Ethiopian Airlines Crashed - Boeing 737 Max 8 Banned

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
A brand new Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 passenger jet has crashed on a flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi.

 

The flight is believed to have had 149 passengers and eight crew members on board, the airline says.

 

A spokesman said the crash happened at 08.44 local time on Sunday, shortly after take-off from the Ethiopian capital.

 

In a statement, the airline said that search and rescue operations were under way.

 

It did not provide details on the number of casualties.

 

"Ethiopian Airlines staff will be sent to the accident scene and will do everything possible to assist the emergency services," the airline added.

 

First word of the crash came on Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's Twitter account.

 

He tweeted his "deepest condolences to the families of those that have lost their loved ones".

 

The plane was delivered to the airline just four months ago.

 Boeing 737 MAX 8 know to have a software defect that will cause the aeroplane to nose dive. Hope this is not the case , otherwise all 737 max 8 have to be grounded until Boeing provide some level of assurance.

If u fly around this region, u can't avoid the 737 max 8. Almost all our neighbours carriers bought it. Even silkair. Really hope they figure out the prelim cause and ground them if necessary.

The Max is used for certain longer range routes, e.g. silkair deploys the Max for flights to Hiroshima, for example. Took a flight to a regional destination recently and they used the plain old 737-800.

 

Of course never know last minute got change aircraft or not [laugh]

Different. Boeing 737-800 is the 3rd gen 737 introduced in the late 90s. Max 8 is the 4th gen
