Two victims of Ethiopia plane crash with B.C. connections

Two victims of Ethiopia plane crash with B.C. connections”

Flight ET302 crashed just minutes after it took off Sunday morning.

He said Ethiopian Airlines has grounded its fleet of MAX 8s, along with several other countries, including China, Australia and the United Kingdom.

A Greek man would have been the 150th passenger on the Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines Boeing plane that crashed killing all on board, except he arrived two minutes late for the flight.

Dozens of relatives have flocked to the crash site of the Ethiopia Airlines near Bishoftu, a town some 60 kilometres southeast of Addis Ababa where 157 souls lost their lives on Sunday, including Nigeria's Prof.

An Air Canada Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft arriving from Toronto prepares to land at Vancouver International Airport, in Richmond, British Columbia on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

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

Gebremariam says the pilot had asked to return to base and his request was approved shortly before the fatal crash.

The ill-fated flight was packed with humanitarian workers and global experts, many of whom were bound for a major United Nations environmental summit in the Kenyan capital.

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.

Boeing said it stands by the plane.

"DNA work has not started yet", Begashaw said.

Egypt, Thailand, Lebanon and Uzbekistan on Wednesday joined them, and Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said Boeing should ground all such craft until safety is clear. But October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia sparked a debate on automation, particularly over a software system created to push the plane down to stop a stall during flight.

"We discussed the departure at length and I reviewed in my mind our automation setup and flight profile but can't think of any reason the aircraft would pitch nose down so aggressively", one pilot said.
