Civil Aviation Authority bans contentious Boeing 737 Max from Rwandan airspace

Civil Aviation Authority bans contentious Boeing 737 Max from Rwandan airspace

The BEA said that "technical work" was scheduled to begin Friday.

People walk past a part of the wreckage at the scene of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 plane crash, near the town of Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The cause of the crash is still unclear, experts suspect, but a technical Problem with the machine. A preliminary report by KNKT in November, before the retrieval of the cockpit voice recorder, focused on maintenance and training and the response of a Boeing anti-stall system to a recently replaced sensor, but gave no reason for the crash.

Dan Elwell, acting administrator at the US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), said on Wednesday: "It became clear to all parties that the track of the Ethiopian Airlines [flight] was very close and behaved very similarly to the Lion Air flight".

A team from Boeing has arrived at the crash site in Ethiopia as the investigation into what went wrong enters its third day, the network says.

"We set the delivery of the 737 Max, until we find a solution", said a group spokesman. The plane had crashed into the Java Sea shortly after taking off, claiming the lives of 189 people.

They ordered two other Ethiopian flights approaching the airport to stay at higher altitudes and it was during this exchange that the captain made his "panicky" request to turn back. It will take several days to complete the first readings from the boxes, French aviation officials said. The incident came after Lion Air Flight JT610 crashed minutes after departing Jakarta in late October.

The decision to send the flight recorders from the Ethiopia crash to France was seen as a rebuke to the US, which held out longer than most other countries in grounding the jets, finally giving the order Thursday afternoon.

France's aviation safety agency BEA has the cockpit voice and data recorders and are now decoding.

Air traffic controllers were aware of the plane's flight path. The BEA is one of the world's most active air crash agencies alongside the National Transportation Safety Board of the United States and has laboratories at its Le Bourget headquarters.
