Ethiopia says pilots repeatedly followed Boeing’s instructions before crash

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –The preliminary investigation report on an Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed a month ago showed that pilots “repeatedly performed all the procedures provided” by Boeing to bypass a new flight system that can destabilize its plane but were not able to control the aircraft.

In a press conference in Addis today (Apr. 4), Ethiopian minister of transport Dagmawit Moges said the plane’s take-off “appeared very normal” and the pilots had “obtained the license and qualification to conduct the flight.” She also said the Boeing 737 Max aircraft possessed a valid certificate of airworthiness.
