After being grounded, Boeing has parked their 737 Max planes, literally.
Aerial shots have emerged from the company’s Renton factory in Washington, where a number of blue 737 Max aircraft were seen parked in the employees' parking lot. Visuals show the giant intruding plane towering over the cars taking up 'considerable' portion of the parking space.
An aerial video shows a shot of planes in the runway before zooming into a shot which shows the extra planes being parked in the factory's parking lot as they cannot be delivered to customers over to the global ban imposed on the 737 models.
Here's the video:
Almost 50 airlines from around the world have had to ground the 737 Max planes and around 100 factory-fresh jets can’t be delivered to customers because of the flying ban.
Boing was forced to ground its 737 Max aircraft after sensors in the airplane malfunctioned during a Lion Air flight in Indonesia in October and an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa in March, causing anti-stall software to push the planes' noses down killing 346 people as pilots were unable to regain control in both scenarios. This led to all countries boycott the aircraft and ground all their current Boeing 737 planes.
As recent reports have revealed that Boeing planned to wait three years to fix a non-working safety alert on its 737 Max aircraft and sped up the process only after the first of two deadly crashes occurred, the company's executives have apologized to families of victims of 737 Max crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia to gain back their customers' trust globally.
Netizens have heaved a sigh of relief seeing the 'parked' bird while some lament parking troubles:
