Pilot of crashed Ethiopian Airlines jet reported flight control problems

All 157 people on board died.

The passengers hail from more than 30 countries and Ethiopia has limited forensic facilities that could draw out the process of identifying the victims.

The data from the two flight recorders, commonly known as the "black boxes", are eagerly awaited as worry grows that the cause of Sunday's crash could be related to an automated system aboard the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft that went down in Ethiopia minutes after taking off en route to Nairobi.

He could have also been on the Ethiopian Airlines plane bound for Nairobi that crashed six minutes after takeoff Sunday, killing more than 150 people on board. The FAA has refused to ground the Boeing 737 Max 8, leaving the U.S. in an increasingly small minority, the BBC reports.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority welcomed Comair's "self-grounding", calling the decision commendable as the airline "puts the concerns, interests, and safety of its passengers and crew first".

Boeing says it plans to update the software in coming weeks.

People holding passports from more than 30 countries were on board, including a number of United Nations workers.

Norwegian Air said it would seek recompense for lost revenue and extra costs after grounding its 737 MAX aircraft.

"DNA work has not started yet", Begashaw said.

Ethiopian Airlines did not immediately respond to questions about whether its 737 Max 8 pilots received any additional training in the wake of the Lion Air crash and the Boeing announcement. They were joined Wednesday by New Zealand, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The new variant of the world's most-sold modern passenger aircraft was viewed as the likely workhorse for airlines for decades.
