ADDIS ABABA: Ethiopian crash investigators have tentatively concluded that the crash of a Boeing Co 737 MAX last year was caused by the plane’s design, Bloomberg News reported on Friday (Mar 6), citing a draft report being circulated to participants in the probe.

The conclusions say little or nothing about the performance of Ethiopian Airlines or its flight crew and that has raised concern with some participants in the investigation, Bloomberg News said, citing people familiar with the matter.

It is possible the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which has received a copy of the draft interim report, could request changes or offer a dissenting opinion, Bloomberg News said.

Boeing, NTSB and Ethiopian Airlines did not respond to a request for comment. Ethiopian Transport Ministry could not immediately be reached.

A preliminary accident report by Ethiopian authorities released in April last year said faulty sensor readings and multiple automatic commands to push down the nose of a Boeing plane contributed to the fatal crash.

The Boeing 737 MAX has been grounded worldwide for nearly a year after the fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, which killed 346 people.

  1. It should be crystal clear to all about the fact that buying a GERD bond from any part of the world is not illegal, it does not necessarily constitute to any sort of crime or misdoings per the dignified legal experts who assure it through their relentless extensive studies which they regularly carry out focusing particularly about the GERD bond sales.

      We know we can do what we want with our money , the problem is we do not have enough money to do so since there are more dire problems that require money nearby that had been neglected for too long that are stacking up too much. It should be noted that a starved person is an angry person for life . A coverage of A Mother of two from Ethiopia who got shot and killed in San Francisco California USA by two males this year in January 2020 just three months after she gave birth to her second child is yet to be released , the story that the killers admitted to the killing of the 32 years old mother of two originally from the former state of Ethiopia , she left to USA before Eritrea got independent from Ethiopia, while Eritrea was under Ethiopia, until now no charges of murder are filed against the killers by the USA government authorities for her death only illegal gun possession charges were filed against her killers.

      The international communities should know that denying Ethiopians water and their chance of being self reliant with food got so many unforseen negative consequences not only to Ethiopia but to the whole world since Children who grow up malnourished witnessing starvation related disasters got less stamina throughout their lifetime .

      A former Ethiopian famine victim who as a little child witnessed the death loosing of her parents to the Ethiopian famine starvation in the state of Eritrea which is now an independent country , who later got adopted and moved to USA later ended up having two children of her own with the second child just three months old at the two males shot and killed bher in public outside on the street with many people watching the two male individuals with no remorse killing her just a couple of months ago in January 2020 in the streets of the Metropolitan City of San Francisco , California USA , ingniteing one of the most controversial legal conflicts since the killers are not charged with murder but charged the admitting killers with only gun charges since these Ethiopian lady was a former famine victim in the former Ethiopian State of Eritrea who terrorized the two males that were charged with only gun charges even if they admitted to killing the 32 years Ethiopian who was born from Eritrean family , the two men claimed they feared for their life before they shot and killed Emma Hunt so no murder charge is being filed for this 32 years old Ethiopian mother of two despite the Ethiopian Eritrean Community continuous outcry to charge the killers with murder the prosecutor is inclined to not charge them with murder saying she acted threatening towards the two male individuals exhibiting her African sides of when she grew up fending for herself and her younger sister homeless in Ethiopia after her parents died of starvation famine .

  2. During the TPLF era Metec Conglomerate had manufactured and sold to numerous Amara region Ethiopian farmers the Metec manufactured farm tractors which was known to be crashing ending up broken-down to the degree of unfixable totally unusable stage thus causing severe loss to the farmers that hurt many Amara regions farmers, all these was caused due to design problems.

    The TPLF polit bureau current CEO of Metec Mrs. Azeb Mesfin who also happens to be the widow of the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi currently is not willing to admit the loss and pay the court ordered compensation to those who suffered the loss the Amara farmers to elevate the moral , physical and financial problems which the farmers families suffered due to the Metec tractors design failure. A class action lawsuits is the only way to get Metec to pay as a class action lawsuits is the only way to make Boeing pay.
