- Issue is separate to the anti-stall system implicated in crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia
Boeing said it has found a second software problem with its troubled 737 Max aircraft, separate from the malfunctioning anti-stall system which Ethiopian investigators identified on Thursday as a factor in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet last month.
The emergence of a second software issue explains why Boeing earlier this week decided to delay submitting to the Federal Aviation Administration a planned software fix aimed at solving problems with the anti-stall system, the manoeuvring characteristics augmentation system, or MCAS.
