Flight data recorders of Boeing 737 MAX planes that crashed in Ethiopia and Indonesia show "clear similarities", Ethiopia's transport minister said Sunday as the U.S. maker announced it was completing a software update for its anti-stall system.
埃塞俄比亚交通部长莫吉斯（Dagmawit Moges）星期天说，在埃塞俄比亚和印度尼西亚坠毁的波音737 MAX的飞行数据记录器显示两起事件有“明显的相似。”与此同时，美国波音公司宣布，即将完成防失速系统软件的更新。
Dagmawit Moges told reporters that the so-called black box from Flight 302 were recovered “in good condition that enabled us to extract almost all the data inside.”
He did not elaborate on what the similarities were.
Moges said that a preliminary report on last week's plane crash, which left 157 people dead, would be released within 30 days.
Meanwhile, pressure has been mounting on the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration about the safety of the aircraft. The agency has insisted it had followed standard procedures in certifying the Boeing 737 MAX model. It has been reported, however, that the Department of Transportation was investigating those procedures.
Even before the black box of last week's plane was discovered, many had drawn parallels between the Ethiopia Airlines' crash on March 10, and the Lion Air crash last October, both of which were Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes.
即使在上个星期坠机的黑匣子尚未被找到之前，已经有很多人将3月10日埃航和去年10月份印尼狮航的这两起坠机事件相提并论，两者都是波音737 MAX 8飞机。
The crash of Ethiopian Flight 302 shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa for Nairobi, prompted the U.S. and more than 30 other countries to ground the Boeing 737 Max 8 fleet.
从的斯亚贝巴起飞前往内罗毕的埃航302航班在起飞后不久坠毁。这次事件促使美国和另外30多个国家停飞了所有波音737 MAX 8机型。
Meanwhile, thousands marched in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, accompanying 17 empty caskets at funerals held on Sunday for the 17 Ethiopians killed in the crash.
Families of the victims were offered charred earth from the crash site to bury.
Ethiopian Airlines aviation staff gathered Sunday at Bole International Airport to remember the two pilots and six crew members on the flight who died in the crash.
The flight was also carrying 21 U.N. staff members, who were on their way to attend a major U.N. Environment Conference in Nairobi when the plane went down.
