Juba, November 04, 2015 (GMN) - A Russian-built Antinov cargo plane has crashed shortly after taking off from South Sudan's capital Juba, a UN-backed radio station said.
Addis Ababa, October 20, 2015 (GMN) - Canadian made aircraft of Ethiopian Airlines Bombardier Q-400 plane flight No. ET -150 made an emergency landing while en route from Addis Ababa to Gambella as one of the plane’s wheels dropped off shortly after takeoff.
The small town of Gambella is an oddity among Ethiopian towns, and a most appealing one. Lying at an altitude of 450m in the swampy, mosquito-ridden lowlands, Gambella exudes an atmosphere of tropical languor, dictated as much by its lush vegetation and almost unbearable humidity as by its remoteness from just about everywhere.
