Boeing to upgrade software on Ethiopian Airlines crash jet

Flight Simulator Shows What It's Like Inside Plane Just Before Crash

News Closeup: Safety of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9; inside the college-admissions scandal

Identifying the remains of the 157 people killed in an Ethiopian Airlines plane crash may take up to six months, the airline said in a document seen by AFP on Saturday.

Boeing will fine-tune its MCAS system - implicated in the crash of a Lion Air 737 MAX 8 in Indonesia in October - within 10 days, said two sources, who cautioned that the cause of the latest crash has yet to be determined.

Dagmawit said temporary death certificate had been given, and a final one would be issued in two weeks time.

In the simulator, Aimer took off from the same airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bound for Nairobi, Kenya, "flying" something like the Boeing 737 Max 8, a model that has since been grounded in the US after the crash in Ethiopia earlier this month and another like it months before.

An Ethiopian delegation has joined investigators in Paris tasked with uncovering the cause of the Boeing 737 Max crash on Sunday.

A mass memorial service for the dead is planned in Addis Ababa to take place Sunday, one week after the crash. The French agency said in a tweet it had not listened to the audio files and that the data had been transferred to Ethiopian investigators.

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

Nadal withdraws from Indian Wells sending Federer to final in walkover
Fourth-seeded Federer received a walkover into the decider as Nadal pulled out shortly before their eagerly-awaited semi-final. Nadal isn't sure how severe the injury but has no doubt that he'll be ready for the Monte-Carlo Masters, beginning April 13.

Jamaica and the United States (US) are among a growing number of countries that have banned the 737 Max 8 and 9 from flying in their air space.

Speaking in a "panicky voice", the doomed aircraft's captain requested permission to return to the airport nearly immediately after takeoff as the plane "accelerated to abnormal speed", the newspaper reported Thursday, citing a person who had reviewed the air traffic communications.

The crew can't do anything about it, and in the simulator; Aimer could not control the plane.

It marked the second deadly crash in months involving the 737 Max, the newest and fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing's fleet.

This is the 737 Max's automatic anti-stalling system which is created to keep the plane from stalling.

The FAA has said that the Boeing 737 will not fly until a software update can be tested and installed.

Engineers had to find out what the system was doing on the Lion Air flight, how the system's commands appeared to pilots, what changes needed to be made to software, manuals and training, and the best way to make those changes.
