Screw Found at Crash Site Shows Boeing 737 Was Set to Dive

"The truth about the crash is indeed contained in the flight recorders", he said.

A man carries a piece of debris on his head at the crash site of a Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines flight near Bishoftu, a town some 60 kilometres southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on March 10, 2019.

No lawsuits have yet been filed since the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, but some plaintiffs' lawyers said they expect that Boeing will be sued in the United States.

Later on, an airline spokesperson reportedly confirmed that the country in question was Germany.

On Nov. 7 previous year, it issued an "emergency airworthiness directive", then an airworthiness directive on December 11, followed by a "continued airworthiness notification to the global community" on Monday.

Four foreign airline companies that use the aircraft have since suspended operating them on all flights to and from Japan.

Lawmakers told us today that it would not be on all planes at least until the end of April, potentially longer.


The choice of the BEA followed what experts say appears to have been a tug-of-war between national agencies, with Germany initially invited to do the analysis. "Only the Ethiopian authorities will report on the progress of the investigation".

The 737, which first entered service in the late 1960s, is the aviation industry's best-selling model and Boeing's top earner. 78 percent of the orders in the order books relating to the Max family; about 100 Airlines have already ordered more than 5,000 machines.

The crash in Ethiopia came less than five months after a 737 MAX 8 belonging to Indonesian budget carrier Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea on October 29, killing all 189 people on board.

The grounding of the aircraft has resulted in airlines around the world cancelling and rescheduling flights.

Relatives of the dead stormed out of a meeting with Ethiopian Airlines on Thursday, decrying a lack of transparency, while others made the painful trip to the crash scene.

Ethiopian Airlines chief Tewolde GebreMaria, has now released the last messages exchanged between the pilot and air traffic control.
