More Software Issues Found With Boeing 737 Max Jets

June 27, 2019

Don't look for the Boeing 737 Max jets to be back in flight anytime soon. On Wednesday, Boeing revealed that the FAA had found another software problem (or, as they put it, “identified an additional requirement”) that needs fixing. Test pilots found that incorrect sensor readings during simulations caused the plane's nose to dive down automatically. “Boeing agrees with the FAA’s decision and request, and is working on the required software to address the FAA’s request,” the company said in a statement. According to the Associated Press, the additional fixes might extend the plane's grounding for an additional one to three months.
