Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302's flight data recorder

The plane she was in crashed just minutes after takeoff from Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa.

The Ethiopian Airlines pilot whose jet crashed killing 157 people had reported internal control problems, the firm said on Wednesday, as it prepared to send the black boxes to Europe from a disaster that has rocked the global aviation industry.

The ZAKA volunteers sent to Ethiopia at the request of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to retrieve the remains of the two Israeli passengers who died in the Sunday crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET 302 began searching the crash site Tuesday for the bodies of the two victims.

Ethiopian Airlines said on Wednesday it would send the black boxes from its crashed Boeing 737 MAX overseas, while a Norwegian airline sought compensation from the U.S. planemaker after two thirds of that model were grounded globally.

Trump issued an emergency order to ground the planes, saying aircraft already in the air will continue to their destinations before being grounded.

Ethiopian Airlines had said it would work with Boeing, the national civil aviation authority and worldwide experts in trying to unravel what caused the brand new plane to come down just six minutes into its flight.

Despite Sunday's air crash in Ethiopia, Boeing said that the 737 MAX is "a safe airplane that was designed, built and supported" by its skilled employees. An Indonesian Lion Air flight in October killed 189.

Though there are no proven links between the two recent 737 MAX crashes, the United Arab Emirates' aviation regulator said on Tuesday there were "marked similarities" and China's regulator noted both occurred shortly after take-off.

Boeing said it stands by the plane.

An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 crashed on March 10 morning en route from Addis Ababa to Nairobi with 149 passengers and eight crew believed to be on board, Ethiopian Airlines said. It is tweaking the system created to prevent an aerodynamic stall if sensors detect that the plane's nose is pointed too high and its speed is too slow.
