Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 from Addis Ababa Bole Airport crashed en route to Nairobi, Kenya just 6 minutes after takeoff. The plane was a Boeing 737 Max 8, the same plane involved in the Lion Air Flight 610 crash just 4 months prior. This has led investigators to pursue any parallels between the two accidents given the similarities, namely both flights experienced severe altitude changes shortly after takeoff. However, no cause has yet been determined.
