Black boxes of Ethiopia's crashed aircraft sent to France

Embattled Boeing quietly unveils world’s longest passenger jet

Soon after the crash in Ethiopia, many countries, including Russian Federation, the United States and European Union countries, suspended Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 flights amid safety concerns.

Reports noted that the evidence helped convince USA regulators to ground Boeing 737 model planes.

Meanwhile, crash investigators have recovered the black box recorders from the Ethiopia crash and have sent them to Paris where aviation authorities will examine the voice recordings and other information recorded from the moments before the plane came down.

The accident followed that of Lion Air Flight 610, a plane of the same model, which crashed into the sea 13 minutes after taking off from Jakarta on October 29, 2018.

The 737 MAX has been banned from flying in most countries after an Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday that killed all 157 people on board.

Both crashes remain under investigation, but a preliminary investigation of the Lion Air crash showed pilots fighting with an automatic safety system for control of the jet. Kenya Airways may also switch to Airbus SE, which is MAX's main competitor, but may not desert Boeing altogether, Bloomberg reported.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brace fires Arsenal past Rennes
He opened the scoring after a cutback from Aaron Ramsey in the opening five minutes to get Arsenal off to a flawless start. He should have eased Arsenal nerves by completing his hat-trick with two gilt-edged chances in the final eight minutes.

As American's statement implies, the impact on travelers will vary depending on the airline and its use of the 737 MAX aircraft.

But Boeing did not give the number of workers who specifically work on the MAX program. McCallum said if a safety mechanism is suspect in either case, training to disable it is not a long-term fix.

The chief executive officer of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam, said the black boxes from Sunday's plane crash in Ethiopia would be sent to a "closer country in Europe" rather than the United States for analysis.

Attention has focussed since the Lion Air crash on an automated anti-stall system in the 737 Max that dips the plane's nose down.

Over 100 flights were canceled Thursday in the USA because of the grounding and this could stretch for weeks or months.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), however, cited satellite data and evidence from the scene of the Ethiopian Airlines crash that suggested similarities and "the possibility of a shared cause" with the Lion Air disaster.
