United States grounds all Boeing 737 Max planes

Planes that are in the air will be grounded.upon landing at the destination.

Boeing, which maintained that its planes were safe to fly, said in a statement that it supported the latest FAA move. "They are working very, very hard right now and hopefully they'll very quickly come up with the answer, but until they do, the planes are grounded", he said.

Rescue workers carry wreckage at the crash site of Ethiopia Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 en route to Nairobi, Kenya, near Bishoftu, Ethiopia. "We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again".

The Federal Aviation Administration initially said it did not believe there was any reason to ground the Max 8s.

More than 50 countries, including the United States, Canada, China and most in Europe, ...

United Airlines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines Co all fly versions of the 737 MAX and immediately halted flights on Wednesday.

United President Scott Kirby likes to say the average major airline will see several unexpected events each year.

Canada's action followed confirmation that the pilot of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 reported internal control problems, while pilots in the US filed at least five complaints in recent months about the aircraft model.

Safety experts cautioned against drawing too many comparisons too soon with that Lion Air crash in October in Indonesia that killed 189 people. Nearly all major countries in the world banned the aircraft by the end on Wednesday leaving U.S. and Canada.

The Ethiopian plane's flight data and voice recorders will be sent to France for analysis, Elwell said.

Transport Canada announced Wednesday it will ground the Boeing 737 Max fleet following fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, leaving tens of thousands of travellers scrambling ahead of spring break to rebook flights. But October's Lion Air crash in Indonesia sparked a debate on automation, particularly over a software system created to push the plane down to stop a stall during flight.

Pilots of both planes had to correct their planes' trajectories repeatedly after the automatic control systems aimed the nose downward.

Paedo Pell gets six years
His conviction has rocked the Catholic Church, where he had been one of the Pope's closest advisers. Pell maintained his innocence throughout and has filed an appeal, which is set to be heard in June.

Southwest Airlines, which operates more than half of flights in and out of Sacramento, has 34 of the Max 8 jets in its 750-craft fleet.

"At this point we feel that threshold has been crossed and that is why we are taking these measures", Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau said.

Earlier Tuesday, Canada banned the new Boeing 737-Max 8 aircraft, which has crashed twice in fewer than five months, killing almost 350 people.

The groundings will have a far-reaching financial impact on Boeing, at least in the short term, said John Cox, a veteran pilot and CEO of Safety Operating Systems. Both planes crashed shortly after takeoff.

Stacy Sternberg, 53, a scientist who lives in Chicago and Las Vegas, tried not to think about the model of plane she was on, but said turbulence reminded her during the flight.

Growing numbers of countries have banned the model from their airspace or grounded fleets since Sunday's crash.

Winter Storm Brings Heavy Snow and High Winds Across Central US
Some areas could see gusts as strong as 100 miles per hour , which is equivalent to the wind speed of a Category 2 hurricane. The weather service office in Midland/Odessa, Texas, said Wednesday could be 'the windiest day in years, USA Today reported.
