Greek saved from plane crash by being late

Transport Minister Blade Nzimande says his department will work with its Ethiopian counterpart to investigate this weekend's fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash.

Gara-Bokka: The Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 that crashed minutes after take off from the Addis Ababa airport on Sunday, killing all on-board, emitted smoke and was making odd rattling noise before the tragedy, witnesses were quoted as saying in a report.

Teri Okita reports that its Boeing's second deadly accident in five months involving a 737 Max-8 jet.

After Sunday's crash, Ethiopian Airlines grounded its four remaining 737 Max 8 planes.

A 737 MAX 8 was also involved when a Lion Air flight from Indonesia went down in October 2018.

Families of those killed aboard Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 must wait at least five days to begin receiving some victims' remains, the company said on Tuesday (March 12), though the identification of others is expected to take much longer.

He said he was put onto the next flight to Nairobi and only found out about the crash later on.

The people of Beheira's Wahat (Oasis) area grieved the death of Doaa Atif Abdel Salam, a researcher at the Desert Research Center, who was confirmed to have boarded the plane.

In response, the world's biggest planemaker, which has seen billions of dollars wiped off its market value, said it understood the decisions but retained "full confidence" in the 737 MAX and had safety as its priority.

"He was having difficulties with the flight control of the airplane, so he asked to return back to base", he said. They were joined Wednesday by New Zealand, Thailand, and Vietnam.

But he says more questions need to be answered.

U.S. President Donald Trump, an aviation enthusiast whose ties with Boeing run deep, received safety assurances personally from its chief executive Dennis Muilenburg.

State-owned Ethiopian Airline had taken delivery of the Boeing 737-800 MAX plane on November 15.

He said they have been assured of regular updates.

Norwegian Air said it would seek recompense for lost revenue and extra costs after grounding its 737 MAX aircraft.

In both the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes, the airplane immediately showed signs of trouble, with an erratic flight path that ascended and then descended before the airliner crashed minutes later.

The new questions are surfacing months after US pilots criticized Boeing in the wake of the Lion Air disaster, saying the plane maker had not provided enough information or training about a critical aspect of its new flight control system, as NPR's David Schaper reported in November.
