Ethiopian Airlines pilots and flight attendants held a vigil last Monday honoring their fallen colleagues who were aboard flight 302 enroute from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to Nairobi in Kenya. The Boeing 737 Max 8 was carrying 149 passengers and 8 crew members when the aircraft crashed shortly after take-off. There were no survivors. This is the second deadly crash involving the 737 Max 8 months after Lionair 610.
It must be a very hard moment for all these pilots and cabin crew as they deal with the loss of their fellow pilots and flight attendants, where maybe some of them were together before they boarded the aircraft to their final destination. Their emotions can be seen in the video below.

Our condolences go to the Ethiopian Airlines cabin crew and pilot community. Prayers also to the families of the victims at this time of loss.
As of this moment, investigation is still going on but this prompted many countries to ground all Boeing 737 Max jets until further notice.
