Ethiopian accident investigators have not identified any damage to the aircraft’s sensors that could have contributed to the March 10 crash. 

“We can confirm that we haven’t found any foreign object damage,” Colonel Amdeye Fenta, chief of Ethiopian Accident Information Bureau, told reporters at a news conference on Thursday, speaking through a translator. 

He also said investigators have not identified any “structural design problem” with the aircraft. 

Dagmawit Moges, the Ethiopian Minister of Transport, said investigators have reviewed the cockpit voice and flight data recorders, as well as records such as “additional documents gathered from the operator” of the plane.
