I've been trying to discover some more about the Ethiopian Airlines 767 that was lost as a result of a hijacking last November. Where would I be likely to find the following information? How old was the aircraft, and how long had Ethiopian been flying it? How many 767s had Ethiopian at the time of the tragedy? As an aside, I lived in Addis Ababa during the 1980s. Taxis and shops all over town had large Ethiopian Airlines stickers in their windows bearing the Legend "767 is Coming!". It was a national event, almost, when the planes were delivered (this would have been 1985, I believe). I don't recall whether Ethiopian ditributed "767 is Here!" stickers, but some of the taxi-drivers edited their old ones to read "767 is in!" D.M. Procida -- "...the so-called support act, The Awkward Moments, climbed onstage unsmilingly, not even looking at the audience. They only played one song: "Autobahn". In German. For twenty minutes. Then they swaggered off, not once having acknowledged the crowd. Conceited arrogant swine."
