Ethiopia released on Friday its latest findings into a plane crash in 2019 that killed all 157 people on board.

The plane’s angle-of-attack sensor failed shortly after takeoff, said Dagmawit Moges, Ethiopia’s Minister of Transport and Communications, according to an investigation report.

“A system malfunction to improve manoeuvrability caused the accident,” she said.

Moges added that all crew members have licenses, certifications and qualifications to operate the aircraft according to Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority standards.

Lockdowns imposed by countries around the world over the COVID-19 pandemic have delayed the release of the research report, Moges said. In March 2019, an Ethiopian Airlines ET 302 Boeing 737-8 Max on the road to Nairobi, Kenya, crashed, killing all 157 people from 35 countries. The plane crashed six minutes after takeoff.
