Enhanced software to be adopted by boeing 737 Max fleet in coming weeks
 
MOSCOW: All Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will adopt new enhanced software in the coming weeks, the aircraft manufacturer said in a press release on Monday in light of the recent deadly crash in Ethiopia involving a jet of the same model. On Sunday, a Nairobi-bound Boeing 737 Max 8, operated by Ethiopian Airlines, crashed minutes after take-off from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

All 157 people who were aboard the aircraft were killed. "Boeing has been working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on development, planning and certification of the software enhancement, and it will be deployed across the 737 MAX fleet in the coming weeks. The update also incorporates feedback received from our customers," the press release said.

The latest catastrophe in Ethiopia is the second fatal incident involving the narrow-body aircraft in less than five months. In late October 2018, another Boeing 737 MAX 8, operated by Indonesia''s Lion Air, plunged into the Java Sea shortly after take-off, claiming the lives of 189 people. According to the preliminary investigation, the plane''s sensors were showing incorrect speed and altitude readings.
