'Clear similarity' between Boeing 737 MAX crashes - Ethiopian official

Ethiopian Transport Minister Dagmawit Moges told journalists on Sunday that the analysis of the black box recovered from the Ethiopian Airlines crashed Boeing 737 MAX showed "clear similarities" with the crash of the same model of Boeing plane in Indonesia last year.

Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said earlier that the pilot who operated the jet that crashed on Sunday had reported he was having "flight-control problems" and asked to go back to the outbound airport shortly after the takeoff. Meanwhile, the Ethiopian delegation traveled to Paris where the black box is being analyzed.

Boeing announced earlier that it will suspend deliveries of its 737 MAX planes in response to the crash of the Ethiopian Airlines aircraft which killed 157 people last weekend, while on Friday, the company said it will roll out an update for this type of plane in 10 days.
