Pilot may have lied about 737maxBoeing Co (BA.N) turned over instant messages from 2016 between two employees that suggest the airplane maker may have misled the Federal Aviation Administration about a key safety system on the grounded 737 MAX, according to documents seen by Reuters.

The messages, first reported by Reuters on Friday, prompted FAA Administrator Steve Dickson to demand an “immediate” explanation from Boeing Chief Executive Dennis Muilenburg for the delay in turning over the documents the company said it had found “some months ago.”

The messages deepened the crisis for the world’s largest airplane maker days before Muilenburg, who last Friday was stripped of his chairman title by the board, is due to testify before the Congress on the development of the 737 MAX.
