Boeing jets could be grounded through April: US House

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

French investigators took possession on Thursday of the black boxes recovered from the scene of the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash, seeking clues about the causes of a disaster that has grounded Boeing's 737 Max fleet worldwide.

"It's a great company", he told reporters at the White House.

On Wednesday, Ethiopian's CEO hinted in an interview that the black box was due to be taken to Europe for analysis given that Ethiopia lacked that expertise.

A Sunwing spokesperson says the aircraft are not commercial flights and that they are positioning them in Windsor for the time being.

"Big families, a lot of people and the full Israeli nation is waiting for these remains, and we will not go out of Ethiopia until we find the remains to bury them", Biton said. We are working closely with our airline partners to determine the impacts at YLW.

Flights won't resume until the planes receive updated flight control software that Boeing (BA.N) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration are racing to finalize, Pete DeFazio, the Oregon Democrat who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and Missouri Republican Sam Graves, that panel's ranking member, said after a briefing by FAA officials on Thursday. "We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again", the company added.

USA pilots have complained about the 737 Max, saying its systems have limited their control, according to a confidential US government report.

In two anonymous reports on flights just after the Lion Air disaster, pilots disconnected the autopilot and corrected the plane's trajectory.


It was unclear if United States transport authorities review the database or investigate the incidents.

The MCAS, which stands for Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System, is created to prevent the plane stalling when making steep turns under manual control.

The Ethiopian Airlines pilots reported similar difficulties before their aircraft plunged to the ground as they tried to return to the airport.

And the BEA said yes.

Experts say other possible causes of the crashes are being investigated, including other malfunctioning systems and pilot error.

US, home of Boeing - the world's largest aircraft maker, was one of the last countries where the plane model was still allowed to operate.

"It is hard to get a system to work seamlessly with human beings", he told AFP.

Flight ET 302, heading to Nairobi from Addis Ababa, crashed about 50km outside the Ethiopian capital six minutes after taking off.
