Engine problems appeared on December 22, shortly after takeoff. According to the company, the pilots later decided to shut down one of the engines. “The aircraft was diverted towards Tuscan, where it landed normally and where it lives,” An Air Canada spokesman said. The bus did not have three crew members. Boeing has not yet responded to a request for a comment, Reuters reported.
The Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed into the sea off the coast of Indonesia in October 2018 due to on-board software problems. Five months later, another aircraft of the same type had the same reason near the Ethiopian metropolis of Addis Abba. Disasters resulted in a worldwide shutdown of the 737 MAX model, a corporate crisis with hundreds of court complaints and an investigation by US authorities.
20 months after the ban, the United States allowed the Boeing 737 Max to be reopened in November. However, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a series of requirements that Boeing had to meet in software upgrades or training before the aircraft could return to commercial operation. It has already happened in some countries, and is expected to be in the European Union early next year.
