Black Box From Crashed Ethiopian Airline Arrives Paris For Investigation

The black box from the doomed Ethiopian Airlines that could solve the mystery of the crash has arrived in Paris for investigation today.

The contents of the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder are expected to provide critical details about what caused the disaster that left 157 dead on Sunday.

This afternoon, the grieving family of pilot Yared Mulugeta Getachew wept as they gathered at the scene of the tragedy. Getachew, 29, had been described by the airline as an experienced aviator with more than 8,000 flight hours.

It comes after the US  Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued orders for the Boeing 737 Max 8 jet model involved to be grounded.

This followed the lead of other global aviation regulators unnerved by the second crash involving the same type of plane in less than five months. 

Long queues were seen at airports in Toronto and Vancouver after Air Canada had to re-book passengers onto new flights as the flight ban came in to force.

On Thursday morning in Addis Ababa, grieving relatives of the 157 victims of Sunday's air disaster boarded buses for a three-hour journey to the crash site in a field 37 miles outside the Ethiopian capital.

'We saw where he died and touched the earth,' said Sultan Al-Mutairi, who had come from Riyadh to mourn his brother, Saad, who perished in the crash.
