The world’s biggest plane maker faced escalating pressure after Ethiopia pointed to parallels between its crash and one in Indonesia.
Ethiopia is shaping the focus on the safety of software installed in Boeing 737 MAX planes.
The Ethiopian Airlines disaster eight days ago killed 157 people, grounded Boeing’s marquee MAX fleet worldwide, and sparked a high-stakes inquiry for the shaken aviation industry.
Ethiopian Airlines, whose reputation also hinges on the investigation, said that initial analysis of the black boxes showed clear similarities with a Lion Air flight from Jakarta in October which crashed killing 189 people.
Both planes were MAX 8s and crashed minutes after take-off with pilots reporting flight control problems.
Under scrutiny is a new automated system in the MAX model that guides the nose lower to avoid stalling. pzB#2DԤ�
