Boeing shares slipped Friday after a Reuters report said instant messages from 2016 suggest that employees misled the FAA about a key safety system on the 737 Max, the plane that has been grounded since mid-March after two fatal crashes.
The FAA turned over the instant messages to U.S. lawmakers and the Department of Transportation Inspector General, the FAA said in a statement. The FAA says Boeing discovered the messages "some months ago" and the flight regulatory agency finds the document "concerning."

Yikes. Some potentially really bad news for Boeing. Certainly, the market is afraid.
Here’s the Reuter’s report mentioned in the article: https://www.reuters.com/article/ethiopi ... SL2N27310USources told Reuters the Boeing internal messages raised questions about the performance of the so-called MCAS anti-stall system that has been tied to the two fatal crashes in five months. Boeing declined to immediately comment.
The messages are between the MAX’s then-chief technical pilot and another Boeing pilot, the sources said, and raised questions about the MCAS’s performance in the simulator.
Now we know why Forkner was issued with a subpoena and pleaded the fifth.
This is the second report today that has reference to Boeing still failing to co-operate whole heartedly. The first was in relation to congress.
'Unintentionally lied' is a new one for me. Makes a change from 'miss-spoke' or 'economical with the truth'.
