What you need to know:

  • An 18-month investigation into the 737 Max by a US House Committee reveals several disturbing facts.
  • The report says the Max crashes were not the result of a singular failure, technical mistake, or mismanaged event.
  • This now lifts the burden from Ethiopian Airlines, whose pilots had been accused of causing the crash.

The legal action against Boeing over two deadly crashes of its best-selling aircraft has received a major boost after the manufacturer was found liable.
