Investigation Of Ethiopian Airlines Plane Crash Begins In Paris

Boeing has announced that it will temporarily halt deliveries of its 737 MAX fleet after the aircraft were grounded for an indefinite period globally in the wake of the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane of the same model that killed all 157 people on board. European Union states, China, Russia and many others have issued a ban on the aircraft. The French air safety authority BEA confirmed the receipt of the in the crash-damaged black boxes.

And in what may presage a raft of claims, Norwegian Air has said it will seek compensation from Boeing for costs and lost revenue after grounding its 737 Max fleet.

Boeing shares (NYSE:BA) have continued to slide as increasing numbers of countries - including Australia - and airlines move to ground the controversial jet, which was also involved in the October 2018 Indonesian Lion Air crash which killed 189.

Reports noted that the evidence helped convince us regulators to ground Boeing 737 model planes. Japan became the latest nation to suspend the planes on Thursday, and Garuda Indonesia said it may cancel its order for 20 of the aircraft, depending the FAA's position.

The plane's crash-proof recorders have been sent to France to be analyzed.

The 737 was the best-selling model in the aviation industry and was the top earner for Boeing. Because its engines were larger and heavier, they were placed higher and farther forward on the wings. "Moreover, the larger risk is the reputational concern for Boeing".

Ethiopian Airlines was not immediately available for comment. Meanwhile, investigators on the scene near Addis Ababa are still looking through the rest of the debris. Blue plastic sheeting covers the wreckage of the plane.
