Background

Ethiopia’s premier says the first aircraft built in Ethiopia in 1935 has been handed back to the country by Italy. It had been taken during Italy’s fascist era during the occupation of what was then Abyssinia, eventually going on display in the Italian Aviation Museum in Rome. The BBC reports that it was formally given to Prime Minister Aby Ahmed at a ceremony in Rome and he said it marked “a day of great pride” for the country.
