Boeing testing software changes to 737 MAX planes


Pilots from the three American carriers that fly the Boeing 737 MAX planes tested software changes developed by the company to a key stabilisation system, a media report said on Monday.

The changes are intended to decrease the chances of triggering the Manoeuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) which is believed to have played a role in the Lion Air crash last October that killed 157 people, informed sources told CNN on Sunday.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has said there were similarities between that crash and the second 737 MAX crash of the Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 on March 10 that killing all 189 people on board. Read more
