B737

Let's accept for a moment that, good as it is, data from commercial flight-tracking services is not 100% authoritative. But it is certainly extremely persuasive. The data that was made available immediately after the crash of Ethiopian Airways flight 302 showed a remarkable similarity to similar data published after the crash of Lion Air JT610. As more and more countries banned B787 MAX, the FAA supported Boeing. Boeing said "we stand by our aircraft." Then even more compelling evidence of similarity between the crashes emerged.

News is breaking as we write of the loss of flight JT610, a Boeing 737 Max 8, the Seattle company's latest variant of its most popular aircraft. The aircraft operated by Lion Air, which has one of the newest fleets of aircraft in the industry, left Jakarta a short while ago and disappeared over the sea en route to Pangkal Pinang in the Bangka Belitung Islands.
