Boeing Ethiopia crash probe 'finds anti-stall device activated'

"[Boeing officials] have to discuss the matter internally", said Garuda Indonesia president director Ari Askhara in Nusa Dua, Bali, on Friday, as reported by Antara.

According to Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde GebreMariam, pilots transitioning to the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft from older 737 models were required only to undertake a short computer-based training program prescribed by Boeing and approved by the FAA. An NTSB spokesman declined to comment on Thursday.

He vowed that Garuda Indonesia did not plan to shift its order to another aircraft maker but ask Boeing to offer the airline other types of aircraft.

All Boeing 737 Max are now grounded.

The 737 MAX planes have since the accident been grounded worldwide. "We are evaluating whether we will shift to Airbus or keep Boeing", he added.

The family of Jackson Musoni, a Rwandan victim of the March 10 crash, filed a lawsuit against Boeing on March 28 in a federal court in Chicago. 737 Max jet automatically switched on before the plane crashed in Ethiopia this month, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing initial findings from the plane's flight data.

In another development, Reuters reported Friday that USA and European regulators knew at least two years before the Indonesian disaster that the usual method for controlling the MAX's nose angle might not work in conditions similar to those in the two recent crashes.

An Ethiopian-led investigation is trying to establish whether the system overpowered the pilots, a leading scenario in the Lion Air crash, and what action was taken by the crew. The suit, believed to be the first from the disaster, alleged that Boeing had defectively designed the jet's automated flight system. The FAA said it's investigating but that the emergency was not related to MCAS.

The Federal Aviation Administration reviewed the USA company's analysis and agreed.

Ethiopian Federal policemen stand at the scene of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 plane crash, near the town of Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on March 11, 2019.

The pilot tried repeatedly to regain control and pull the nose up, but the plane crashed into the ocean.

A Boeing official said Wednesday that the company had conducted a number of its own "thorough audits" since the Lion Air crash and found "nothing that concerns us".

However, the published flight manual did not reference these "unusual" situations, according to a copy from American Airlines seen by Reuters, with tragic consequences and an overall death toll of 346 lives.
