Veteran pilot Capt. Mike Mukula says it was a grave mistake for the choppers, which are largely low flying, to fly over the mountain.
says if the destination was Garissa, the choppers should have skirted the mountain, passing around Isiolo and then Garissa, en-route to Wajir.
"A close examination of the wreckage indicates that the choppers did not crash, but went up and lost power, before trying to land," he
thinks the choppers should have flown from Eldoret to Isiolo, then Garissa-Wajir without going to Nanyuki, which is almost surrounded by Mt. Kenya.
