A new software problem has been found in the Boeing 737 Max jet series, which has been grounded since March after two deadly crashes in less than six months. Boeing announced yesterday that the F.A.A. has identified an additional requirement for software changes, and the company is working to address those changes.
Sources say government test pilots trying out Boeing’s updated Max software in a flight simulator last week found a flaw that could result in the plane’s nose pitching down. The latest setback is likely to delay the plane’s return to service, possibly by as much as three months, although there is no set timeline.
