Iran bans Boeing 737 MAX from airspace: civil aviation

Embattled Boeing quietly unveils world’s longest passenger jet

In the wake of the tragedy, which followed the similar deadly crash of Boeing 737 MAX in Indonesia in late October, aviation authorities and airlines around the world have either grounded their 737 MAX 8 series aircraft or closed their airspace to them.

"The president reiterated his sorrow over the loss of life and underscored America's commitment to work with the government of Ethiopia - a longstanding partner and friend of the United States - and global civil aviation authorities to determine the cause of the crash", the White House said in a statement. Acting Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) administrator Daniel Elwell has said he does not know how long the United States grounding will last.

US authorities say information from the wreckage in Ethiopia and data on its flight path show some similarities.

Victim identification would be done to scientific global standards, and internationally-recognized organizations such as Interpol were going to be involved in the process, she said.

The US on Wednesday joined most countries in grounding the 737 MAX over safety fears. The pilot of that plane reported control problems. Engineers are making changes to the system created to prevent an aerodynamic stall if sensors detect that the jet's nose is pointed too high and its speed is too slow.

Thousands of miles away, distraught families were demanding answers as they visited the deep black crater where the plane smashed into a field outside the capital, disintegrating on impact.

In the simulator, Aimer took off from the same airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bound for Nairobi, Kenya, "flying" something like the Boeing 737 Max 8, a model that has since been grounded in the US after the crash in Ethiopia earlier this month and another like it months before. The information that they contain helps explain 90 percent of all crashes, according to aviation experts.

"The United States Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information now available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators".

Boeing Co. suspended deliveries of the 737 Max planes and has not said when it will be able to address regulators' concerns with the planes.

Interpol and Blake Emergency Services, hired by Ethiopian Airlines, will work with Ethiopian police and health officials to identify the bodies, Dagmawit Moges, Ethiopia's Minister of Transport said on Saturday.

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

"There's really no way to pull that aircraft up out of that nosedive", he said.

The jet initially flew below the minimum safe height for its climb, then once at higher altitude was oscillating up and down by hundreds of feet, all at abnormally fast speed, the Times said. Shortly after their takeoffs, both crews tried to return to the airports but crashed. "Request vector (direction) for landing".

During that time, the pilot reported a flight control problem.
