‘Everything around them is still there’. That’s the titel of the book Marieke Poelmann wrote about the loss of her parents, five years ago in Tripoli. Marieke remembers it like it was yesterday, on May 12th in 2010 Afriqiyah Airways flight 8U771 crashed. The plane took off from Johannesburg, South Africa and was supposed to continue to London after a layover in Libya. During landing procedure, the restart went wrong. There was a lack of cooperation and communication in the cockpit.
SBS ‘Hart van Nederland’ interviewed Marieke about her book.
