Jakarta, Indonesia’s national airline Garuda is moving to cancel 49 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets following the deadly crashes involving two of the aircraft in Ethiopia and Indonesia.
Is the Boeing 737 Max 8 the problem? well, I have done my small investigation.
The Boing 737 Max 8
The Boeing 737 MAX is a new family of Boeing 737. It is made by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. These Airplanes replace the Boeing 737, next-generation family. It is the fourth family of 737. The biggest change is the engines. The 737 MAX has new, better CFM International LEAP-1B engines. The outside of the plane also got changes. The very first 737 MAX was delivered in 2017, 50 years after the first Boeing 737 took off. Boeing had 1285 orders for the 737 MAX as of May 14, 2013.
After two fatal crashes of MAX 8 aircraft in October 2018 and March 2019, regulatory authorities around the world ordered airlines to stop using this kind of Airplane until the reason for the crashes is found.
More of the Airplanes of Norwegian Airline is the Boeing 737 Max 8. Don’t worry grounded all of them, they are not flying anymore. after the crash of Ethiopian, Norwegian decided grounded all the Boeing 737, Max, that they have until the crashes investigators find the problem and the causes of these two fatal crashes.
Boeing top selling Airplane has been Grounded worldwide
No concluded investigation about the two crashes yet! Indonesia to send investigators to Ethiopia to aid crash inquest. A preliminary report into the crashes suggests that the pilots lost control after grappling with the MCAS software. it seems like it is involving data and software problem. but Irepeat, there is not a conclusion yet.
