Software upgrade for grounded Max jets weeks away - Boeing

Embattled Boeing quietly unveils world’s longest passenger jet

Regulators around the world grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft over safety concerns arising from the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight that killed everyone on board, including 18 Canadians.

The Ethiopian disaster and a crash past year in Indonesia both involved Boeing 737 Max 8 planes.

Boeing has secured more than 300 orders for its new 777X aircraft from global airlines such as Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways.

The plane vanished from radar at 10,800 feet.

Just minutes after takeoff, the simulator plane crashed, like what happened in reality. "I'm climbing back up", he said in the simulator.

In the meantime an Ethiopian delegation has reportedly joined investigators in France who are probing the cause of last Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines Crash.

Earth from the crash site is being made available for a planned service in Addis Ababa on Sunday, Reuters reports. However, authorities say they will issue death certificates within two weeks.

Who Is Brenton Tarrant? Facts About The New Zealand Mosque Shooter Suspect
The New Zealand Red Cross has published a list of missing persons on its website . "I still don't know where he is", she said. Questions have been raised about why Tarrant had not appeared on a watchlist of New Zealand or Australian security agencies.

Ethiopian Minster of Transport Dagmawit Moges said it will likely take five to six months to complete the identification, but DNA samples were already being collected from the relatives of victims to aid in the process. The erratic flight path appeared similar to a fatal Lion Air crash in October.

At least four American pilots later complained of the same problem with the aircraft, according to documents reviewed by AFP on the Aviation Safety Reporting System, a voluntary incident database maintained by NASA.

The Ethiopian investigation into the crash is being assisted by teams from around the world, including the United States and France.

The grounding of the 737 MAX jets has had no immediate financial impact on airlines using the planes, but it will get painful for the industry the longer they do not fly, companies and analysts said on Friday.

However, Boeing said, in a statement, that it expects the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to approve design changes to the planes' software "no later than April 2019".

Boeing was criticized after the Lion Air crash for allegedly failing to adequately inform 737 pilots about the functioning of the stall prevention system.
