Trump Says US Grounding Boeing Jet After Crash

Trump Says US Grounding Boeing Jet After Crash

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration prohibited the operation of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft by U.S. certified operators or in U.S. territory on Wednesday.

Likewise, the Boeing 737 didn't operate on a regular basis from Bradley International Airport when they were flying, said Kevin A. Dillon, executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority.

Sunday's crash, in which 157 people from 35 countries were killed minutes after takeoff from Addis Ababa, was the second such calamity involving Boeing's 737 Max in less than six months.

An investigation by The Dallas Morning News found that one captain called the flight manual "inadequate and nearly criminally insufficient" months before Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau speaks about the grounding of all Boeing 737 Max 8 airplanes in Canada during a press conference in Ottawa on Wednesday. "They are working very, very hard right now, and hopefully they'll very quickly come up with the answer".

The president said that the USA worked in conjunction with Canada to make the decision to ground the planes.

The airline says some delays and cancellations will occur "as this is a very fluid situation".

So far, officials say the move has not significantly impacted Minneapolis-St.

US aviation authorities issued instructions to carriers following the Lion Air crash to update flight manuals with details for the flight crew on what to do if the plane's anti-stall system is erroneously triggered. "But until they do, the planes are grounded".

We talked to passengers headed to Ireland, Spain, and Toronto.

The MAX 8 and the new version, the MAX 9, can not fly in, out or over Canada and that has caused flight cancellations across the country including here in Calgary.

"Regardless of the enormous safety records of this plane 737, it has caused concern in the world of aviation and you know aviation is universal, whatever affects one affects the other because aircraft will be flying in and out".

Boeing says it still has full confidence in the safety of they 737 Max but recommended the FAA temporarily ground the flights out of an abundance of caution.

Seabrook anticipates West Jet will redeploy other planes in its fleet while the Max 8 planes - and the less-widely used Max 9 jets - are banned from Canadian and American airspace.
