"The loss of ET302 on March 10th raises interesting questions about similarities with the loss of LionAir’s 737 MAX last fall. And the reaction by civil aviation authorities today in grounding their respective countries’ 737 MAX aircraft causes concerns about these same aircraft in use in Canada.”–John Gradek
