Father of the pilot of the crashed Ethiopian Airline plane, Dr. Getachew Tesema, is irrepressibly mourning his son.
The deceased pilot, Yared Getachew, was only 29-year-old but had more than 8,000 hours of flight time and more than 10 years of experience.
Mourning his son, Dr. Tesema, who is a surgeon, said Yared was a special child who never backed down from any challenge.
He disclosed that his son was even engaged to be married before encountering the unfortunate plane crash.
“He was hard working and respected everyone, old or young. People loved him and respected him, and he was a blessing in so many ways. He was very close to me.”, Dr. Getachew told VOA.
The late pilot was born in Kenya in 1989, and was the fifth of six children and his father hopes the pilot’s commitment will be remembered in history.
