Boeing 737 MAX Software Patch Expected Soon

Flight Simulator Shows What It's Like Inside Plane Just Before Crash

The announcement comes in the wake of last week's Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 passengers and crew onboard.

In the simulator, Aimer took off from the same airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bound for Nairobi, Kenya, "flying" something like the Boeing 737 Max 8, a model that has since been grounded in the USA after the crash in Ethiopia earlier this month and another like it months before.

College-admissions consultant David Thomas explains how the system is supposed to work, how it failed in this case and what families can do going forward to help their child have a fair chance to get into the college of their choice.

The aircraft's flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR), or black boxes as they are often called, have been recovered and investigators are hoping they will shed light on the tragedy.

Air Canada and United Airlines on Friday became the first major carriers in North America to warn of negative financial implications to business as a outcome of the grounding of the Boeing planes.

Emirati carrier flydubai this week said the 737 MAX remained integral to its future strategy and that it valued its long-standing relationship with Boeing.

The US on Wednesday joined most countries in grounding the 737 MAX over safety fears.

"It has been obvious since the Lion Air crash that a redesign of the 737 MAX 8 has been urgently needed. and the announced proposed fixes do not go far enough".

US President Donald Trump told reporters the "safety of the American people and all peoples is our paramount concern". This was a second deadly incident involving the relatively new Boeing model in five months.

Boeing's shares have fallen 10 percent since Sunday's crash - wiping out about $25 billion in value - after regaining some ground Friday after report that a fix was coming soon.

Both planes flew with erratic altitude changes that could indicate the pilots struggled to control the aircraft. Both planes crashed within minutes of take off after pilots reported problems.

The plane measures 252 feet from nose to tail.

"Break break, request back to home", the Times quoted the pilot as saying just prior to the crash.
