No survivors found in Mexico crash of jet carrying 13 people

All 13 people aboard were killed when a private jet crashed between the U.S. city of Las Vegas and Monterrey in northern Mexico, authorities said on Monday.

The wreckage of the plane was found via aerial surveillance in a remote mountainous zone in the northern municipality of Ocampo, the government of Coahuila state said in a statement.

A photograph published on local television network Milenio showed what it said were the burnt remnants of the plane, broken into pieces, spread over charred earth.

The Coahuila government said the flight plan listed 13 people on board. It said no survivors were found.

Mexican media reported that the passengers had been to a boxing match between Mexican boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and U.S. fighter Daniel Jacobs in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The nationalities of the victims were not immediately clear. The surnames of the three crew and 10 passengers published by the Coahuila government were all Hispanic.

The victims were aged between 57 and 19, according to a version of the passenger list published in Mexican media.

Newspaper Diario de Yucatan said on its website that among the victims were 55-year-old businessman Luis Octavio Reyes Dominguez, his wife, and their three children.

In a statement, Canada’s Bombardier identified the jet as a Challenger 601 and said the plane had gone missing about 150 nautical miles from the northern Mexican city of Monclova.

Expressing its condolences to the victims, the company said it had been in touch with Canada’s transportation safety board and would work with the investigating authorities.

Mexican broadcaster Televisa reported the twin-engine jet lost contact on Sunday with air traffic controllers sometime after 5:20 p.m. local time (2220 GMT) as the pilot descended to avoid a storm.

Francisco Martinez, an emergency services official in Coahuila, told Milenio recent adverse weather conditions would form part of the investigation into the crash. However, he stopped short of saying weather had caused it.

Berkshire Hathaway shareholders learn what it's like to fly a plane ahead of annual meeting

Attendees at a flight simulator display at the 2019 BHASM in Omaha, NE on May 3rd, 2019.

OMAHA, Neb. — Berkshire Hathaway shareholders got something they had never seen experienced before ahead of the conglomerate’s annual meeting: the chance to fly a fighter jet, virtually speaking.

FlightSafety International, a company that builds flight simulators to train commercial and military pilots, had its first exhibit at Berkshire’s shopping day in eight years. It featured about 10 simulators recreating what it’s like to fly different planes like the Northrop T-38 Talon, a fighter jet used by the Air Force for a long time.

The simulator uses a virtual-reality headset along with real-life flight control for the thrusters and turning. But the real kicker is the simulator’s blending of virtual reality and the real world, said Ed Koharik, vice president at FlightSafety International.

For example, users can look down and see their hands on the controls as well as their legs. “This gives it a more realistic feel than just putting on a pair of virtual reality goggles,” Koharik said. “This gives the pilot a better feel for the cockpit.”

As word of the showcase spread, the line to try the simulators out quickly swelled up to the point it bled out to the next exhibit.

Pope Francis on immigration: Political leaders ‘risk becoming prisoners of the walls they build’

Pope Francis said on Sunday that political leaders who want walls and other barriers to keep migrants out “will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build.” “Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build,” he said. “With fear, we will not move forward, with walls, we will remain closed within these walls,” he said on Sunday.

Pope Francis on immigration: Political leaders 'risk becoming prisoners of the walls they build'

Pope Francis said on Sunday that political leaders who want walls and other barriers to keep migrants out “will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build.”

The pope made his comments to reporters aboard the plane returning from Morocco in response to a question about migration in general and about U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to shut down the southern border with Mexico.

“Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build,” he said.

Francis, who did not mention Trump in his response, has sparred with the U.S. president before over migration, which was a theme of several questions on the plane as well as during the trip to Morocco.

Trump has declared a national emergency to justify redirecting money earmarked for the military to pay for his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“I realize that with this problem (of migration), a government has a hot potato in its hands, but it must be resolved differently, humanely, not with razor wire,” the Argentine-born pope said on the plane.

Addressing Moroccan leaders on Saturday, Francis said that problems of migration would never be resolved by physical barriers but instead required social justice and correcting the world’s economic imbalances.

“With fear, we will not move forward, with walls, we will remain closed within these walls,” he said on Sunday.

Besides the United States, migration has again risen to the fore of national political debates in a number of North African and European countries.

On the plane, Francis repeated some of the key points of his views on migration.

He said wealthy countries should help eliminate the root causes of migration such as poverty, war and political instability.

Migrants should be accepted, protected and integrated and if a country cannot handle the numbers, the migrants should be distributed among other countries, he said.

Investigators reportedly believe Boeing 737 Max anti-stall system activated before Ethiopia crash

Investigators looking into the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash involving a Boeing 737 Max plane are said to have reached a preliminary conclusion that an anti-stall system on board misfired, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Based on data retrieved from the flight’s black boxes, the stall prevention system — known as the MCAS, or Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System — activated automatically before the plane nose-dived into the ground, the Journal said, citing people briefed on the matter.

Those sources told the WSJ the preliminary finding is subject to revisions and one of the people said the U.S. government air-safety experts have been analyzing details gathered from the Ethiopian investigators.

Boeing did not immediately respond to a request for comments sent outside office hours.

