Wednesday March 13, 2019-The ill fated Ethiopian plane that crashed moments after takeoff from Ethiopia robbed Kenya a young, brilliant and ambitious mind.

This was revealed by the family of Yared Getachew, the pilot who was flying the plane at the time of the crash.

According to the family, the 29-year old pilot was very ambitious and brilliant. He had worked in the aviation industry for more than 10 years and climbed through the corporate ladder since his years as a cadet to sit among the senior captains.

“Yared’s brilliance and huge ambitions was clearly shown by the fact that at 29, he had already grown to the rank of senior captain.” stated his cousin Zainab Daham.

Yared has been an excellent pilot. For the time that he has been working with the Ethiopian Airlines he has never been involved in any mishap," added the pilot's uncle Khalid Shapi.
