Boeing has said it is finalising a software update and pilot training revision related to MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) in 737 Max, following two deadly air crashes in less than five months.
According to a preliminary report on the crash, the pilots first manually corrected an "automatic aircraft nose down" two minutes after takeoff and performed the same procedure again and again before the plane hurtled nose-first into the Java Sea, the report said.
Both the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder were sent to Paris for analysis by the French air accident investigation agency BEA.
But despite the recent sell-off, Boeing was still up 14% this year as the company's fourth-quarter-earnings report highlighted strong fundamentals and positive expectations surrounding the rollout of the 777X, its 747 replacement.

The US Department of Transportation, along with federal prosecutors at the Justice Department, have launched a probe into the development of the Boeing 737 MAX and issued a subpoena on at least one individual involved in the trouble-ridden plane's development, The Wall Street Journalreported.
The FAA has said that the Boeing 737 will not fly until a software update can be tested and installed.
According to engineers who worked on the system, Boeing's own analysis of the safety system had several crucial flaws, including underestimating the power of the system to control the horizontal tail to push the nose down to avert a stall.
