The legal action against Boeing over two deadly crashes of its best-selling aircraft has received a major boost after the manufacturer was found liable.
An 18-month investigation into the 737 Max by a US House Committee reveals several disturbing facts.
The report says the Max crashes were not the result of a singular failure, technical mistake, or mismanaged event.
It says the facts laid out document a disturbing pattern of technical miscalculations and troubling management misjudgments made by Boeing. It also illuminates numerous oversight lapses and accountability gaps by the FAA that played a significant role in the 737 Max crashes.
This now lifts the burden from Ethiopian Airlines, whose pilots had been accused of causing the crash.
