The pilots of the American Airlines Boeing 737 Max decided to make an emergency stop on Friday on a Miami-New York flight due to a “mechanical problem” with one of the device’s engines, before making a safe landing.
Flight 2555 on Boeing’s main plane, which had been grounded for almost two years after two fatal accidents, arrived at Newark Airport “safely and unevenly” and taxis without taxis to the gate. According to the plan, a company spokesman said.
The spokesman said it was a problem with the pressure on the engine oil or the volume indicator.
She assured that the MCAS pilot assistant software involved in the crashes of Lion Air in 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines in 2019 would not be involved.
The plane, coming from Miami, landed “after pilots reported shutting down an engine on the plane,” according to the FAA, the U.S. agency overseeing aviation planning to investigate the incident.
A few weeks after the green light from American authorities, American Airlines became the first company to reinstate the 737 MAX in its flight program in late December 2020.
Many changes in the next flight, especially for MCAS software, as well as new training for pilots.
FAA Director Steve Dixon warned that at some point mechanical problems or suspicious problems would arise and that the 737 MAX would have to return to the airport during its shift. Flight, flight models as usual.
Boeing, which has set up an operation center to monitor a total of 737 Max aircraft in real time, said on Friday it was “aware” of the incident without commenting further.
