Boeing accused of putting profit before safety by Senators


US lawmakers have accused Boeing of engaging in a "pattern of deliberate concealment" as it sought approval for its 737 Max 8 plane to fly.
The accusation came as Boeing chief executive Dennis Muilenburg was quizzed by the Senate Commerce Committee.
Senators said they had serious concerns that Boeing put profits over safety as it rushed to get clearance.
Two deadly 737 Max 8 crashes killed a total of 346 people. Mr Muilenburg admitted the firm had made "mistakes".
"We have learned from both accidents and identified changes that need to be made," he said.
In October last year, a Boeing 737 Max operated by Lion Air crashed, killing all 189 people on board.
