The national airline “Ethiopian Airlines” announced that the black boxes of the Boeing 737 that crashed Sunday near Addis Ababa were found Monday after hours of research at the scene of the tragedy.
The Boeing 737 on the Addis Ababa-Nairobi route had 157 people on board who were all killed in the crash.
Previously, “Ethiopian Airlines” decided to immobilize all its fleet Boeing 737 MAX in the aftermath of this crash. “Although we do not yet know the cause of the accident, we made this decision as a security measure,” the company said in a statement relayed by the news agency ENA.
The plane, which was received just four months ago, was on a scheduled flight to Nairobi and crashed 06 minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa airport near Bishoftu, 60 km from the capital.
The Boeing crash of Ethiopian Airlines is the second in six months after the same plane of the company Lion Air in Indonesia that had 189 casualties.
