  • Is the Ethiopian Air crash a pilot error?
    ABC’s News Correspondent Alex Stone joins the show today to bring us the latest on the Boeing 737 Max aircraft. Apparently, there are different options on the aircraft when you buy it. The issue is the two of options that link to the angle of attack sensors. The reason why Lion Air went down was because the angle of attack sensor in the front of the plane malfunctioned. It brought the nose of the plane down, and the pilots didn’t know how to react. It is still not sure if Ethiopian Air had the same issue. They are currently analyzing the black box that has the data to tell us what happened during the crash. Do you think Ethiopian Air had the same issue?
