Ethiopia and Indonesia crash parallels heap pressure on Boeing

  • Boeing CEO says measures to'fully ensure 737 MAX series safety being taken

As a result of the of two crashes, Boeing said it would release a software upgrade for the anti-stall system and the pilot displays on the 737 Max.

- The U.S. Justice Department is also looking at the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) oversight of Boeing, one of the people said.

Boeing says it sent a team of investigators to Ethiopia to assist in investigating the latest crash, which experts say has many similarities to the crash of a Lion Air flight in October.

Earlier, the ministry issued a temporary ban, ordering all related aviation agencies to examine Boeing 737 Max 8 planes to ensure flight safety, and authorised inspectors would grant permission for those aircraft which are declared fit to serve.

More than 300 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 passenger jets have been grounded worldwide after two fatal crashes in the past five months in Ethiopia and Indonesia killed almost 350 people. The same aspect has been noted as a link to the investigations on the Lion Air crash roughly five months ago.

Boeing has promised a software update for the new system, which was introduced with the 737 Max.

"Unlike France, where criminal investigations into aviation accidents seems common, it is very, very rare in the US", Hamilton added.

Two others - a 4-year-old in critical condition and her father - were transferred to a hospital in Auckland. More than 250 New Zealand police staff are working on the inquiry in the attacks, with staff from the U.S.

The motors on the new plane are heavier than in the 737 NG, posing more of a risk of stalling, so the MCAS was created to protect against the possibility.

Since the Ethiopian crash, which claimed 157 lives, questions have been raised not only about Boeing, but also the FAA and its close relationship with the company.

China's Ministry of Commerce, which is in charge of the nation's trade talks with the US, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. This basically was a fatal accident that involved a number of 737 Max 8 Model to be there in even less than 5 months.

Boeing's main rival, Airbus, has seen its stock rise 5 percent since the crash, but can not simply pick up the slack given the complicated logistics of plane-building.

Mr Muilenburg said work is progressing "thoroughly and rapidly" to learn more about the Ethiopian Airlines accident and understand the information from the aircraft's cockpit voice and flight-data recorders.

Boeing's shares were trading around 11 per cent down on prices seen before the Ethiopian Airlines crash, at $374.99 today in the US.

- USA lawmakers said the planes could be grounded for weeks to upgrade and install the software in every plane. The FAA would not comment.
