Feature: Eyewitnesses recall horrific aftermath of Ethiopian Airlines plane crash

The Boeing 737 Max 8, a commonly used aircraft now forming part of the fleets of three Canadian airlines, was also involved in another deadly crash previous year that killed 189 people in Indonesia.

US and Ethiopian aviation safety officials discussed on Tuesday whether the flight data and cockpit voice recorders from Ethiopian Airlines flight 302, which crashed on Sunday on a flight to Nairobi, would go to Washington or London for download and analysis.

At the opening of the United Nations assembly in Nairobi, delegates paid their respects with a moment of silence, according to press reports from the Kenyan capital.

Kosovo's Civil Aviation Authority said in a Wednesday statement the decision was taken because of "the investigation of the equipment" of the planes, adding that it is effective immediately.

Lebanon, Egypt and Turkey joined the EU, UK and China in grounding their planes on Wednesday, isolating the U.S. regulator, who insists the Boeing 737 Max 8 is safe to fly.

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

Meanwhile, Europe and India have joined a wave of countries grounding the Boeing 737 Max.

"We don't know what next", he said in a telephone interview from Kenya.

Venus Williams makes spirited comeback as Keys stumbles at Indian Wells
Eighth-seeded American John Isner raced into the third round with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Australian qualifier Alexei Popyrin. No. 2 seed Simona Halep needed almost two hours to beat qualifier Kateryna Kozlova 7-6 (3), 6-3 in the third round.


The three USA airlines using the 737 MAX - Southwest Airlines Co, American Airlines Group Inc and United Airlines - stood by the aircraft. All 157 people on board died.

The airworthiness directive said Boeing had found the automated anti-stall system on its 737 Max 8 and Max 9 models can be triggered by a sensor reporting an erroneously high angle of attack - meaning the system believes the nose is too high and the plane is stalling, even though it's not.

According to the company, this has been in the works since the loss of Lion Air Flight 610 in Indonesia on October 29, 2018.

Though there are no proven links between the two recent 737 MAX crashes, the United Arab Emirates' aviation regulator said on Tuesday there were "marked similarities" and China's regulator noted both occurred shortly after take-off.

While some aviation experts have warned against drawing conclusions until more information on the latest crash emerges, much of the world, including the entire European Union, has grounded the Boeing jetliner or banned it from their airspace.

He said he was later told by the Police that he was the only passenger booked on the flight that did not board.

The ill-fated flight was packed with humanitarian workers and worldwide experts, many of whom were bound for a major United Nations environmental summit in the Kenyan capital. "I express my condolences to those who lost loved ones in the crash".

The plane has been involved in two deadly crashes in five months, including Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines disaster.
