Ethiopian Airlines: Boeing 737 Max crash relatives offered earth for ceremony

France's Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) said on Saturday that its experts had downloaded data from the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft that crashed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa last week. All insisted upon anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. "We will not rest until we are given the real body or body parts of our loved ones".

The return of remains - most of which are charred and fragmented - would take up to six months, the papers said, but in the meantime earth from the crash site would be given. The victims of the crash came from 35 countries.

A mass memorial service for the dead is planned in Addis Ababa to take place Sunday, one week after the crash. Muslim families have already held prayers for the dead and are anxious to have something to bury as soon as possible.

The Lion Air crash also came just minutes after takeoff, killing 189 people, and United States authorities say there is evidence of similarities between the accidents.

Boeing will fine-tune its MCAS system - implicated in the crash of a Lion Air 737 MAX 8 in Indonesia in October - within 10 days, said two sources, who cautioned that the cause of the latest crash has yet to be determined.

The record-breaking plane's debut was supposed to be a more extravagant affair open to the public, but the manufacturer limited the event to employees only following the recent Ethiopian Airlines crash involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, reported Travel and Leisure.

The plant continues to operate safely and "there is no threat to plant employees or to the public", the utility said in a release. There are no immediate reports of any injuries, but homes and trees were damaged and power was knocked out to thousands.

The MAX has been grounded worldwide following Sunday's Ethiopia Airlines disaster that killed all 157 on board, and the fallout has left the company, regulators and airlines scrambling to respond.

According to the flight data recorder, the pilots of Lion Air Flight 610 struggled to control the aircraft as the MCAS repeatedly pushed the nose down after takeoff. Engineers are making changes to the system created to prevent an aerodynamic stall if sensors detect that the jet's nose is pointed too high and its speed is too slow.

The crew can't do anything about it, and in the simulator; Aimer could not control the plane.

The next step is for the campaign and the union to begin negotiations over a collective bargaining agreement, the union said. UFCW said Sanders' campaign had agreed to use "card check" to determine whether most workers wanted a union.

However, Aimer said, after a certain point the Ethiopian Airlines plane's fate was sealed.
