The crash sounds like pilots didn't use the new flight system right...

But now the Grounding is a multiple nation gang up on Boeing to lower the stock....China retaliation I think...

I just thought there may be something nefarious going on:

Boeing Secures Deals Worth $15 Billion With Vietnam's Bamboo Airways And Vietjet As The Two Carriers Seek To Grow Their Operations Further.
FSMNews

US planemaker Boeing Co. secured deals to provide aircrafts to Vietnamese airlines Bamboo Airways Co. Ltd. and VietJet Aviation JSC, as the companies seek for bigger operations in Asia and beyond.

The two carriers formally announced on Wednesday that they will be purchasing a total of 110 planes worth $15.7 billion from Boeing, with 10 orders of the wide-bodied 787-9 Dreamliner for Bamboo and 100 of the 737 Max for VietJet. The orders were valued at $2.9 billion and $12.7 billion respectively.

I'm sure the negotiations for this deal have been going on for months. Sabotage? 1dunno1

There have been rumbles out there. Along with a post over in the Q thread that tied supplementary tech to the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock. All I smell there is Raytheon. But let's think about who gains the most if Boeing's credibility is brought into court. Just MHO, but if I were looking for suspects, I'd have to look at Airbus. They've been jilted in a couple of yuuuge contracts with our military that Boeing picked up.

This was a brand new plane, there should be nothing wrong with it but they said on the news tonight there might have been an explosion. Well if there was, then for sure there was something nefarious.

They found the black boxes

Three countries — Ethiopia, China and Indonesia — grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 jets on Monday, a day after 157 people were killed when an Ethiopian Airline flight bound for Kenya crashed shortly after takeoff in Addis Ababa.
The jet was the same make and model as the plane that crashed off Indonesia last year, killing all 189 people aboard.

Ethiopian Airlines said its move to ground its Max 8 jets was intended as an "extra safety precaution." It also announced Monday that the aircraft's black boxes — the flight data and cockpit voice recorders — had been recovered.

Sabotage or Tragic Accident? Plane carrying 50 delegates to the UN Environmental Assembly in Nairobi crashes, killing all 157 aboard

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/for...ead=118928

First British victim of Ethiopian Airlines flight named as environment campaigner, 36, as jet's erratic last seconds are revealed after it crashed killing seven Brits and 150 others attend

• Animal welfare campaigner Joanna Toole, 36, was one of seven British victims of the Ethiopian Airlines crash
• Flight ET302 took off from Ethiopia on Sunday morning at 8.38am local time and was flying to Nairobi
• State broadcasters said 'no survivors' on the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 which has been in use since July
• Families arriving at the airports in Kenya and Ethiopia after the plane crashed just six minutes after take-off
• As many as 50 delegates heading to the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi believed to be on the plane

Seven British nationals were onboard the plane at the time, while there were eighteen Canadians, eight Americans and 32 Kenyan nationals.

As many as 50 delegates are believed to have been on the plane heading to the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi, which begins tomorrow.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres confirmed there were UN staff on board, offering his 'heartfelt condolences' to their families.

The plane came down near Bishoftu, Ethiopia, 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of the capital. A witness told the BBC it took rescuers until 11am to arrive.

Witness Bekele Gutema said: 'The blast and the fire were so strong that we couldn't get near it. Everything is burnt down.'
