French Aviation Watchdog Sends Boeing 737 MAX Crash Data to Ethiopian Officials

Embattled Boeing quietly unveils world’s longest passenger jet

Transport Canada, the U.S. Federal Aviation Authority and other major governing bodies barred the flights of the two-year-old 737 Max after the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane shortly after takeoff on Sunday killed 157 people.

ReutersAn Air Canada Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft is seen on the ground at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Toronto on March 13, 2019.

As investigators in Paris started studying the cockpit voice recorder of the crashed Ethiopian Airlines jet Saturday, grieving family members were given sacks of dirt to bury in place of the remains of their loved ones.

In the wake of the tragedy, which followed the similar deadly crash of Boeing 737 MAX in Indonesia in late October, aviation authorities and airlines around the world have either grounded their 737 MAX 8 series aircraft or closed their airspace to them.

Boeing said it supports the grounding of its planes as a precautionary step, while reiterating "full confidence" in their safety.

Air Canada said Friday that, "in light of the current uncertainty", it is suspending the forecast it provided last month for its 2019 financial year.

In Addis Ababa, a source who has listened to the air traffic control recording of the plane's communications said flight 302 had an unusually high speed after take-off before the plane reported problems and asked permission to climb quickly.

An FAA emergency order has grounded 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft until further notice, effectively taking the aircraft out of the skies globally.

Boeing Co. suspended deliveries of the 737 Max planes and has not said when it will be able to address regulators' concerns with the planes.

Both planes flew with erratic altitude changes that could indicate the pilots struggled to control the aircraft.

Trump and Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed exchanged condolences Friday, Abiy said on Twitter, with the USA president praising Ethiopian Airlines as a "strong institution" and offering technical support.

However, there have been reports from pilots that the system tip the aircraft's nose downwards within minutes of take-off, forcing them to step in to stop the plane from dropping.
