Boeing grounds entire 737 Max aircraft fleet
2019-03-14 10:37:01

Boeing has grounded its entire global fleet of 737 Max aircraft after investigators uncovered new evidence at the scene of the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash, the BBC reports. 

The US plane-maker said it would suspend all 371 of the aircraft.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said fresh evidence as well as newly refined satellite data prompted the decision to temporarily ban the jets.

The FAA had previously held out while many countries banned the aircraft.

The crash on Sunday in Addis Ababa killed 157 people.

It was the second fatal Max 8 disaster in five months after one crashed over Indonesia in October, claiming 189 lives.

Armenia has also baned all Boeing 737 Max aircraft from its air space.
