Boeing halts test flight of new plane - BBC News (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39879962)

Boeing has temporarily halted test flights of its new 737 MAX aircraft due to possible issues with the engine.

The stoppage came days before the US planemaker was due to make its first delivery of the aircraft to a customer. But Boeing said it was sticking with plans to begin MAX deliveries this month, adding that production of the jets would continue.

Boeing says it was notified last week of a potential issue involving turbine engine discs manufactured by a supplier to CFM International.
