Boeing 737 MAX production restarts, but will take time to ramp up

In a brief statement on Wednesday, Boeing said that it has restarted production on its 737 MAX in Washington. This the first time Boeing has worked on producing these jets since it suspended production back in January. The company plans to slowly increase the production of the 737 MAX throughout this year, doing so with an "optimal build environment," Boeing said.

Apple, Qualcomm, Boeing may be put on China’s own entity list

Apple, Qualcomm, Boeing may be put on China’s own entity list

Some, especially governments, live by a "tit for tat" philosophy so it's really no surprise that China wants to hit the US back. The latter has not only extended Huawei's fate as part of the government's entity list, the US Department of Commerce has also made moves to deprive the phone maker of much-needed access to semiconductors for its processors. Since negotiations seem to have broken down, China is now threatening to respond in kind and put US companies on its own upcoming "unreliable entity list".

Boeing Loyal Wingman unmanned aircraft takes shape in Australia

Boeing Loyal Wingman unmanned aircraft takes shape in Australia

Drones may be their commercial term but unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs have always had its roots in the airforce. The latter kind, of course, isn't meant for recreation or even content creation. Take for example the new UAV that a Boeing-led team has just presented in Australia, billed not just as a testament to Boeing's capabilities in aerospace technology but as well as Australia's first "in-house" aircraft in half a century.

Boeing plans second unmanned Starliner test following December glitch

Boeing has made the decision to conduct a second Orbital Test Flight following the troubles it experienced late last year with the initial test. The company announced its decision on Monday, stating that it will conduct a second flight at zero cost to taxpayers, doing so to prove the safety of its system. The second flight will follow its first Orbital Test Flight in December 2019, which experienced a glitch that caused the capsule to enter the wrong orbit.

NASA found critical Boeing Starliner bugs – now it has questions about the crewed capsule

NASA found critical Boeing Starliner bugs – now it has questions about the crewed capsule

In December, Boeing's Starliner capsule experienced an 'anomaly' after separating from the Atlas V rocket that launched it. In early January, NASA confirmed that it would work with Boeing to form an independent team tasked with investigating what, exactly, caused this problem. At the time, it had been revealed that the capsule's internal clock had put the spacecraft into the wrong orbit.

Boeing 777X first flight success puts new plane back on track

Boeing's 777X successfully aced its first test flight over the weekend, later than the jet-maker had hoped for but no less of a milestone for it. Boeing had originally aimed to give the 777X its inaugural flight last week, but poor weather conditions including strong winds forced the plane to stay grounded.

Boeing 737 Max won’t fly again until mid-2020, production halted

It may have been its best-selling model but the 737 Max could now become the plane that destroys Boeing. The plane has been grounded for almost a year now and it seems it will take more than a year before it can spread its wings again. But even if it finally gets the green light, Boeing might have some trouble restarting its pipelines now that it has put the production of the problematic plane on hold.

Boeing finds yet another 737 MAX software issue

Boeing has discovered another software issue with its 737 MAX aircraft that will need to be fixed before the planes can return to the sky. The company confirmed the glitch late last week, according to a recent report, which claims that this problem may impact the plane's ability to verify that its systems are ready for flight. Boeing is working with the FAA on getting this fix through the pipeline.

Boeing employees knew about problematic 737 Max before fatal crashes

Boeing is already under a lot of heat for technical problems with its beleaguered 737 Max plane and the last thing it needs is a PR disaster caused by its own ranks. Unfortunately for the company, that is exactly the case thanks to documents coming from Boeing itself as part of its required disclosure about the design and development of the plane. Suffice it to say, some people inside the company knew exactly about the problems that would tragically cost 346 lives later on.
