Reportedly,a Montreal-bound Air Canada Boeing (BA) 737 Max had to be diverted in Arizona earlier this week due to an engine issue. The pilots on Air Canada Flight 2358 received an engine alert shortly after takeoff from Marana, Arizona. The flight had no passengers and three crew members, the plane now remains in Tucson.
737 Max jets were being stored by the carrier at Marana, Arizona after the planes were grounded worldwide in March 2019 after two deadly crashes.
“As part of normal operating procedures in such situations, decided to shut down one engine” and diverted to Tucson, Air Canada stated.
Last month, U.S. authorities lifted the ban on the planes last month after Boeing made changes to software that was reported in both crashes that resulted in the aircraft’s grounding. The aircraft received approval for its design changes from the Canadian officials, this month.
Boeing declined to comment and referred questions to the airline.
