A Boeing 737 MAX of Brazilian airline Gol lands at Salgado Filho airport in Porto Alegre, Brazil on December 9, 2020. – More than 20 months after it was grounded following two deadly crashes, Boeing’s 737 MAX returned to the skies Wednesday with an incident-free commercial flight in Brazil, said AFP journalists on board. Low-cost airline Gol’s Flight 4104 from Sao Paulo arrived safely in the southern city of Porto Alegre about 70 minutes after take-off using the revamped jet, in a first that Boeing hopes will turn the page on a badly damaging crisis in the wake of the twin crashes.
