It seems anunas horriblus is getting more horribuls this year with the loss of another aircraft – this time a Yemenia Air Airbus A310 from on route IY626 Sanaa to Moroni in the Comoros islands.

It seems the aircraft made one attempt at landing before contact was lost with the aircraft, and from the reports, it seems there conditions were described as “challenging” with high winds.
Prehaps more worryingly, this particular A310 wasn’t excatly praised in it’s last inspection whilst in France, and hasn’t been back since.
From the reports – 1 child has survived. The rest of the 141 passengers and 11 crew (152 souls) are alas being accounted for in bodies.
This year is just not good.
May the souls rest in peace.
