Ethiopian Airlines crash analysis begins as report says pilot was 'panicky'

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

Family members of 157 victims of ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed at Debre Zeit in Ethiopia on Sunday, March 10, have until September 2019 to identify body parts of their kins.

France's Bureau of Inquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety has confirmed that it took possession of the flight data and cockpit voice recorders on Thursday.

As families wait for the results from the investigation, Ethiopian Airlines is planning to hold a service on Sunday in Addis Ababa, at the Kidist Selassie, or Holy Trinity Cathedral, where numerous country's past rulers are buried beneath its pink stone spires.

Ethiopian Airlines says its pilots received special training on how to deal with the Max's anti-stall software.

A screwlike device found in the wreckage of the Boeing 737 Max 8 that crashed last Sunday in Ethiopia indicates the plane was configured to dive, a piece of evidence that helped convince us regulators to ground the model, a person familiar with the investigation said late Thursday night.

The New York Times reports crews uncovered plane equipment that when tilted upward would have forced the nose toward the ground. And then yesterday Ethiopian Airlines officials called us to a meeting but they don't have anything to say. Meanwhile, the investigation into a cause is well underway.

Marvel Studios released its brand new trailer and poster yesterday and to state the obvious, Avengers fans could not keep calm. Iron Man starts the trailer with his own monologue, likely from when he's recording his farewell message to Pepper Potts.

USA bank Citi said it expected the grounding to eat into the profits of Southwest Airlines, which operates the world's biggest 737 MAX fleet, causing a plane shortage for the carrier and likely passenger compensation costs. "Air traffic control granted him permission to turn on the right because to the left is the city", he said.

Nations around the world, including an initially reluctant United States, have suspended 737 MAX models in operation.

The US Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday followed other countries in grounding the 737 MAX, citing satellite data and evidence from the scene that indicated some similarities and "the possibility of a shared cause" with October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia that killed 189 people. They mentioned changes in the flight-control software, indicating that Boeing was already at work on a solution.

Later in the week the U.K. and India joined in the wave of groundings, and by Wednesday evening President Donald Trump added the United States to the growing list, as aviation officials await the results of an investigation into the latest crash. The FAA and other global regulators grounded the fleet after the Ethiopian crash.

Helane Becker, an airlines analyst with the Cowen Research financial services company said if the planes are grounded for a long time, ticket prices could rise because there will be fewer seats for sale if demand remains steady. The victims of the crash came from 35 countries.
