Black boxes from Ethiopia Airlines crash to be sent to Europe

Black boxes from Ethiopia Airlines crash to be sent to Europe

The Ethiopian accident and a Lion air crash in Indonesia left 346 people dead, casting a shadow over Boeing's biggest selling aircraft around the world.

Of all United States airlines, Southwest has the largest exposure to Boeing's 737 Max aircraft.

Norwegian has bet heavily on the "MAX" to become its aircraft of choice for short- and medium-range flights in coming years as the low-priced carrier seeks to boost its fuel efficiency and cut the cost of flying.

Following last October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia, investigators said the pilots had appeared to struggle with an automated system created to keep the plane from stalling, a new feature of the jet.

He said he had spoken with the airlines, as well as the CEO of Boeing and they were all in agreement with the decision. The U.S. FAA said the black boxes were headed to France later on Wednesday.

DGCA said that these planes would be grounded until appropriate modifications and safety measures are undertaken to ensure their safe operations.

Countries around the world have grounded Boeing Max 8 flights.

Boeing has almost 5,000 more on order.

The Boeing 737 Max fleet of aircraft are the latest in the company's successful 737 line.

The Boeing statement said: "Safety is a core value at Boeing for as long as we have been building aeroplanes, and it will always will be".

They fell by 4.8 percent in early trade on Wednesday but later recovered to trade up 2.7 percent by 1246 GMT.

However, the company's market value has dropped by almost $26bn since the crash in Ethiopia at the weekend.

Garneau said the Ethiopian Airlines plane's automatic system similarly kicked in and forced the jet's nose down after determining that it was too high after takeoff.

"It got really bumpy", she said.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Netanyahu spoke to Abiy Ahmed, and Israeli officials in Africa and Jerusalem were in contact with Ethiopian authorities about granting access to Israeli search and rescue team ZAKA.

Workers set up tents decorated with white roses.

The Associated Press reports it will take five days before any victims' remains are identified.

The passengers came from more than 30 nations.

For decades, the United States has led the world in aviation safety, often setting standards that were later adopted by other countries.

This decision was made after consultation with the US Federal Aviation authority (FAA) and the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

United Airlines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines Co all fly versions of the 737 MAX and immediately halted flights on Wednesday. "The grounding will remain in effect pending further investigation, including examination of information from the aircraft's flight data recorders and cockpit voice recorders".

FAA said the government shutdown in December and January did not cause any delays in software updates of Boeing aircraft. Investigators ought to be able to answer the question of whether the similarities in apparent vertical speed and altitude fluctuations of the two flights had similar causes.

In November, two incidents were reported to the NASA-run Aviation Safety Reporting Database that involved problems in controlling the 737 MAX at low altitude just after take-off with autopilot engaged, according to documents first published by the Dallas Morning News and verified by Reuters.

He said that "the evidence we found on the ground made it even more likely the flight path was very close to Lion Air's". American operates 85 flights per day on average on its 24 Max 8 aircraft, or about 1.3 percent of all its departures.
