Boeing 737 Max jets were grounded worldwide following the incident in Ethiopia and another deadly crash months earlier in Indonesia. 

Preliminary reports from the accidents suggest a technical issue involving the planes' Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System software was a factor in both crashes.

While Boeing develops a software fix, major airlines in the U.S. have decided to ground the aircraft through August.
