An Ethiopian Airlines plane flying from Sudan to Ethiopia missed its landing last week after the aircraft’s two pilots fell asleep.
On 15 August, flight ET343 of Ethiopia’s largest airline was flying from Khartoum to Addis Ababa, reported Aviation Herald.
As the airline approached the airport it did not descend and that triggered off concerns by air traffic controllers who tried to contact the plane but the flight maintained an altitude of 37,000 feet.
An alarm was triggered when the plane disengaged from autopilot and this woke up the crew.
The pilots landed the plane 25 minutes later.
An aviation analyst Alex Macheras tweeted that the incident was deeply concerning
