Investigations into the Ethiopian Airline Boeing plane crash have revealed similarities between the crash and that of Lion Air. Read the full details!.

The world was thrown into a state of mourning when an Ethiopian Airline flight crashed killing the 157 people aboard on Sunday March 7, 2019. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft took off from Addis Ababa and was headed for Nairobi when the unfortunate incident occurred. According to eye witnesses, the plane nosed-dived into a farmland in the capital city.


After days of searching, the plane black box was finally found

Recent findings have revealed that events surrounding the Ethiopian Boeing Max Crash aren’t totally different from that of the Lion Air aircraft that went off the coast of Indonesia five months back. This was revealed by the country’s minister of transport Dagmawit Moges as authorities continue to scrutinize the flight control systems of one of the aircrafts.

The Minister was quoted saying there are “clear similarities between Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 and Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610,” during a conference held in Addis Ababa. This development is put up for further investigations. As part of efforts to get to the root of the issue on time, a preliminary report is scheduled to be released in thirty days.


No one in 157 people on the plane did make it

A few minutes after the Ethiopian Airline took off, it went out of control, killing everybody on the plane. Reacting swiftly to prevent a reoccurrence, countries of the world in including Nigeria grounded Boeing Co’s 737 Max 8 aircraft in adherence to safety measures to protect the lives of her citizens. Much attention is given to a particular control system of the flight identified as MCAS. According to aviation experts, this might have made it impossible for pilots to prevent the plane from nose-diving.

A detailed description of interactions between the Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing in the course of the certification process shows that the regulator from the US assigned a huge part of the safety assessment to Boeing, and the report of the plane delivered afterwards was with a lot of flaws.

Speaking in reference to this, Boeing told Seattle Times that the aircraft was in line with all regulatory and certification requirements.
