Ethiopian Airlines crash: 8 Americans among 157 killed

Man Says He Missed Doomed Ethiopian Airlines Flight by Minutes: 'I Collapsed'

Clearance for an immediate return was granted.

The Federal Aviation Administration has not taken any action at this point. "So yes, the pilots were well-briefed on the airworthiness directive". It was the second crash involving the 737 Max 8 model in less than five months, after the Lion Air crash off Indonesia in which 189 people died in October. Dozens of countries, including Germany and China, have also grounded their airlines' 737 MAX 8s.

Further, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) also announced that 737 MAX 8 aircraft will be grounded with immediate effect until appropriate modifications and safety measures are undertaken to ensure their safe operations. Argentina and other South American nations are evaluating closing their airspace to 737 MAX planes, Argentina's state-run news agency, Telam, reported.

The country's investigation is being led by the transport minister, he said by telephone.

U.S. crew unions, however, called for the planes to be grounded.

"Similar causes may have contributed to both events", European regulators said, referring to the Lion Air crash in Indonesia that killed 189 people past year.

Despite reassurances in the USA that the 737 Max is safe, concerns have mounted.

"I have collected body parts, pieces of the wreckage pieces and passengers' belongings, which I later handed over to Ethiopian authorities", said Getu.

"We understand that members of the deceased's family have made their way to Kenya and are in the midst of making arrangements", the centre said in a statement. "They really have a close working and regulatory relationship with Boeing", he said. He said that this message has been relayed to the Ethiopian government. And it's a relationship that encourages the admittance of mistakes, it's a relationship that has given us a very great system.

But much more about Sunday's crash remains unclear - including crucial questions over what caused the jet to go down.

Its shares fell 6.1 per cent on Tuesday, bringing losses to 11.15 per cent since the crash, the steepest two-day loss for the stock since July 2009.

The focus on Boeing has also been intense. And Nikki Haley, Trump's former United Nations ambassador, has been nominated to join Boeing's board. "Both times, the crew disengaged the autopilot and were able to keep flying safely", NPR's Russell Lewis reports.

Some aviation experts have warned that finding answers in this crash could take months. It comes after Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash.

He said Tanner, who worked as department head of special education at a school with the Grand Erie District School Board, had previously done community work in small villages to help "homeless and vulnerable children".

On Monday evening, the FAA issued a notice declaring the plane airworthy. Kayak.com was the first big site to say it would modify filters to allow customers to exclude particular types of planes from queries.

"According to the air traffic controller recorded voice exchange, the pilot reported flight control problems and was finding it hard to control the plane".

Several videos were shared on the internet claiming it documents the moment when the Ethiopian Airlines flight got crashed but they were all debunked.
