On Sunday, an Ethiopian Airlines flight carrying 157 passengers, including eight Americans, crashed, killing everyone on board. The plan, being flown by a veteran pilot, was Boeing’s new 737 Max 8, the same plane that crashed in Indonesia last October. China and Indonesia have already grounded all their 737 Max planes with other countries monitoring the situation.
