Reports have emerged over the weekend that the FAA is considering an entirely new angle on its investigation into the 737MAX after a whistleblower called a hotline to report a new issue.  At lease four current or former employees called the FAA hotline to lodge complaints about the 737MAX, one of which discussed foreign object damage to the wiring of the angle of attack sensor.  It has been reported by an FAA source that the agency is considering a new approach to the investigation because of the whistleblower report.

In addition, reports have emerged from the Wall St. Journal, that Boeing did not tell Southwest that the angle of attack alert was turned off, and that Southwest did not know about the change for more than a year after the 737MAX entered service.