Earlier this month, the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 bound for Nairobi crashed shortly after take-off, killing all passengers and crew members on board.

It was the second fatal incident involving a Boeing 737 Max — the plane manufacturer’s new, top-selling jet — since October when a Lion Air flight, which took off from the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, crashed into the sea.

“We’ve stood shoulder to shoulder in partnership with the Ethiopian team to grieve and extend our deepest sympathies to the families, friends and communities of the passengers and crew,” Muilenburg wrote in a statement released Monday.

Ethiopian Airlines said on Monday it would maintain ties with the U.S. plane maker despite questions and an investigation into its 737 Max 8 model, which was also involved in the Lion Air crash that killed 189 people in October.

Boeing is under intense scrutiny as federal investigators look into whether the plane maker provided incomplete or misleading information about the model to U.S. air-safety regulators.

The chief executive of Ethiopian airlines has said his company “believes in Boeing,” despite a tragic crash just over two weeks ago.

A Boeing 737 Max 8 plane killed all 157 people on board on March 10 just minutes into its flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi.

Questions over the Boeing plane have arisen amid similarities with the crash of a Lion Air 737 Max plane in Indonesia last October that killed 189 people.

“Let me be clear: Ethiopian Airlines believes in Boeing. They have been a partner of ours for many years,” Tewolde Gebremariam wrote in a statement Monday.

The executive added that he did not want to yet speculate on the cause of the Ethiopian crash but said the investigation was well underway and he expected to discover the truth.

Gebremariam also defended his airline’s training procedure, noting that Ethiopian pilots who flew the 737 Max 8 were fully trained on a service bulletin issued by Boeing and the Emergency Airworthiness Directive issued by the USA Federal Aviation Authority (FAA).

American Airlines is cancelling 90 flights a day as Boeing 737 Max remains grounded

American Airlines is cancelling 90 flights per day through April 24 as a result of the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max aircraft.

The airline, which had been flying 24 of the Boeing planes, said the cancellations were being made in an effort to provide more certainty and avoid last minute flight disruptions.

“By proactively canceling these flights, we are able to provide better service to our customers with availability and rebooking options,” American said in a statement.

American said it continues to await information from the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation, National Transportation Safety Board, other regulatory authorities and Boeing that would permit the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in its fleet to resume flying.

The Boeing 737 Max was grounded by aviation authorities across the world, including the FAA, after two similar crashes in recent months that have implicated a flight software system on the plane known as MCAS.

The Ethiopian Airlines jet that crashed on Mar. 10, killing all 157 aboard, and the Lion Air plane that went down in Indonesia on Oct. 29, which killed all 189 passengers and crew, were both 737 Max jets.

The two incidents have also led the Department of Transportation to ask for an audit of the Federal Aviation Administration’s approval of the 737 Max 8 planes, while the FBI has reportedly joined in a criminal investigation of the certification process for the jets.

As regulators and lawmakers continue to investigate the plane, Garuda Indonesia became the first airline to attempt to cancel its order for 737 Max planes on Friday, a deal worth nearly $6 billion.

American’s reservations team is contacting affected customers directly by email or telephone. “We know these cancellations and changes may affect some of our customers, and we are working to limit the impact to the smallest number of customers.”

US DOT probes FAA's approval of Boeing 737 Max planes in crashes: WSJ

The U.S. Department of Transportation is investigating whether there were lapses in the Federal Aviation Administration’s approval of Boeing planes involved in two recent fatal crashes, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

The DOT probe was launched after a new Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea in October last year, according to the Journal, which cited people familiar with the inquiry. None of the 189 people on board survived.

Earlier this month, on March 10, a second Boeing 737 Max 8 plane crashed shortly after take-off, killing all 157 people on board the Ethiopian Airlines plane. Ethiopian Transport Minister Dagmawit Moges said on Sunday that preliminary data retrieved from the plane’s flight data recorder showed “a clear similarity” with the Indonesian incident.

The Journal reported in an update to the article that a grand jury in Washington issued a broad subpoena one day after the Ethiopian Airlines crash to at least one person involved in the development of the Boeing 737 Max. The subpoena, which reportedly involves a prosecutor from the Justice Department, was said to seek relevant documents, such as emails and other messages.

It is not clear whether the probe by the Justice Department is related to the DOT’s investigation, according to the Journal report. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment which was sent outside U.S. office hours.

Shares of Boeing, a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, rose 1.52 percent to $378.99 on Friday but have fallen sharply from their 52-week high of $446.01 reached earlier this month.

The DOT investigation is concentrated on a flight safety system suspected of playing a role in the fatal crash in Indonesia, the Journal reported. The WSJ reported in November last year that Boeing failed to warn the airline industry about a potentially dangerous feature in its new flight-control system.

When contacted for comment on the Journal report, an FAA spokesman referred CNBC to the DOT instead. The transportation department did not immediately reply to CNBC’s request for comment, which was sent outside U.S. office hours.

After two fatal crashes in less than six months involving the same plane model, authorities around the world — including the U.S., Europe, China and Indonesia — grounded Boeing 737 Max planes.

For the full report on the DOT’s investigation, read The Wall Street Journal.
