Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Any reason why the aircraft never appeared to try and turn back towards the airport like the supposedly requested not long after takeoff? Do we assume they were just too busy trying to keep the aircraft airborne? Wait for CVR/FDR data publish, for now we cant even take FR24 fully since flight was o...

One point that seems to be overlooked by many people is that we have 300+ dead bodies on our hands. Ours? Oh so its your fault those two 3M8 are down? I see.. Of...
