  埃塞俄比亚航空公司失事航班ET302救援工作11日进入第二天。11日,埃航官方宣布,失事客机的两个黑匣子均已找到,接下来他们将就事故原因展开调查。

  Both the digital flight data recorder (DFDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR) on the crashed aircraft that killed all 157 aboard on Sunday have been recovered, Ethiopian Airlines said Monday in a statement.

  ‍A Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board.

  A total of 149 passengers and eight crew members were on the Boeing 737 Max 8 commercial aircraft.

  China, Indonesia and Ethiopia have grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft following the deadly crash on Sunday.

  The company on Monday announced that it has indefinitely grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 jets following the fatal crash as an "extra safety precaution." Chinese aviation regulators have also ordered domestic airlines to suspend operations of all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes.

  People from 35 countries were aboard, with Kenyan nationals making up the largest number of passengers on board, 32 in total.

  The Boeing 737 Max-8 plane went down at 08:44 a.m. local time, six minutes after taking off.

  It's not yet known what caused the crash, but the carrier said the pilot had reported difficulties and asked for permission to return.

  After the deadly crash, a Chinese firm, the China Railway Seventh Group (CRSG), assisted in the rescue work by quickly mobilizing large-scale equipment.

  The search for bodies is still underway and the "black box," the jetliner's flight data recorder, or black box, has not been found yet.

  Who are the victims?

  According to the breakdown of nationalities given out by the airline and a Kenyan transport official, 18 Canadians and nine Ethiopians were killed, as were eight passengers each from China, Italy, and the U.S.

  根据该航空公司和一名肯尼亚交通官员提供的国籍分类,18名加拿大人和9名埃塞俄比亚人遇难,中国、意大利和美国各有8名乘客遇难。

  Britain and France each had seven people on board, Egypt six, the Netherlands five and India four. Four were UN passport-holders.

  英国和法国各有7人,埃及6人,荷兰5人,印度4人。其中四人持有联合国护照。

  The airlines also said four people were using UN passports and it's not yet clear what their nationalities were.

  航空公司还表示,有四人使用联合国护照,目前尚不清楚他们的国籍。

  What happened?

  The flight ET302 lost contact at 8:44 a.m. local time around Ethiopia's Bishoftu town, six minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa's Bole International Airport at 8:38 a.m. en route to the Kenyan capital.

  这架ET302航班于当地时间上午8点44分在埃塞俄比亚比斯霍夫图镇附近失去联系。6分钟前,这架飞机于上午8点38分从亚的斯亚贝巴的Bole国际机场起飞,飞往肯尼亚首都。

  The plane was reportedly delivered to the airline four months ago.

  据报道,这架飞机是四个月前交付给该航空公司的。

  Swedish flight-tracking website flightradar24 said on Twitter that the crashed aircraft, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 "had unstable vertical speed" after taking off.

  瑞典飞行跟踪网站flightradar24在Twitter上表示,坠毁的飞机是一架波音737 MAX 8飞机,起飞后“垂直速度不稳定”。

  Boeing said it will provide technical assistance to the investigation.

  波音公司表示,将为调查提供技术援助。

  The Boeing 737 MAX 8 is the same type of plane in the Indonesian Lion Air jet crash which killed the 189 people on board in October last year.

  去年10月印尼雄狮航空公司(indonesia Lion Air)的一架飞机坠毁,机上189人遇难。

  Ethiopia Airlines has a reputation of being one of the best airlines in Africa, boasting a good safety record and the newest fleet of planes on the continent, according to its website.

  埃塞俄比亚航空公司的网站显示,该公司拥有非洲最好的航空公司之一的声誉,拥有良好的安全记录和非洲大陆最新的飞机机队。

  The last major crash involving an Ethiopian Airlines passenger plane was in January 2010, when a flight from Beirut went down shortly after take-off, killing 83 passengers and seven crew members.

  上一次埃塞俄比亚航空公司客机坠毁事件发生在2010年1月,当时一架从贝鲁特起飞的飞机在起飞后不久坠毁,造成83名乘客和7名机组人员死亡。
