In today’s Big Story podcast, two brand new airplanes crashed. More than 300 people died. And the Boeing 737 Max was grounded indefinitely. At first, the investigation, and the shutdown of one of the world’s most popular new planes, was expected to take a few months. But as details emerged, the holes in the regulation, testing and certification system became evident.
Now, it’s been nearly a year since the second crash, and there’s still no firm date for the planes’ return to the skies. When they do, will anyone trust them? How did the system fail so badly? What’s been changed to prevent it from happening again? And will the families of 18 Canadian victims get what they’ve been asking the government for?
