Tweede Boeing-model wordt geïnspecteerd na Max 9-incident

January 22, 2024 - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is recommending that airlines inspect Boeing 737-900ER jets, which use the same door plug design as the grounded 737 MAX 9.

The recommendation follows the FAA’s grounding of 171 Boeing 737 MAX 9 planes after the Jan. 5 mid-air cabin blowout of a door plug on an eight-week-old Alaska Airlines MAX 9 jet.

The 737-900ER is not part of the newer MAX fleet but has the same optional door plug design that allows for the addition of an extra emergency exit door when carriers opt to install more seats, Reuters said.
