FAA investigates Boeing midaair incidentBoeing 737 Max 8 jet experienced a rare but potentially serious problem recently known as a Dutch roll before landing safely.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the cause of the incident during a Southwest Airlines flight last month.

Less than an hour after taking off from Phoenix on May 25th, the plane experienced an uncontrolled side-to-side yawing motion known as a Dutch roll while cruising at 32,000 feet. The pilots of Southwest flight 746 were able to regain control and the plane landed safely in Oakland, according to a preliminary report from the FAA.

“A Dutch roll is definitely not something that we like to see,” said Shem Malmquist, a commercial pilot who flies the Boeing 777 and an instructor at Florida Tech.
