Alaska Airlines to add 737 MAX to 10-year-long purchase plan

Boeing remains found in 70% fuel tanks of 737 Max aircraft inspected US Federal prosecutors probe whether Boeing pilots knowingly lied to FAA

Boeing Co (BA.N) has found debris in the fuel tanks of dozens of undelivered 737 MAX jets amid ongoing inspections as the Chicago-based planemaker struggles to restore the trust of airlines and the wider public in the grounded fleet.

The plane has been grounded by regulators around the world since March of previous year following two crashes that killed 346 people. Meanwhile, a source told Reuters that problems were found in more than half of the planes inspected so far, while Wall Street Journal (WSJ) sources said the inspectors discovered debris in around two thirds of the aircraft checked. They are amid the 400 developed final year that Boeing has not been equipped to produce to airline consumers.

In recent months, prosecutors have questioned several Boeing employees in front of a federal grand jury, with some of their queries focusing in particular on whether Mark Forkner, a top pilot at the company, intentionally lied to the regulator about the nature of new flight control software on the jet, the people said.

The particles was found in the course of upkeep on parked airplanes, and Boeing stated it instantly manufactured corrections to its generation method to keep away from a recurrence. Boeing said that the presence of FOD is "unacceptable and won't be tolerated" on any of the company's aircraft set to be delivered to customers.

The New York Times has cited two unnamed sources as saying that federal prosecutors are investigating whether Boeing deliberately misled the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) when the U.S. aerospace company was seeking approval for its 737 MAX jetliner.

A Boeing spokesman warned against the application of 70% to the 400 jets, saying there is no way to know how many have the same problem until everyone is inspected.

Prosecutors are trying to determine whether Forkner knew about a key change that Boeing had made to MCAS that allowed the software to trigger in nearly all phases of flight and then did not give that information to the FAA.

All 737 MAX planes have been grounded since 13 March 2019, amid the fallout of two 737 MAX crashes which together claimed the lives of 346 people. He pushed the noses of the plane down, causing spirals that the pilots could not stop.
