Boeing submitted proposal to FAA for wiring fix

The Boeing Co. submitted an initial proposal to the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), concerning a possible solution for wire bundles in its 737 Max aircraft, which are said to pose a risk of short-circuiting.

In its statement, the FAA promised to "rigorously" evaluate the company's recommendation, underscoring the necessity for Boeing to "demonstrate compliance with all certification standards." The administration noted its priority is fixing all safety-related issues before the airplanes in question can return to service. Meanwhile, CNBC reported, citing sources, that the aerospace company does not think the wiring needs to be modified or relocated.

Back in January, 737 Max production was shut-down, after the plane model carrying 157 persons, crashed on its way from Ethiopia to Kenya last year.
