On March 10, a devastating crash of Ethiopian Airlines’ Boeing 737 MAX aircraft killed all 157 passengers and crew aboard the flight. This was the second such crash of a Boeing 737 MAX and it resulted in a worldwide ban on the aircraft. Both airlines and regulators grounded the plane and Boeing cut production significantly. Initial investigations into the crash pointed out a problem with the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System or MCAS, an anti-stalling mechanism that kicks in automatically when a sensor detects that the aircraft is about to stall. You can read more about MCAS and what went wrong with the Boeing 737 MAX here.
