CVR and FDR have both been recovered.
Some international authorities have grounded Max 8s the FAA has just issued a continued airworthiness notice.
FR24 data stops short of the final crash site because they have limited coverage in the area.
It does appear the crew had initiated some sort of maneuver to return to airport.
Several eyewitnesses came forward. Some described white smoke. Others described seeing paper and clothing departing aircraft.
The aircraft appears to have never gained more than 1000 feet in altitude from origin - but this is based on very limited data.
