Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed in March shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport in Ethiopia.

The first plane, Lion Air Flight 610, ditched into the Java Sea 12 minutes after taking off from Jakarta, Indonesia, on October 29 past year.

Gebremariam said it's not enough for Boeing to only review the "MCAS" anti-stall system believed responsible for the fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The findings reveal how the aircraft's problematic flight-control system - whose catastrophic malfunctions have caused two fatal crashes since last October - made it through the FAA's approval process despite ongoing safety issues.

Sources told the Journal that the FAA's investigation didn't find evidence that Boeing officials deliberately provided incorrect data to the FAA, but it's not known what safety information Boeing provided to the agency before the MAX was approved.
