WASHINGTON — One month after a door blew out of a Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft the Federal Aviation Administrator Michael Whitaker told members of Congress the agency remains unwavering in its commitment to safety.
“One, what’s wrong with this airplane?” he said. “But two, what’s going on with the production at Boeing? And there have been issues in the past, and they don’t seem to be getting resolved, so we feel like we need to have a heightened level of oversight to really get after that.”
His comments came during a House Subcommittee on Aviation hearing on Tuesday. Soon after, the National Transportation Safety Board found that four bolts securing the door were missing, promoting questions about protocol adjustments.
As investigations continue and oversight measures are implemented, the FAA remains steadfast in implementing oversight.
