Boeing holds test flights for 737 MAX fix

Investors should "aggressively buy" Boeing shares as the stock's recent slump already reflects the grounding of the 737 Max jets and a possible reset of 2019 guidance, Robert W. Baird analyst Peter Arment wrote in a note to clients on Tuesday.

They said it appears the emergency was not related to anti-stall software suspected in the two fatal crashes. If the system starts pushing the plane's nose down, pilots can reverse the movement via a switch at their thumb, a typical reaction in that situation. US airlines are allowed to shuttle the planes but can not carry passengers.

A Southwest flight operating a Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane experienced an issue shortly after taking off from Orlando International Airport on Tuesday afternoon and had to return to make an emergency landing, a spokesperson for Southwest confirms to PEOPLE. On March 12, Oman's Public Authority for Civil Aviation made a decision to suspend all Boeing 737 MAX planes operating into and out of the country's airports until further notice. "The aircraft returned and landed safely in Orlando".

During flight simulations recreating the problems with the doomed Lion Air plane, pilots discovered that they had less than 40 seconds to override an automated system on Boeing's new jets and avert disaster. The system kept engaging nonetheless, most likely because of bad readings from a sensor, until the plane crashed into the Java Sea, killing all 189 people on board.

It was the second fatal crash involving the airplane. A Boeing spokesman said it the company was "aware of the incident and supporting our customer".

"I think the fairly obvious conclusion is that a broader explanation of MCAS was included in an earlier edition of the manual, and somewhere along the way it ended up on the cutting room floor", said Judson Rollins, a New Zealand-based aviation consultant, who worked for three airlines and a plane manufacturer.

"The Boeing 737 MAX 8 will be moved to our Orlando maintenance facility for a review", Landson said.

This week Boeing is also briefing airlines on software and training updates for the MAX, with more than 200 global airline pilots, technical experts and regulators due in Renton, Washington, where the plane is built. Boeing will also hold another meeting with pilots and others to discuss the software fix.
