also seeks big cuts to nondefense spending. for an airplane manufacturer of one crash is one crash too many but when the same model goes down twice in less than half a year filled with passengers and when that model happens to be your best seller one and when china grounds all of them well then you have boeing to not where the cost of keeping it seven thirty seven work course cash cow model in the air suddenly looks astronomically high i bring gulf in berlin this is the day. it is a firm you at a place which will take you out of the flow by. the seat of pride it's you have a new type of aircraft or have two accidents with seemingly similar set of circumstances we have grounded all and. be seventy seven

fastest selling plane in history five thousand on the order three hundred fifty in service each with a price tag of a hundred twenty one million u.s. dollars determining the cause of the crash is now about more than saving lives boeing shares saw their sharpest drop one day since two thousand and one our first report tonight takes us to the latest crash site. mannering the dead families and ethiopian pilots and crew remember the lives lost in sunday's crash. earlier at the crash site red cross workers retrieve the personal items of those on board while investigators recover the wreckage. a large crater marks the spot of impact eyewitnesses describe the horror of the crash and the aftermath the. fire was

coming out from its tail and then it tried to lift its nose but it couldn't was going from side to side it went straight into the ground nose first then exploded i'm not sure but they get. there were a lot of kenyans on it i saw identification documents of a university student from america could i mean i saw pictures of ethiopians and chinese people at the university i mean i got out of i live. in new york the united nations flag has been flying at half mast among the dead a twenty one united nation staff. a global treasure the as it's close to home and united nations is united in grief. i extend my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims to the government of people of each. and oh these affected by these these awesome. heathy opie and authorities are leading the search aided by the u.s.
3:07 am
kenya and others. the airline has announced its grounding at seven thirty seven max fleet and other countries are following suit the same boeing model crashed just five months ago in indonesia. as investigators look into the airplane's flight recorders people around the world are hoping for answers to why their loved ones didn't make it home. and for more on this now i'd like to bring in aviation commentator julian bray he joins us tonight from cambridge in the u.k. mr bray it's good to have you on the show the boeing seven thirty seven max eight version it be is considered the work course for many airlines and it's already received a lot of attention let me ask you would we be this concerned if we were looking at two crashes involving a different model or an air bus manufacturer aircraft i mean is there something special about the about what we're looking at with this boeing seven thirty seven
3:08 am
max. very interesting question because this particular aircraft was actually breaking all the rules it is in theory should be able to fly it's got too few changes right at the front of the aircraft well away from the wings not slung underneath the wing but just long in the front of the wing and so that means that the weight of the aircraft is totally different to any other aircraft and this is where the senate comes in or the computer that comes in because they installed a secret system called the n c a s and this was actually to prevent stalling when it's nice size in a school position so this secret computer system to make sure that the aircraft is level so the pilot can slow it down really it should be called a soul cheat system because the point is no aircraft but this configuration should
3:09 am
be and. what do you make of the federal aviation administration's announcement this evening that this model remains airworthy we've got that on one side on the other side of the planet we've got china and indonesia they grounded their entire fleet. yes in fact it's worse than that because china is now saying that there should be no. sawing chinese airspace they put a blanket ban on it and so it is a difficulty that's just the final straw right do you think is justified by trying to to put the blanket ban on the model. but you've got to remember that buying out to play they actually assemble these aircraft in china they got a zero tolerance policy when it comes to airline safety and so they've said for the
3:10 am
moment we will ground this aircraft to we find out what the size got happening and a lot of criticism because in the early days boeing didn't actually tell the pilot so this particular system was on board it's called an m c a s which is a bent taishan system basically they didn't want to blow the pilots up with too much information they gave me enough so they could actually fly the aircraft effectively but then. now this is not right we need to know exactly what is on board this aircraft and. if you like the detail of these systems was actually rolled out this is a fly by wire cross so it is a sears a computer systems society flying it if one system falls then another system is supposed to come in and pick it up and then obviously it did not happen in these
3:11 am
two crashes if it turns out that we're talking about a software problem here is that is that good news or bad news for but what i mean how easily can you correct it in order to keep this huge fleet all of these orders you know from being hansell. this is a problem because you've got cross and then you got marketing and you really have to last you so the marketing people i see much power should reason the other way that mock seeing trips. to the actually across design and rolled out so really what you call to decide is whether you're actually going to go to these wonderful marketing opportunities or whether you're going to make sure that the product you release is actually fully tested and ready for the market it does seem that this thing isn't quite right now i have to say this is pure speculation yes they sounded like it but they have not decoded them yet so we don't know once they
3:12 am
can do that they will find out exactly what happened on board that aircraft well you say that the chinese have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to. aircraft crashing and it's not that but the thing in the united states says these planes can still fly m m i'm reading you correctly are you saying that the chinese more than the americans tonight are erring on the side of caution. let's put it light is there's seven airlines in china and they've got about ninety four of these planes and it is also needs a decision if they've got nightfall planes so they're not too sure about the planes they want some ounces they want to quickly and the quickest way to get the answers is to say right well ground the whole logs get the engineers and get the eggs in and let us find out exactly what happens now first of all they've got the black
3:13 am
boxes filled because those that will be useful the only thing is in this way as a fire it drilled itself into the subsoil and this was a descent straight into the soil so to future engines were going all the time so really they must find out what is happening because you cannot carry passengers you cannot in danger passengers and crew you've got to find out what is the problem with this aircraft and certainly that is a problem having said that norwegian i've quite happily being flying these aircraft all summer and no problems at all so it is a real and they. almost. missed by we certainly appreciate your valuable insights tonight thank you. britain's briggs destiny could very well be decided this week or maybe not
3:14 am
beginning tomorrow members of parliament will vote on a series of questions about the u.k.'s departure from the european union on tuesday lawmakers will once again yes or no to the withdrawal plan negotiated by prime minister to resign may now keep in mind lawmakers rejected it two months ago in an unprecedented defeat for a sitting prime minister in the commons a repeat is expected tomorrow on wednesday lawmakers will then be asked to say yes or no to the possibility of a no deal breaks it parliament is expected to say no to no deal and that would bring this to thursday when parliament is scheduled to vote yes or no to a delay of breck's it and that vote is expected to pass remember in only eighteen days the u.k. is scheduled to begin exiting the european union and we still don't have a deal some call all of this kicking the bricks it can down the road others claim it's all happening according to teresa mayes plan there is no vote scheduled on
3:15 am
those suspicions at least not yet. we are committed to ratifying these before the twenty ninth of march it is not for the house of commons to take any important set of decisions this week tomorrow they'll be a vote in parliament m.p.'s can put that alternative idea. of arrangements in place they want to they when they can put concessions and additions to the deal but ultimately the tories maze deal will be voted on and the debate is by how much they will lose and the determine whether or not his mates can survive whether or not she can attend one more times with a deal back into the house of commons treason i need fact that her approach is not . as prime minister she needs to show leadership and reset the debate if it's defeated by a mixture of hard right people us getting people on the left on the left wings of
3:16 am
the labor party that is going to be the end of a deal probably and i mean that a new sort of arrangement is going to be negotiated with the european union and if she won't find a way forward then parliament has a responsibility to do so in stand things like nabeel things i currently exist as options and when you get rid of those options then that makes other things like a referendum or a softer break that a lot more likely and we hear of the commission remain open and willing to meet with u.k. negotiators at any time and those are the voices on the eve of these very important votes by the way british prime minister theresa may she spent part of this monday not in the u.k. but rather in strasbourg france seat of the european parliament a last minute meeting on the continent before her parliamentarians in london were to move away or not to move at all from the cot publicly that.

