Flights cancelled at Waterloo airport after grounding

The Boeing 737 Max 8 was involved in a fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash this past weekend, which killed all 157 people on board.

In October, Lion Air Flight 610 crashed in Indonesia 10 minutes after take-off, killing 189 people.

"There is no capacity here so the black box will be sent elsewhere for analysis".

Meanwhile, France's Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) in Paris has tweeted a picture of the Flight Data Recorder (FDR), provided by the Ethiopian investigation team, reports CNN. "We will evaluate the planes which were supposed to be delivered this year, and for the moment will not take them", he said.

Ethiopian officials originally asked Germany to analyze the black boxes, but the Germans lack the necessary software.

The last Max 8 plane, owned by WestJet Airlines, was ferried out to its maintenance base yesterday.

Askhara said his airline had made a decision to reduce the order from 49 "before the crashes".

Following Wednesday's decision by USA aviation regulators to ground the planes, Boeing shares appeared to be stabilizing, said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in NY.

The national public broadcaster Radio New Zealand quoted an eyewitness who said, "There was blood everywhere". Meanwhile, the strength and conditioning coach Mario Villavarayen said: "The players are shaken up but fine".

Countries that have grounded their 737 Max 8 fleets include India, Canada, China, Singapore and Indonesia; the European Union has also grounded the aircraft.

Experts say it could take weeks or months to identify the victims, as their remains were scattered, charred and in fragments due to the impact of the crash and ensuing fire.

Boeing's stock has fallen about 11% since the crash, wiping almost $26bn off its market value. The pilots of that flight reported that the plane's nose kept pitching down dozens of times before it crashed.

Questions about the Lion Air crash have honed in on an automated stall prevention system, the MCAS, created to automatically point the plane's nose downwards if it is in danger of stalling.

Moody's rating agency said the fallout from the crash would not immediately affect Boeing's credit rating.

"We service several of the Canadian operators so, they reached out to us to see if we had places for them to park the aircraft and, of course, we help out our customers just like everybody else does", says Robertson.

This time the plane was a Boeing, whose popular 737 Max 8 model has been grounded or barred from air space in more than 40 countries pending investigation into what caused Sunday's crash.

In Addis Ababa, about 200 angry family members of crash victims left a briefing with Ethiopian Airlines officials, saying that the carrier has not given them adequate information.
