Boeing stocks take off as the 737 MAX returns


On 29 October 2018 an aircraft flying for Indonesian carrier Lion Air, crashed into the Java sea only thirteen minutes after taking off from the Jakarta International Airport, killing all 189 passengers and crew members on board. Less than five months later, on 10 March 2019, Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 took off from Addis Ababa International with 157 people aboard. Six minutes later the plane crashed. There were no survivors. Both crashes involved brand new airplanes and happened within minutes of taking off. Also, the same aircraft model was involved: Boeing’s recently launched 737 MAX.
