Federal Aviation Administration acting chief Dan Elwell told lawmakers on Wednesday he expects Boeing Co to submit a software fix for the grounded 737 MAX involved in two fatal crashes for approval soon, and said he was concerned by the planemaker's lengthy delay in disclosing a software anomaly. At a congressional hearing, the chairman of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee told the FAA it must 'get it right' in deciding when to allow the Boeing 737 MAX to fly again. 'The world is watching and the FAA and Boeing must get it right,' Democratic Representative Peter DeFazio said, adding the incidents have raised concerns about how the FAA certifies aircraft.
