WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on investigation into safety review of the troubled Boeing 737 Max (all times local):
With Congress stepping up its investigation into the troubled Boeing 737 Max airliner and how it passed regulatory safety checks, the head of the Federal Aviation Administration is testified before a House aviation panel Wednesday.
