Boeing Has Grounded All Boeing 737 Max Planes Worldwide Over Safety Fears

Boeing has announced it is pausing deliveries of its 737 MAX aircraft to customers following the grounding of the jetliner around the world, as the world's largest plane manufacturer responds to its worst crises in years.

A lengthy grounding of Max jets would place a cash burden on carriers, but airlines will likely seek to recover funds from Boeing, according to a report by Macquarie Research.

Meanwhile, after an apparent tussle over where the investigation should be held, the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from the Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 that crashed earlier this week have been handed over to France's Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA).

On Monday, Boeing said a software update for 737 Max aircraft, which was put into development before the Ethiopia Airlines crash, is due in April.

The company added that it's Caribbean Airlines' worldwide aviation consultants, attorneys, and management are closely monitoring the situation and will take all required steps to continue to safeguard the airline, its customers and staff.

An Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed Sunday killing 157 people, shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa.

We sincerely thank all stakeholders for the continued confidence placed in the National Airline of Trinidad and Tobago.

This deadly crash followed the tragic end met by the 189 passengers of a Lion Air jet, which died in October 2018 when their plane plunged to the ground in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Boeing stocks continue to slide on the United States stock market.

Other industry experts say that the financial impact on airlines could be lessened by Boeing Co. shouldering some of the unexpected costs of its customers.

Titans Has Found Its Deathstroke For Season 2
According to Johns (via ComicBook.com ), Titans' take on Deathstroke "will be a new version" of the character. Titans is now available exclusively on DC Universe in the USA and on Netflix internationally.

CTV Windsor has learned Windsor International Airport is now holding five of the grounded aircraft and could potentially see as many as 10 parked on its property.

"There is no capacity here so the black box will be sent elsewhere for analysis".

The Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order to ground the jets on Wednesday saying it made the decision based on "newly refined satellite data" and 'new evidence collected at the site and analyzed'.

Boeing chief Dennis Muilenburg said he supported the U.S. decision "out of an abundance of caution" but had "full confidence" in the safety of the plane.

Investigations are continuing into both of the crashes.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said its pilots had received special training on how to deal with that problem, and Boeing sent further instructions for pilots after the Lion Air crash.

One said the flight crew reviewed the incident "at length. but can't think of any reason the aircraft would pitch nose-down so aggressively".

Before Sunday's disaster, more than 370 jets of the model were in operation. He said the FAA has 'always been a very cooperative, data-driven group, and now that seems to have kind of gone to the wayside'.

The Ethiopian Airlines plane was less than four months old when it went down six minutes into its flight to Nairobi.
