EQUITIES: Per RTRS: "Boeing Co failed to submit certification documents to the
U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) detailing changes to a key flight
control system faulted in two fatal crashes, a long-awaited government report
seen by Reuters has found. The flight control system, known as MCAS, was "not an
area of emphasis" because Boeing presented it to the FAA as a modification of
the jet's existing speed trim system, with limited range and use, according to
the report. The 52-page report by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Office
of Inspector General, dated June 29 and set to be made public Wednesday, laid
bare mistakes made by both the planemaker and FAA in the development and
certification of Boeing's top-selling aircraft."
