Bahia Returns to France

Thursday, July 2, 2009
By George Hatcher

Bahia Bakari of Airbus A310 flight, ejected from the aircraft, clung to the Airbus 310 debris for more than 13 hours before she was rescued.

Bahia boarded a Yemenia Airlines flight in France, but then she and her fellow Comoros-bound passengers were switched to a sub-standard Yemenia Airlines plane, one which had been forbidden to fly in European airspace. That plane failed on its second approach, and impacted the Indian Ocean in bad weather and rough seas. Although others appear to have survived the crash, they did not survive the 13 hours it took rescuers to reach the wreckage. The dead include Bahia’s mother.

Bahia is the only survivor.
