Pilot Boeing 737 MAX turns off engine after failure, aircraft safely landed

A Boeing 737 MAX from American Airlines has landed safely at an airport in New Jersey despite a problem with one of the engines. The pilot had shut down the engine due to a malfunction.

The aircraft was on its way from Miami to Newark with 95 passengers and six crew members when the pilot noticed something was wrong with the engine. According to the first reports, there was something wrong with the oil pressure. Aviation Authority FAA is conducting research.

Thus, the defect had nothing to do with the MCAS operating system that led to two aircraft accidents a few years ago. All Boeings 737 MAX then had to remain grounded for 20 months for research and adjustments.

American Airlines was the first American airline to resume travel with the 737 MAX when it was allowed to do so again.
