Another Boeing 737 MAX crashes, this time in Ethiopia with 149 passengers


An Ethiopian Airlines flight to Nairobi crashed early on Sunday with 149 passengers and eight crew members aboard, a spokesman for the airline told Reuters.

“It is confirmed it happened 8.44 (am),” said the spokesman who did not give his name.

The plane was Boeing 737 MAX, the same type of Boeing jet that crashed in Indonesia with Lion Air carrying 189 passengers.

Is the new Boeing 737 MAX flawed?
