Boeing chief executive office Dennis Muilenburg has apologized on Thursday for Indonesian and Ethiopian Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane crash.

According to ANI news reports, Boeing issued a letter, the CEO stated: “We at Boeing are sorry for the lives lost in the recent 737 MAX accidents. These tragedies continue to weigh heavily on our hearts and minds, and we extend our sympathies to the loved ones of the passengers and crew on board Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.”

He added, “All of us feel the immense gravity of these events across our company and recognise the devastation of the families and friends of the loved ones who perished.”

Boeing CEO statement has come after a preliminary report on the March 10 Ethiopian airline crash was released on Thursday which claimed to have lives of 157 people who were on board.

Ethiopian minister Dagmawit Moges has said before Boeing 737 MAX aircraft took off, it was in a good condition. The officials ruled out the speculations regarding the aircraft getting hit with a foreign object.

Moges stated, “The crew performed all the procedures reportedly provided by the manufacturer but was not able to control the aircraft.”

Meanwhile, Muilenburg noted in his statement all information of what has happened in both Indonesian and Ethiopian plane crash will be issued, in the final; reports, by the government authorities.

Preliminary reports, according to the Washington Post, showed the MCAS (manoeuvring characteristics augmentation system) has been activated during the final minutes, in the two flights, when pilots had started struggling to keep the aircraft level downwards.

In his statement, Muilenburg stated: “As pilots have told us, erroneous activation of the MCAS function can add to what is already a high workload environment. It’s our responsibility to eliminate this risk.”

He said that “we’re nearing completion and anticipate its certification and implementation on the 737 MAX fleet worldwide” in the weeks ahead.
