American Airlines flights will land safely in Newark after the engine shuts down

The crash was averted at Newark Liberty Airport on Friday, when an American Airlines flight landed safely when the engine had to be shut down due to a possible mechanical problem.

According to the airline, Flight 2555 from Miami landed without incident, with 95 passengers and six crew members aboard, the airline said.

Officials said the potential issue of the Boeing 737 MEX was related to engine oil pressure or volume indicator – not with the MCAS system failure that was associated with two fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019 that killed 346 people, officials said.

American was the first domestic airline to resume 737 Max flights after 20 months of grounding.

Boeing Co. said it is aware of the American crisis, and the FAA is investigating.

After the plane was declared safe for re-flight in November, FAA administrator Steve Dixon warned that mechanical problems occurring in flight occur occasionally with all commercial aircraft.

“For this reason, it is inevitable that at some point in the future, the Boeing MA MA7 Max will return or relocate to its destination with a real or suspected flight problem,” Dixon said at the time.

“It is important to distinguish between these routine events that occur with any aircraft and the critical safety issues that lead to MAX’s loss of life and grounding.”

Former President Trump created the model after the 737 MAX crashed after takingoff in Ethiopia in March 2019, killing all 157 people sitting on the board.

The tragedy came months after a Lion Air flight from Indonesia sank after taking off from Indonesia, killing 189 people.
