Canada Bans US Jet Model Involved in Ethiopian Crash

Canada has banned from its airspace the model of an American-made jetliner that crashed and killed 157 people Sunday, leaving the United States as the world's most high-profile country to continue to allow the aircraft to remain in service. 


The new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft has crashed twice in less than five months, killing nearly 350 people.
