China, Indonesia ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleets after Ethiopia crash

China and Indonesia grounded their fleets of Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 aircraft on Monday in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines plane which crashed on Sunday killing 157 people. While the 737 line, which has flown for more than 50 years, is the world’s best selling modern passenger aircraft, questions are emerging on the security of the MAX 8 variant.

Let pilots have control over the aircraft you retards, not everything has to be managed by a computer!
