On Thursday, April 4, 2019 Ethiopia's Ministry of Transportation released their preliminary report regarding the crash of flight ET302. Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed shortly after taking off last March, near the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa. Benny Agosto, Jr. currently represents the families of three passengers that perished in the crash.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the fatal crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 was caused by the pilots mismanaging the descent toward San Francisco's airport and not aborting the landing to try again.
In the last fifty years almost 45,000 people have been killed in incidents involving private planes and helicopters. This is almost nine times the number of people that have died in commercial airline crashes. Federal investigators cite pilots as causing or contributing factors in 86% of private crashes.
