Watch the crash animation of Ethiopian Airlines: The reason Malta closed its airspace to Boeing 737 MAX

The video shows the crash animation of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 Boieng 737 MAX plane. It is not exactly what happened, it is only a simulated flight crash for Ethiopian airlines flight ET302. 

This crash is what led countries in Europe to ground the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft over lack of definite information following the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday. Malta has joined in closing the airspace for Boeing 737 MAX as of 8pm on Tuesday following a recommendation by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency.

Malta’s decision has been taken following a communication by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). “At this early stage of the related investigation, it cannot be excluded that similar causes may have contributed to both events…Based on all available information, EASA considers that further actions may be necessary to ensure the continued airworthiness of the two affected models,” EASA said in an Emergency Airworthiness Directive on Tuesday. 

“For the reasons described above, pending the availability of more information, EASA has decided to suspend all flight operations of the two affected models.” The directive applies to Boeing 737-8 MAX and 737-9 MAX aircraft.
