but was later told he was unable to board because security wanted to talk with him after discovering the plane had lost contact.

"They led me to the police station of the airport".

"I collapsed because then I realized how lucky I was", Mavropoulos added.

Mavropoulos is president of the non-profit organization International Solid Waste Association and was reportedly bound to Nairobi, Kenya, to attend an annual United Nations environmental assembly. "There are millions of small threads that we usually never feel - but if one breaks that whole web unwinds instantaneously".

A 737 MAX 8 was also involved when a Lion Air flight from Indonesia went down in October 2018.

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. The FAA has refused to ground the Boeing 737 Max 8, leaving the U.S. in an increasingly small minority, the BBC reports. "However, this investigation has just begun and to date we have not been provided data to draw any conclusions or take any actions".

Tewolde said the bulletin was distributed to all pilots flying 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.