3:20 am
a rare and shocking act of violence here in germany which has seen only three school mass shootings since the one thousand nine hundred sixty three well a decade later relatives in survivors of winnenden still bear the emotional scars many of them are calling for tighter gun control. visiting the place where her daughter was gunned down ten years ago is still incredibly difficult for gisela meyer the day she heard the news of her daughter's death in the above you high. school her life changed forever. my world just fell apart it pulled the ground out from under my feet i absolutely couldn't grasp what happened and it took months for me to understand that she was done i kept resisting the very thought of it. her daughter nino was one of fifteen victims that a gunman shot at the school and during his askin she was
3:21 am
a student teacher in the school and buried under twenty fifth birthday. the seventeen year old shooter had stolen his father's gun from an unlocked bedroom cabinet in the end he killed himself. today this memorial room pays tribute to those who lost their lives in this former classroom the gunman shot the students at random. gisela meyer is active in the against violence in schools foundation to prevent such acts from ever happening again. one small step forward is stricter laws on private individuals storing firearms. trauma counselor i'll bet b. singer was one of the first on the scene after the shooting he helps students who had lived through the horrific experience process their emotions. was who i try to talk with them so they could process what they went through leading the mother to
3:22 am
that's a principle of trauma counseling has is altered courage people to express their feelings can because it's far more harmful to suppress them to let them cry and scream if they need to realize that it was minus five in in the decade since the shooting security measures in the school have been stepped up all doors are more difficult to open from the outside and teachers try to identify challenging students early on. the mission for example we have a school social worker people involved in the school we have a project name but social cohesion with and getting along with other. relatives of the victims try to somehow to go on with their lives. meyer has finally managed to find some inner peace. or taught this point child the shooter came across as a monster but he was really just a young boy if only because he didn't have to live in another city but that image of him really helps me understand what made him commit such an evil as the
