Report: Pilots Made Multiple Complaints to FAA About Boeing 737 Max Planes Before Latest Crash

Pilots reportedly made “at least five complaints” about Boeing 737 Max 8 planes to the FAA before the fatal Ethiopian Airlines Crash, Sunday.

Overall, “at least five complaints” about Boeing 737 Max 8 planes were filed before the crash with the FAA’s incident database, which allows pilots to anonymously report incidents with their airplanes.

On Wednesday, President Trump issued an emergency order to ground Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, following the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday which killed 157 people, with no survivors.

“Canada’s transport minister said the decision was made based on ‘new data’ about the Ethiopian Airlines crash received on Wednesday morning.”

It was reported on Thursday that the FAA confirmed “it will not unground Boeing 737 MAX planes until software upgrade is tested, approved and installed.”
