China ordered all domestic flight to ground flight type 737 Max 8 after the Ethiopian Airline flight tragedy. The officials said similarly few months ago Indonesia Lion Air that crashed, killing all on board was the same type of aircraft.
China’s Civil Aviation Administration said there were no similarities between the incidents in Ethiopia and Indonesia but the administration has decided to take precautions.
