Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears

Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears

Retired airline Capt. Ross Aimer flew a flight simulator like the Boeing 737 Max 8 that crashed, killing everyone on board.

French authorities now have the plane's flight data and voice recorders for analysis.

Investigators have found a piece of a stabilizer in the wreckage of an Ethiopian jet with the trim set in an unusual position similar to that of a Lion Air plane that crashed past year, two sources familiar with the matter said.

Family members are being give a 1 kilogram (2.2 pound) sack of scorched earth taken from the crash sites, said two family members. Blue plastic sheeting covered the wreckage of the plane.

USA authorities say information from the wreckage in Ethiopia and data on its flight path show some similarities. "They didn't expect the Ethiopians to lose their jet while all this was going on", said Alan Diehl, a former investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board. The surfaces, called horizontal stabilizers, were tilting up, which would have caused the plane's nose to drop, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, Boeing said on Friday its software upgrade for the grounded 737 MAX jetliner will be rolled out in the coming weeks, and that its timeline for deploying the upgrade has not changed.

Flight simulation shows what it might have been like during the last seconds on the doomed Boeing jet that crashed in Africa.

The United States and many other countries have grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8 as the US -based company faces the challenge of proving the jets are safe to fly amid suspicions that faulty software might have contributed to two crashes that killed 346 people in less than six months. The crash of two of them in the space of just a few months, coupled with similarities in the circumstances, led countries and airlines around the world to ground the plane.

Canada's biggest carrier Air Canada suspended its 2019 financial forecasts, while United Airlines, the No. 3 USA carrier, said it would see an adverse effect on its operations if the jets remained grounded heading into the peak summer travel season.

'It's a awful, bad thing, ' the president said about the crash. At a minimum, aviation experts say, the plane maker will need to finish updating software that might have played a role in the Lion Air crash. The Rev. George Kageche Mukua was one of 32 Kenyans killed when Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 faltered shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa and crashed, a numbingly high toll on a flight carrying people from 35 countries.

The Guardian Nigeria reported that although the initial insurance will be covered by Ethiopian Airlines' insurers, they may seek to recover these funds from the insurers of Boeing, only if they can prove the faulty nature if the planes.

The 737, which first entered service in the late 1960s, is the aviation industry's best-selling model and Boeing's top earner.
