DOJ meets with 737 Max crash victim families

Family members of the victims of two deadly Boeing 737 Max crashes in 2018 and 2019 are meeting with the Justice Department Wednesday as officials continue their investigation into the Alaska Airlines mid-air door blowout that occurred earlier this year. Investigators are looking into whether Boeing went against the terms of an agreement that was reached after those crashes. CBS News Homeland Security and Justice reporter Nicole Sganga has more.


Family of Boeing whistleblower speaks out

In a CBS News exclusive interview, the family of a Boeing whistleblower who was found dead earlier this month is speaking out. John Barnett, a former Boeing employee, had been giving evidence in a whistleblower lawsuit against the company. A coroner says he died from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It comes as Boeing's safety practices have come under new scrutiny due to a series of recent midair incidents. Mark Strassmann spoke with Barnett's mother and brother.


Boeing faces new investigation

The Department of Justice is investigating Boeing for potentially violating the terms of a 2021 settlement agreement. The investigation comes after a door plug blew out on one of its 737 Max planes last month. The $2.5 billion settlement stemmed from allegations that Boeing misrepresented the readiness of its 737 Max jets to the FAA, ultimately leading to two deadly crashes in 2018 and 2019. Ed Pierson, a former Boeing 737 program senior manager, joins CBS News to discuss.
