Crash victim DNA tests to take up to six months, says Ethiopian Airlines

Ethiopian Airlines said Saturday (March 16) that DNA testing of the remains on the 157 passengers killed on board flight 302 May take up to six months.

It's offered bereaved families charred earth to bury from the plane crash site.

A team of investigators in Paris has begun examining the black box recorders, recovered from the site where the Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane crashed last week shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa.

Initial conclusions are expected in a few days.

In the meantime, Boeing is planning to release upgraded software for its 737 MAX in the next week to 10 days, sources say.

The U.S. plane maker has been working on a software upgrade for an anti-stall system and pilot displays in the wake of the deadly Lion Air crash in Indonesia in October, which killed 189 people.

Similarities between the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes have raised fresh questions about the system.

But so far there's no evidence to suggest the software was to blame for either incident.

All Boeing MAX jets have now been grounded worldwide because of concerns about parallels between the two crashes.

On Friday (March 15) investigators found a possible clue at the crash site: a key part of the plane's tail.

The horizontal stabilizer is reportedly set in an unusual position -- similar to that seen in the wreckage of the Indonesian MAX 8.

The position of the stabilizer could help determine whether the plane was set nose down for a steep dive.

For grieving families, answers can't come soon enough.
