Boeing 737 Max 8 Grounded, Allegedly Lacking Key Safety Features


Boeing
In October 2018, Lion Air flight 610 tragically crashed in Indonesia, killing 189 passengers and crew.

In the wake of two tragic crashes of flights involving Boeing's 737 Max 8 -- one in Indonesia in October 2018 and more recently, the March 2019 crash in Ethopia -- over 80 countries and dozens of airlines have grounded or banned the airplane from international air spaces. In addition to an investigation by the FAA, the FBI has allegedly launched a criminal investigation. Sources report that several key safety features -- involving software and sensors that indicate the angle of the plane's nose -- were lacking on these planes because they were being sold by Boeing as "extra features" and were not required by regulatory authorities with oversight of the planes.
