Boeing is in trouble again: the freighter made an emergency landing off the coast of Honolulu

According to CNBC, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that a Boeing 737 cargo plane made a forced landing near the coast of Honolulu on Friday local time when the pilot reported engine problems and all crew members were finally rescued. It should be noted that the freighter does not belong to the 737 max series which was grounded before.
FAA said in a statement after the incident:
The pilot reported an engine failure and was forced to make a forced landing in the water as they tried to return to Honolulu. According to preliminary information, the US Coast Guard has rescued the crew members. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Commission will investigate the incident.

Reuters said in a subsequent report that the Boeing freighter belongs to the US Rhoades aviation company. However, Boeing and Rhoades aviation have yet to respond to the incident.
Previously, Boeing’s 737 Max had two air crashes in five months. The first one occurred in October 2018, when 189 people were killed on the flight of Indonesia lion airlines, and the second one occurred on March 10, 2019, when all 157 people were killed on the flight of Ethiopia airlines. After the two air disasters, countries around the world, including the United States, have grounded 737 max, stopped local airlines from taking over the aircraft, and banned the aircraft from flying over their airspace.
It was not until November 18 last year, nearly 20 months after 737 Max was banned from flying around the world, that FAA lifted its directive to stop the commercial operation of the aircraft. American Airlines first resumed the commercial operation of the aircraft on December 29 last year.
Boeing’s U.S. stock market opened slightly lower on Friday, then dived rapidly in the next 15 minutes, falling more than 2.5% for a time, but then rebounded and recovered most of the decline.
