BEA air accident investigators will today try to retrieve information from the cockpit voice and flight data recorders, which were damaged in the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 disaster.  Ethiopian Airlines, Africa’s largest carrier, sent the black boxes to France because it does not have the equipment to analyze the data.  The Federal Aviation Administration in the United States has grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 models, following the lead of numerous other countries, pointing to new satellite data suggesting similarities between the Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday and a crash in Indonesia in October.  Gerry Byrne, aviation journalist, joined Ivan to outline what could have caused these crashes.
