Boeing has grounded its entire global fleet of 737 Max 8 aircraft after investigators uncovered new evidence at the scene of the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash. The US plane-maker said it would suspend all 371 of the aircraft. The Federal Aviation Administration said fresh evidence as well as newly refined satellite data prompted the decision to temporarily ban the jets.

The ban on the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft became worldwide after US President Donald Trump joined Canada and other countries in grounding the aircraft, and the black box flight recorders from the doomed plane were flown to France for analysis yesterday.
US authorities said that new evidence showed similarities between Sunday's deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 and a fatal accident in Indonesia in October. The weekend crash killed all 157 people aboard. The Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday that findings from the crash site near Addis Ababa and "newly refined

satellite data” warranted “further investigation of the possibility of a shared cause for the two incidents.” An FAA emergency order grounded 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft until further notice. Trump told reporters at the White House the “safety of the American people and all peoples is our paramount concern.” The FAA had previously held out while many countries banned the aircraft. All 157 passengers and crew died in Sunday’s crash. Ethiopian Airlines said on Thursday that the black box flight recorders from the aircraft have been flown to Paris for analysis.
