Federal Aviation Administration authorities say they’ve found another flaw in the plane’s updated automated flight control system — one that reportedly appeared to push down the nose of the aircraft during simulations, delaying the recovery time for pilots. The glitch will likely further delay efforts to get the 737 Max back in the air, and to restore the Chicago-based planemaker’s reputation after two deadly crashes since last October.
Will the 737 Max ever fly again? United, American and Southwest Airlines have all grounded the aircraft until at least August.
