New Zealand officials successfully retrieved the voice recorder and flight data recorder from the Boeing 787-9 that had a problem during LATAM Airlines Flight 800. This equipment holds important information to understand why the plane suddenly dropped, causing injuries to several passengers.

This incident adds to the challenges Boeing is already facing due to safety issues with its planes. Investigations are ongoing, including one by Jennifer Homendy from the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.

The airplane is still in Auckland and will be checked by investigators from Chile. The union representing the flight crew also plans to conduct its own investigation.

According to LATAM Airlines, around 10 passengers and three crew members were injured. However, emergency services in Auckland reported treating about 50 people, with one in serious condition.

A passenger mentioned that the pilot admitted to temporarily losing control of the plane. The union representing the flight crew is waiting for investigation results to seek necessary improvements from the company.

Boeing is under scrutiny for various incidents, including a door plug blowing off a Boeing 737 Max in January. The National Transportation Safety Board mentioned Boeing’s lack of documentation hindering investigations.

Boeing’s troubles worsened with two fatal crashes of its 737 Max jet and safety issues flagged by the Federal Aviation Administration for its 737 Max and 787 Dreamliner planes. The FAA has given Boeing until late May to address these concerns.
