Pressure mounts on US FAA to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8


US Senators Mitt Romney and Richard Blumenthal on Tuesday called on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to follow several other countries and temporarily ground Boeing Co’s 737 MAX 8 aircraft. This comes days after an Ethiopian Airlines crash killed everyone on board one of the planes, the second major accident involving the aircraft in five months. But the US aviation regulator insists the model is safe and sees no reason to ground the planes.
