The U.S. and Canada have joined a growing list of countries that have banned the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, following two fatal crashes that took the lives of 346 people.

CBS reports that Canada's transport authority banned all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 planes from its airspace on Tuesday. A day later, the U.S. announced it would also be grounding the aircrafts.

President Trump told reporters at the White House that planes currently in the air will go their destinations, and then be grounded until further notice.

According to CNBC, the Federal Aviation Administration cited new satellite evidence showing that the flight track of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 was similar to the Lion Air flight that crashed in October.

According to CBS, investigators of the Lion Air crash believe pilots battled the aircraft's automated anti-stall system, which repeatedly pushed the plane's nose down, possibly due to wrong information from sensors.

Whether or not the same is true for the Ethiopian Airlines crash has yet to be determined.

CNBC reports that investigators have recovered Flight 302's black boxes, and will be sending them to France for analysis this week.

Over 40 countries and regions, including the EU, China, India, Australia, Mexico, and Brazil, had already grounded the 737 Max 8 and 9 due to safety concerns days before the U.S. decision.
