Boeing is in one of its most serious ever crises following the crashes of two 737 Max aircraft that killed everyone on board. It’s facing several lawsuits and a criminal investigation.
The US aviation safety agency FAA is not yet satisfied with Boeing's software fixes after two recent crashes of the 737 MAX 8. However, several US airlines have prepared for the return of the jet to their fleets.
The aircraft experienced problems shortly after taking off from Orlando International Airport. Boeing is fighting to save the 737 MAX's reputation after two fatal crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia.
Plane crashes are rare. Crashes involving brand-new aircraft are even rarer. Yet one of Boeing's newest aircraft models has crashed twice within two years of its launch.
A preliminary report on the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX airplane says pilots followed recommended emergency procedures but were unable to control the jet.
