Black box data indicate similarities in Ethiopian Airlines, Lion Air crashes

The Transport Ministry of Ethiopia said on Tuesday that it may likely release a preliminary report on the Ethiopian Airlines crash this week,

The aviation industry and grieving families of victims of the March 10 crash anxiously await details from the Ethiopia-led investigation.

Boeing has come under intense scrutiny since the crash, the second in five months involving its new 737 MAX 8 model.

The MAX software is the focus of investigations into the two crashes — in Ethiopia this month and in Indonesia last year — in which 346 lives were lost.

This week, Boeing is briefing airlines on software and training updates for the MAX with more than 200 global airline pilots, technical experts and regulators due in Renton, Washington, where the plane is built.

Any fixes to the MAX software must still get approval from governments around the world. The 737 MAX is Boeing’s best-selling plane.
