  • French Investigators Begin Examining Black Boxes From Deadly Ethiopia Crash

    According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, investigators in France began examining the black boxes of a Boeing 737 MAX that crashed in Ethiopia, spooking the global airline industry. Last weekend, Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed soon after take-off from Addis Ababa, killing 157 people, the second incident involving Boeing's flagship new model after another crashed in Indonesia in October, killing all 189 passengers on board. In both accidents, pilots reportedly asked to return just minutes into the flight. Reuters reports that the similarities between the twin disasters have frightened travelers worldwide, while also wiping nearly $28 billion off Boeing’s stock market value.

  • Pilots Slammed Boeing Before Second Deadly Crash

    Just months before a second deadly crash of a Boeing 737 Max airplane, American Airlines pilots reportedly confronted a Boeing official about a computerized anti-stall system. The meeting between the pilots and Boeing happened in November -- just weeks after an October crash of a Lion Air 737 Max into the Java Sea, and four months before a 737 Max operated by Ethiopian Air crashed in Ethiopia. CBS News reports that audio of a Boeing official is heard telling pilots that software changes were coming, perhaps in as little as six weeks, but that the company didn't want to hurry the process. The pilots indicated they weren't aware of the 737 Max's computerized stability program -- the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS. Boeing's 737 Max 8 and 9 planes were grounded worldwide after the Ethiopian Air crash in March. Between the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes, 346 people were killed.

  • Boeing Software Engaged Before Ethiopia Crash

    Reuters reports Boeing anti-stall software on a doomed Ethiopian Airlines jet re-engaged as many as four times after the crew initially turned it off due to suspect data from an airflow sensor. It was not immediately clear whether the crew had chosen to re-deploy the system, which pushes the nose of the Boeing 737 MAX downwards, but a source said it could be that the software had kicked in again without human intervention. Boeing’s anti-stall software known as MCAS is at the center of investigations into both the Ethiopian Airlines crash last month and a Lion Air accident in Indonesia in October that together killed nearly 350 people.
