On March 10, Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 was a scheduled passenger flight from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Nairobi, Kenya. However, it crashed six minutes into its flight, killing all 157 people on board. As of now the ongoing investigation into its crash led to a ban on all Boeing 737’s flying, the last two to ban being Canada and America.
Later reports from the black box revealed that the pilots repeatedly tried to pull the airplane up, but the airplane’s computer rejected the commands, sending it in a nosedive. Further studies have shown that the crew followed all directions and procedures, and that the crash was most likely not of human error.
The later findings of the error in mechanics of the Boeing 737 have pressed increasingly negative coverage not only in Boeing, whose stocks have plummeted since news of the crash, but the FAA, or Federal Aviation Administration, whose requirements for ready planes have been questioned since the error in the plane.
