  • Brampton Residents Among Those Killed in Ethiopian Airlines Crash By Nikita Brown

Fanu Getu, an Ethiopian village guard, still shivers when talking about witnessing the horrific aftermath of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 plane that crashed in his quiet farming village of Ejere, about 70 km east of Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa.

A Greek man would have been the 150th passenger on the Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines Boeing plane that crashed killing all on board, except he arrived two minutes late for the flight.

The Ethiopian Airlines plane's digital flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder were recovered on Monday; GebreMariam said they will be sent overseas for analysis, likely to either the US or a country in Europe.

At the opening of the United Nations assembly in Nairobi, delegates paid their respects with a moment of silence, according to press reports from the Kenyan capital.

The government has not yet decided exactly where to send the data and voice recorders, though a European body will be approached, Ethiopian Airlines, which operated the crashed 737 Max jet, said on Wednesday (March 13).

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke to Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg and got assurances the aircraft was safe and did not need to be grounded, two people briefed on the call said.

Meanwhile, Europe and India have joined a wave of countries grounding the Boeing 737 Max.

It also says Egypt doesn't have these aircraft and that they are not part of its future plans.

The new questions are surfacing months after USA pilots criticized Boeing in the wake of the Lion Air disaster, saying the plane maker had not provided enough information or training about a critical aspect of its new flight control system, as NPR's David Schaper reported in November.

Lion Air has confirmed reports it has put on hold the scheduled delivery of four Boeing 737 Max 8 jets while it waits for the outcome of the Indonesian investigation into its October crash that killed 189 people.

But several countries have taken the decision out of their hands, grounding the 737 MAX 8 or the whole MAX range to carry out additional safety checks and await developments in the investigation.

In an exclusive interview with CNN, Gebremariam said the pilot of the ill-fated plane reported "flight control problems" moments after take-off and was set to return back to "base".

He said he was later told by the Police that he was the only passenger booked on the flight that did not board.

The announcement from the Civil Aviation Department cited the crash of two of the planes within less than five months and said the ban would continue "until further notice".

Dozens of relatives have flocked to the crash site of the Ethiopia Airlines near Bishoftu, a town some 60 kilometres southeast of Addis Ababa where 157 souls lost their lives on Sunday, including Nigeria's Prof.

"I learned that the flight crashed nearly just after it took off".
