Investigators have found the cockpit voice recorder and digital flight data recorder but it will be a while before the findings are made public.

Inside Story: How safe is Boeing's 737 Max 8 aircraft?

All 157 people on board - 149 passengers and eight crew - died in the crash.

Three U.S. airlines - United, American and Southwest - operate a total of 72 Max aircraft, a relatively small portion of their fleets, according to the Wall Street Journal.

On Wednesday, US authorities said new evidence showed similarities between the Ethiopia crash and that of a Lion Air flight in Indonesia in October that claimed the lives of 189 people.

France's air accident investigation agency BEA will analyse black-box flight recorders from a Boeing 737 MAX 8 which crashed near Addis Ababa on Sunday, a spokesman said.

House votes to release Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report
The Democratic-backed resolution , which passed 420-0, comes as Mueller appears to be nearing an end to his investigation. It also calls for the full report to be released to Congress.

The BEA notably helps with investigations in countries without the resources or equipment to analyse the flight recorders, often called the black boxes.

Jennifer Sweetland, a spokesperson for the airport, said no carriers use Boeing 737 Max 8 or Max 9 planes on flights serving Syracuse.

The Boeing 737 Max has been the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing's history, with more than 4,500 ordered by 100 different operators globally.

The manufacturer said it would continue its production rate of 52 aircraft per month, but its MAX fleet would not be delivered to airlines or leasing companies.

However, the FAA said this week it had mandated that Boeing update its flight software and training on the aircraft.

Investigators looking into the Indonesian crash are examining whether the software automatically pushed the plane's nose down repeatedly, and whether the Lion Air pilots knew how to solve that problem by throwing toggle switches and cancelling the automated nose-down commands.

A defiant Carlson opened his show Monday night railing against the liberal mob. "We've always apologized when we're wrong, and we'll continue to do that".

The accounts of the recent crashes were echoed in concerns registered by U.S. pilots on how the MAX 8 behaves.

Experts say other possible causes of the crashes are being investigated, including other malfunctioning systems and pilot error.

Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 planes will remain grounded for "weeks" at a minimum until a software upgrade could be tested and installed in all of the planes, USA lawmakers said on Thursday.

US, home of Boeing - the world's largest aircraft maker, was one of the last countries where the plane model was still allowed to operate.

The delayed flight ET302 took off from Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa at 08:38 local time (05:38 GMT) and was bound for Kenyan capital Nairobi.
