The pilot of Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 302 had “flight control problems” shortly before the fatal crash, the company’s chief executive has told CNN.
CEO Tewolde GebreMariam told CNN’s Richard Quest on Tuesday that a recorded conversation with air traffic control detailed the final moments of the flight.
“He was having difficulties with the flight control of the airplane, so he asked to return back to base,”
He said Ethiopian Airlines has grounded its fleet of MAX 8s, along with other countries, including China, Australia and the United Kingdom.
“We don’t yet know the exact cause of the accident, and speculation is not helpful in either way,” Mr GebreMariam said, “but I think there are questions without answers on the airplane.”
