Apart from the video from inside a plane where the passengers were wearing masks in an apparent turbulent flight, there’s still another one that shows when the plane dipped down and burst into flames.
It’s been confirmed that the viral videos are not from the Ethiopian Airlines flight ET302 which crashed on Sunday morning within few minutes after take-off.
There was no survivor among the 157 passengers and crew that were on board the plane when the incident occurred, and there’s no official video that shows how the events unfolded.
The government of Ethiopia had declared a national day of mourning on Monday in honour of the victims, while investigations continue on the cause of the crash.
