Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – Ethiopian Airlines flight ET -710 departed from Addis Ababa on January 11, 2009 at 0049 local time.

The B757-200 was scheduled to fly to Rome Fiumicino International Airport.

When low oil pressure light of the right engine was displayed in the cockpit panel, the flying crew immediately decided to take an emergency measure and safely landed the aircraft at a near by Malta International Airport, which is a planned enroute alternate airport. All the passengers were safely disembarked per the normal procedure.

Ethiopian Airlines’ technical experts were soon dispatched from Rome, the nearest location to Malta. They performed the necessary technical maintenance on the engine and the aircraft flew back to Addis Ababa and continued its scheduled services.

Lessons learned from previous successful airliner ditchings helped pilot C.B. “Sully” Sullenberger save 155 lives when he put his US Airways A320 jetliner down in the Hudson River, a fellow pilot told CNN.

Twenty-three people died when an Overseas National Airways DC-9 ditched off the Caribbean island of St. Croix in 1970, and 123 were killed in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 767 off the Comoro Islands near Africa in 1996.

But Emilio Corsetti, an Airbus 320 pilot and aviation author, said those ditchings were actually successful “because people were able to get out” — 40 in the 1970 crash and 52 in the 1996 incident. Read more at CNN.
