Pilot Boeing 737 MAX turns engine off after failure, aircraft landed safely

An American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX landed safely at a New Jersey airport despite a problem with one of the engines. The pilot had turned off the engine due to a defect.

The plane was traveling from Miami to Newark with 95 passengers and six crew members when the pilot noticed that something was wrong with the engine. According to the first reports, there was something wrong with the oil pressure. Aviation Authority FAA is investigating.

The defect therefore had nothing to do with the MCAS operating system that led to two plane accidents a few years ago. All Boeing 737 MAXs were then required to remain on the ground for 20 months for examination and adjustments.

American Airlines was the first US airline to resume travel on the 737 MAX when that again was allowed.
