For the first time, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg acknowledged a new maneuvering system was responsible for two 737 Max plane crashes.
"We at Boeing are sorry for the lives lost in the recent 737 accidents and are relentlessly focused on safety to ensure tragedies like this never happen again,” he said in a video posted to Twitter.
He said “with the release of the preliminary report of the Ethiopian Flight 302 accident investigation, it is apparent that in both flights, the maneuvering characteristics augmentation system, known as MCAS, activated in response to erroneous angle of attack information. As pilots have told us, erroneous activation of the MCAS function can add to what is already a high workload environment. It's our responsibility to eliminate this risk. We own it, and we know how to do it."
