Ethiopian Airlines plane with 157 people on board crashes minutes after take-off

By Canadian Press

State broadcaster EBC reported all passengers were dead and that the passengers included 33 nationalities.

"I want travelers to be assured and that we are taking this seriously and monitoring latest developments", she said.

The Lion Air cockpit data recorder showed that the jet's airspeed indicator had malfunctioned on its last four flights, though the airline initially said problems with the aircraft had been fixed before it left the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.

The state-owned airline, thought by many to be the best-managed in Africa, said there had been no survivors of the flight that hit the ground at about 8.45am. The pilot was a senior aviator, joining the airline in 2010, the CEO said. "The parts of the plane were falling apart".

But more than 500 people were killed in passenger plane accidents in 2018.

"These kinds of things take time", Kenya's transport minister, James Macharia, told reporters Monday morning.

They said investigators would examine the wreckage and bodies for any signs of burns or unusual forces and study the shape and size of the wreckage field. "They are in shock like we are".

The crash comes as Ethiopian has been snapping up stakes in small carriers around the continent to pre-empt potential rivals and become the dominant pan-African airline. Framed photos of seven crew members sat in chairs at the front of a crowded room.

Kenya had the largest number of casualties with 32, followed by Canada with 18, Ethiopia nine, then Italy, China, and the United States with eight each. It was on a regularly scheduled flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, Kenya. The U.N. flag at the event flew at half-staff.

The photos of the men have been released online, and the police are asking for public assistance to identify them. Calgary is home to a total number of 45 Bitcoin ATMs , but only 21 of them support Bitcoin sales.

In March, relatives of the some of the victims of the Lion Air crash sued Boeing.

The Ethiopian plane was delivered to the airline in November.

The jet's last maintenance was on February 4, and it had flown just 1,200 hours.

"A Boeing technical team is prepared to provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of the US National Transportation Safety Board".

China Southern Airlines is one of Boeing's biggest customers for the aircraft.

The Boeing 737 plane was on regular scheduled flight to Nairobi. The statement did not say how many planes are affected.

The two incidents are similar, but it is not yet clear if Sunday's crash was caused by the same malfunction.

Details emerged Monday about the passengers who perished. The suit points the blame at the new flight-control system on the 737 Max.

The flight had unstable vertical speed after take off, the flight tracking website Flightradar24 tweeted.
