WASHINGTON/SEATTLE (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has identified a new risk that Boeing Co must address on its 737 MAX before the grounded jet can return to service, the agency said on Wednesday.
The risk was discovered during a simulator test last week and it is not yet clear if the issue can be addressed with a software upgrade or will require a more complex hardware fix, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

The FAA did not elaborate on the latest setback for Boeing, which has been working to get its best-selling airplane back in the air following a worldwide grounding in March in the wake of two deadly crashes within five months.
A new flaw has been discovered in the computer system for the Boeing 737 Max that could push the plane downward, two sources say. It's an issue that is expected to further delay the aircraft's return to service, they added https://t.co/mj1crVM1j5

Boeing just put out an 8K SEC filing (a material event) stating that the MCAS software needs to be altered to address a "specific condition of flight, which the planned software changes do not presently address.” Looks likely to add a fresh delay to the 737 Max's return. pic.twitter.com/59nVwKU9nT
