A screw-like device discovered by investigators in the wreckage of the Boeing 737 Max that crashed in Ethiopia last Sunday indicates that the plane was configured to dive when it plummeted to the ground after take-off.

The horror crash killed all 157 people on board and prompted countries around the world to ground Boeing jets.

The article goes on to state the following:

It has now been revealed that the discovery of the screw-like device at the scene finally convinced US officials to also ground the jet model.

The so-called jackscrew is used to set the trim that raises and lowers the plane’s nose, according to a person involved in the investigation.

The source, who wishes to remain anonymous, added that the investigation found the device was configured to push the nose down.

This, combined with a newly obtained satellite flight track of the plane, convinced the American Federal Aviation Authority that there were similarities with the Ethiopia crash and an October 29 crash of the same Max model off the coast of Indonesia.
