Ethiopia Black Boxes Bound For Europe, Crash Pilot Had In-Plane Issues
The Ethiopian Airlines pilot whose jet crashed killing 157 people had reported flight-control problems, the company said on Wednesday.
Black boxes from the airliner will be sent to Europe after a disaster that has rocked the global aviation industry, according to Reuters.
The still unexplained crash, which happened just after take-off from Addis Ababa, followed another disaster involving a Boeing 737 MAX in Indonesia five months ago.
Though there is no proof of links, the twin disasters have spooked passengers, led to the grounding of most of Boeing’s 737 MAX fleet and hammered shares in the world’s biggest planemaker.
