President Donald Trump announced the US is grounding all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 planes three days after a deadly crash in Ethiopia involving one of the aircrafts.
Trump said they were going to issue an emergency order of prohibition to ground all flights of the 737 Max 8 and the 737 Max 9 and planes associated with that line.
He added the grounding would be in place “until further notice” and that the Federal Aviation Authority had received new information, including physical evidence from the site of the crash in Ethiopia.
Trump said pilots and airlines have been notified and any affected planes currently in the air will be grounded upon landing.
