Black box found among wreckage of doomed Ethiopian Airlines plane

Investigators have already recovered the black box recorders from the doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight that killed all 157 people on board.

This, as passengers and governments grow increasingly nervous about MAX 8 aircraft, prompting many airlines companies and regulators to temporarily ban its use.

One of the recorders was partially damaged from the impact, an airline official said, adding that they have yet to determine the amount of information that can be retrieved from the black box.

Ethiopian Airlines is hoping that the flight recorders will provide necessary information that would help piece together the final minutes before the crash, which many witnesses described as “horrific sight” of the Boeing 737 before it crashed outside of Addis Ababa.

According to witnesses, the plane was making a strange rattling noise as debris and smoke filled the sky above cattle fields before finally hitting the ground.

 A spokesman says Ethiopian Airlines has grounded all its Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft as a safety precaution, following the crash in which 157 people were killed. Picture: Source:AP
