The international call to ground all Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft was justified but that is merely to stop this issue leading to a third tragedy, and the reaction to this second disaster needs to go much further. The next step needs to include not only an investigation into the crash, currently being undertaken by the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority with help from France, but investigations into Boeing and the United States Federal Aviation Administration that have continually claimed the safety of the aircraft need to go ahead also. The preliminary report shows that the crew carried out all of the extra procedures that Boeing stated would stop the Indonesian flight crash scenario repeating itself. However staff failed to regain control of the aircraft. This makes the grounding of all 737 aircraft justified and means that more investigating needs to be carried out following this investigation by Ethiopian civil Aviation Authority.
Problems seem to go further than just 737 aircraft however, follow recent reports of similar problems occurring on test flights of Boeing's new 777X, an aircraft still under development. But following numerous investigations being launched both internationally and within the US government Boeing has maintained that it informed the regulatory body, the FAA, multiple times, as Boeing CEO, Dennis Muilenburg, maintains that wrongdoing is shared by the FAA and the pilots involved in the disaster. However if this is the case there needs to be a number of serious investigations conducted, including an investigation into the lack flight system information that many pilots that were flying the Max 8 raised concern over, an investigation into how the 737 MAX 8 achieved government approval in the first place, and why it has taken two tragic crashes for this to be fully investigated, more needs to be done.
