Relatives of victims grieve on Thursday at the site where an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed shortly after takeoff on Sunday near Bishoftu, southeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The flight data and voice recorders of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft were delivered to France on Thursday after Ethiopia asked BEA for assistance in analyzing the jet's black boxes.

While experts say it is too soon to know what brought down the Boeing 737 MAX 8 on March 10, aviation authorities worldwide have grounded Boeing's 737 MAXs, as concerns over the plane caused the company's share price to tumble. All 157 people from 35 countries who were on board were killed.

The move came after a growing number of airlines and countries decided not to fly the planes or ban them from their airspace until it is determined there are no safety issues.

A voice from the cockpit of the Boeing BA.N 737 MAX requested to climb to 14,000 feet above sea level - about 6,400 feet above the airport - before urgently asking to return, the source told Reuters on condition of anonymity because the recording is part of an ongoing investigation. Ethiopian Airlines says its pilots received special training on the software.

Both major Canadian airlines relied heavily on the 737 Max planes, and warned the groundings would cause delays and disruptions as they deployed other aircraft.

At least four American pilots later complained of the same problem with the aircraft, according to documents reviewed by AFP on the Aviation Safety Reporting System, a voluntary incident database maintained by NASA.
