Three NTSB Investigators Sent to France to Assist Crash Investigation

Three investigators with expertise in recorders, flight crew operations, and human factors have been sent to France to assist with the downloading and analysis of flight recorders from the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 that crashed March 10 shortly after takeoff from the airport in Addis Ababa.

The National Transportation Safety Board sent three investigators to France on March 14 to assist with the downloading and analysis of flight recorders from the Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 that crashed March 10 shortly after takeoff from the airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. NTSB said the team members have expertise in recorders, flight crew operations, and human factors.

The French Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses (BEA) will be downloading the flight data recorder and cockpit voice recorder in support of the Ethiopian investigation, which is being led by the Ethiopian Aircraft Accident Investigations Bureau in accordance with the standards defined in International Civil Aviation Organization Annex 13.

NTSB appointed an accredited representative to the investigation under the ICAO standards because the airplane was manufactured in the United States. All investigative data regarding the investigation will be released by Ethiopian authorities. NTSB said its investigators dispatched to France will work in coordination with investigators on the ground in Addis Ababa; those employees were sent immediately after the accident and have been integral to the efforts under way in Ethiopia, and they are being assisted by technical advisers from the Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing, and GE/Safran, the manufacturer of the plane's engines.
