FAA Wants More Data From Boeing On 737 Max 9

The Federal Aviation Administration stated that it would proceed with caution and deliberation before re-approving the flight of Boeing-made 737 Max 9 aircraft, following an incident in which a side panel detached during flight. 

The government agency now requests additional information from the aircraft manufacturer. 

The FAA stated that it requires information on forty additional aircraft and the plug doors that were allegedly at fault in the January 5 Alaska Airlines crash.

Since the incident, this particular aircraft model, which is predominantly operated by United Airlines and Alaska Airlines, has been suspended. 

Some are relieved to hear this, as there were rumors that the aircraft would return as early as January 13, Saturday. 

Although Boeing has declared its intention to assist in any inquiry, it has refrained from addressing the FAA's most recent request for supplementary information. 

Although no serious injuries were sustained as a result of the incident, it has increased apprehension regarding the airline manufacturing's quality control procedures.

Notwithstanding the complete detachment of a fuselage section from the plain, the pilot executed an emergency landing. 

This will undoubtedly prolong the process of grounding. Both United and Alaska have reported discovering loose fasteners in certain doors during additional inspections of their Max 9 aircraft. 

The FAA will establish and regulate the inspection procedure. National Transportation Safety Board and FAA investigations have been launched into the incident. 

A collaborative effort between Alaska Airlines and United Airlines has resulted in the cancellation of hundreds of Max 9 flights. Additionally, one of Boeing's suppliers is under fire.
