Pilot of crashed Ethiopian Airlines jet reported flight control problems

Greek saved from plane crash by being late

Flight ET302 crashed just minutes after it took off Sunday morning.

A man who said he barely missed the doomed Ethiopian Airlines flight took to Facebook to share an emotional post about his experience.

Flight 302 to Nairobi, Kenya went down minutes after takeoff from Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa.

This is the second crash involving a Boeing 737 MAX 8 in just under five months and questions are now being asked.

However, the US Association of Flight Attendants-CWA union is now calling for the Federal Aviation Administration "to temporarily ground the 737 Max fleet in the US out of an abundance of caution".

Even as many passengers sought reassurances from travel agents that they would not be flying on a 737 MAX, the United States held out against suspension and Boeing continued to affirm its "full confidence" in the model.

Possibly presaging a raft of claims, Norwegian Air said it would seek recompense for lost revenue and extra costs after grounding its 737 MAX aircraft.

He said he was put onto the next flight to Nairobi and only found out about the crash later on.

President Donald Trump blasted the state of NY and Governor Andrew Cuomo as the latest "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSERS" earlier tonight. Maxine Waters, a Democrat and head of the House Financial Services Committee, said last week that the bank is cooperating.


"At this point, based on the information available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators", Charlie Miller, Boeing's vice president of communications, said in a statement.

The CEO, however, admitted that the similarities between the two crashes were glaring, considering both planes were new and they both crashed moments after take-off.

Boeing has said it has full confidence in the 737 MAX - a model that has 371 jets in operation around the world.

"We discussed the departure at length and I reviewed in my mind our automation setup and flight profile but can't think of any reason the aircraft would pitch nose down so aggressively", one pilot said.
