NEW YORK: Flight recorder data recovered from the wreckage of Boeing 737 MAX planes that crashed in Ethiopia and Indonesia shows “clear similarities,” Addis Ababa said Sunday as the US maker announced it was finalizing a software update for its under fire anti-stall system, reports AFP.

Pressure was mounting meanwhile on the US Federal Aviation Administration, which insisted it had followed standard procedures in certifying the plane model, even as it was reported to have come under investigation by the Department of Transport.

“The 737 MAX certification program followed the FAA’s standard certification process,” the agency said in an email to AFP.

It said its procedures were “well established and have consistently produced safe aircraft designs.”
