The Federal Aviation Administration reported that a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 Max jet was forced to make an emergency landing today, Tuesday, March 26, 2018, in Orlando, Florida, after experiencing an engine problem.

The 737 Max was grounded on March 13 in the US after 2 catastrophic fatal crashes. The FAA is investigating but stated that it appears the emergency was not related to anti-stall software suspected in the two previous crashes.

There were no passengers on board as the aircraft was being ferried to Victorville, California, where Southwest stores airplanes.

The crew took off from Orlando International Airport and then declared an emergency, landing the plane safely.
