Black boxes from Ethiopia Airlines crash to be sent to Europe

All 157 people on board the flight were killed in the Sunday crash.

A man who said he barely missed the doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight took to Facebook to share an emotional post about his experience.

Chinese relatives of victims who died in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 airliner visit the scene south of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

Wrenelle Stander, executive director of Comair's airline division, said: "While Comair has done extensive preparatory work, prior to the introduction of the first 737-8 Max, into its fleet and remains confident in the inherent safety of the aircraft, it has decided temporarily not to schedule the aircraft while it consults with other operators, Boeing and technical experts".

He said satellite data suggested similarities between the flight profiles of the Ethiopian jet and that of a Lion Air plane of the same type that crashed in Indonesia a year ago.

The passengers came from more than 30 nations. "The pilots were well briefed on the air ordinance filed", he said.

Residents said police were also restricting Palestinian access to Jerusalem's Old City, where the site is located. According to Israel's agreement with the Waqf, Jews may visit the holy site but are barred from praying.

It comes after the second fatal accident involving the 737 Max 8 model in less than five months.

He said he was put onto the next flight to Nairobi and only found out about the crash later on. They were joined Wednesday by New Zealand, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Boeing says it plans to update the software in coming weeks.

"We discussed the departure at length and I reviewed in my mind our automation setup and flight profile but can't think of any reason the aircraft would pitch nose down so aggressively", one pilot said.

While Tewolde of Ethiopian Airlines said the cause of the crash was not yet clear, he cast doubt on the airworthiness of the 737 Max. But October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia sparked a debate on automation, particularly over a software system created to push the plane down to stop a stall during flight.
