On the 13th of January 2020, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737-700 was operating flight ET363 from Djibouti(JIB/HDAM) to Addis(ADD/HAAB) with a stop in Dire Dawa(DIR/HADR). While approaching Dire Dawa, the aircraft encountered a swarm of locusts. The aircraft diverted to Addis Ababa where it made an uneventful landing.
The locusts have been a big issue in that region lately with an invasion in the Horn of Africa which affected Somalia, Ethiopia and Northern Eastern Kenya.
As of 1330UTC the aircraft is back in service operating this flight:
