Boeing in hot water again for sharing details of plane crash investigation

More news – News 24 hours

Boeing is facing renewed criticism after disclosure of a January crash involving a 737 Max plane. During a factory tour, a Boeing executive revealed details about missing bolts that led to a panel coming off in flight.

This sharing of information angered the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which called it a “blatant violation” of investigative rules. The NTSB is investigating the crash and says Boeing is not permitted to discuss details or speculate on the causes. As punishment, they will limit Boeing’s access to information about the investigation and prevent him from questioning others at an upcoming hearing.

This comes after two fatal Max crashes in 2018 and 2019, which raised concerns about Boeing’s previous assurances of improved safety measures. The January crash and employee reports suggest those changes were not enough.

However, Boeing is making some changes. It requires more rigorous inspections of plane bodies before final assembly and has reduced production due to restrictions imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration. It has also implemented more training for new hires and is streamlining procedures to reduce errors.

Overall, this incident highlights Boeing’s ongoing struggle to regain trust after past safety issues. While they are making changes, the NTSB’s response shows the importance of following investigative protocol.
