A preliminary report issued by the Ethiopian transport ministry cast further doubt on the system controlling the Boeing 737 MAX 8 model, which has been grounded worldwide since almost a month.
Ethiopia's transport minister Dagmawit Moges says analysis of data from Boeing 737 MAX 8 black boxes show 'clear similarities' with October's Lion Air crash. Meanwhile, funerals were held for Ethiopia crash victims with little to bury.
Investigators of Ethiopian Airlines plane crash successfully downloaded the cockpit voice recorder of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, leading new details of what brought the plane down.
The analysis is expected to help figure out why the Ethiopian Airlines aircraft plunged to the ground minutes after take-off last week, killing all 157 people on board.
Malaysia said last week that an Ocean Infinity ship Seabed Contractor operating underwater sonar drones had combed more than 96,000 square kilometres of sea to search for the plane that went missing in 2014.
The deal was signed at the Dubai Air Show, where in previous years major Mideast carriers have flexed their spending power, including $140 billion in new orders announced in 2013.
