According to information provided by Rossiya, a malfunction of the engine control sensor was detected in this plane which was connecting Hong Kong to Madrid. "The landing went normally" at the Moscow airport of Sheremetyevo, said this subsidiary of the Russian state-owned company Aeroflot, before adding that "the plane would resume its flight after noon" .

A black series for Boeing

This episode is not likely to improve the reputation of Boeing. The American aviator has experienced a series of accidents for several years. It started with the 737 Max planes. Two aircraft of this model crashed within months of each other, killing 346 people. These are Lion Air in Indonesia in October 2018 and Ethiopian Airlines in March 2019 in Ethiopia. A flight software problem would have caused the downfall of these two planes. As a result, Boeing has made changes to the flight control software for all 737 Max. This allowed these devices to fly again at the end of January 2021, two years after their forced shutdown.

But less than a month after the return of these planes, 128 Boeing 777s equipped with Pratt and Whitney engines were immobilized on the ground. One of his aircraft had a serious engine problem over Denver, United States, last Saturday. Due to the fire in its right engine, this United Airlines plane dropped more pieces of its fuselage in its wake over the American city. According to the authorities, no injuries were injured either on the ground or when approaching the plane. And the plane managed to turn around and land safely, according to the US airline.

Due to a "possible mechanical problem", the pilots of an American Airlines Boeing 737 MAX decided to shut down one of the aircraft's engines in an emergency during a flight.
