Recently, Boeing unveiled the new 737 air plane that is currently being used by multiple countries, however, has been grounded because of the recent crash that took place in Ethiopia this last Saturday.

This crash comes six months after a crash that involved the same model in Indonesia where all 189 passengers were killed. The similarity between the crashes is that they both crashed just after takeoff while the pilots were attempting to gain altitude.

So, what does this mean for Boeing and their new 737? The United States, along with the entire EU, has decided not to allow any 737 planes to fly until all proper safety procedures have been taken to make the plane safer to fly. Boeing will be making software and hardware updates in an attempt to make the 737 much more simple to fly. One of the major issues that pilots have with the new Boeing 737 is that it’s too complex. Some reported issues with the plane involve issues with the sensors built into the plane and issues with the automatic safety system taking control when it is not needed.

What does the future have in store for the Boeing 737? Will it ever be recommissioned? Only time can tell.
