Flight MH17 : German IBM intern Fatima Dyczynski (25) Was Also On Board

The Plane disaster in eastern Ukraine shocked the whole world. The lives of 298 civilians were wiped out in the wreckage of the downed flight MH17 which was heading from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. A German IBM intern Fatima Dyczynski (25) was also on board of this ill-fated Flight. Fatima was on her way to her dream job in Perth (Australia).

The Aerospace engineer who most recently worked for an Amsterdam-startup, was to start her internship with software manufacturer IBM in Australia. Her parents are living in Perth for seven years.

Her mother Ms Rudhart-Dyczynski says, “I was writing to her ‘Have a good flight’ and she just come on Skype,” said. “There was a problem with boarding somehow and she said ‘I’m home at 3 o’clock’ and ‘It’s good to be home’.”

But unfortunately Fatima never arrived. “We are lost without our daughter”, Ms Rudhart-Dyczynski said to Australian media.

Fatima dreamed to conquer the universe. Until the plane in which she boarded (the Flight MH17), was shot down by a missile in Ukraine near Russian border by Russian separatists. Ms Rudhart-Dyczynski further said her daughter, who had started her own analytic data company (www.xoterraspace.com), dreamt of being an astronaut.

Fatima Dyczynski was one of 4 German passengers on board the flight that was shot down over Ukraine. This brilliant and beautiful girl lost her life at so young age. She wanted to make the world and space a better, more connected place. Going to Mars and to be in space as an Astronaut was her dream. May you rest in peace and all of the passengers and crew members on Malaysia Airlines.!!!
