Boeing Under Scrutiny, China Grounds 737 MAX Fleet after Ethiopia Plane Crash

After Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed in a rural area outside of Addis Ababa, killing all 157 people on board, Boeing was hit with the grounding of its fleet and even postponed the presentation of its new 777X aircraft.

The crash of the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 in a rural area southeast of Addis Ababa, killing all 149 passengers and eight crew members on board was shocking, especially after another Boeing 737 MAX 8 went down in the Java Sea just after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia, in October, killing all 189 aboard.

"It's almost unheard of," said John Cox, a senior crash investigator and former airline pilot, cited by CNBC. Cox and others warned that it is early in the crash investigation and there is no indication yet whether the two crashes were caused by the same factors.
