Ethiopia’s transport minister Dagmawit Moges says the preliminary data from the flight data recorder of the crashed Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX shows a clear similarity with an accident involving Indonesia’s Lion Air in October 2018.
An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 has crashed shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport, killing all 157 passengers and crew.
The preliminary report into Lion Air flight JT610 says pilots were battling a “flight control problem” before the Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in the Java Sea.
Indonesian investigators have recovered the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) of the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 that crashed in late October 2018.
