Autore: Jozef Mols
Illustrato con oltre 100 immagini, esamina la storia della Ethiopian Airlines e di come sia rimasta la forza trainante dell'aviazione africana.
Ethiopian Airlines was founded in 1945 by the Ethiopian government with the assistance of western airlines. With a fleet of war-surplus Dakotas, the airline took to the sky. At first, only domestic and regional destinations were served, forcing the airline to build makeshift airstrips. However, in 1957, Douglas DC-6s and a Lockheed Constellation were obtained and flights to Europe commenced. Despite various political, economic, and social obstacles, Ethiopian Airlines continued to invest and grow, expanding to other African countries and further abroad. Illustrated with over 100 images, this book shows how Ethiopian Airlines has remained the powerhouse of African aviation.
