Several bolts supposed to hold the door of the Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 9 that separated mid-flight were missing, according to a preliminary report from the Transportation Safety Agency (NTSB) released Tuesday.

Earlier Tuesday, the new head of the American Civil Aviation Regulatory Agency (FAA), Mike Whitaker, considered it necessary to strengthen supervision of Boeing after the January 5 incident.< /p>

There have been problems [with Boeing] in the past and it appears they have not been resolved, said Mike Whitaker during a hearing before the House Subcommittee on Aviation.

“We feel like we need to raise the level of oversight to deal with this,” he continued before the NTSB released its report.

On Monday, Boeing reported another problem in the fuselages of its 737 planes, which could delay deliveries of around 50 planes.
