Two Pilot Asleep Miss Landing: The Pilots Fall Asleep at 37000 Feet

Two pilots for Ethiopian Airlines dozed off during a trip from Khartoum, Sudan, to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and nearly crashed the plane.

Aviation Herald reports that the incident occurred on Monday and that Air Traffic Control (ATC) issued a warning when flight ET343 approached the airport but did not begin the descent.

According to the source, the Boeing 737’s autopilot system kept the plane cruising at 37,000 feet while the pilots slept.

The report added that the plane waited around for another 2.5 hours before taking off again.
Multiple attempts by air traffic control to get in touch with the pilots were unanswered.

The autopilot lost connection when the jet passed above the landing strip. According to Aviation Herald, this caused an alarm and woke up the pilots.

After waiting another 25 minutes, they reportedly turned the plane around and landed on the runway.

It’s good news that nobody was hurt and the plane made a safe landing.

ADS-B data showed that the plane did indeed cross the runway during the incident. The flight route graphic presented on its website appears to be an infinite loop above the area surrounding the Addis Abeba airport.

Alex Macheras, an expert in the field of aviation, tweeted his concern over the incident. Pilot exhaustion was another factor he mentioned as a possible explanation.

In a similar occurrence in May, two pilots reportedly nodded off while flying from New York to Rome at an altitude of 38,000 feet.
