Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) head Stephen Dickson boarded a Boeing 737 MAX for an evaluation flight on Wednesday. Dickson, a former member of the US Air Force, is piloting the aircraft himself as a part of the FAA's reapproval process.

The test flight took off from Seattle and will go to Moses Lake and back to the city. It will last for two hours.

Boeing's 737 MAX was grounded globally in March 2019 after two crashes killed 346 people. In August, the FAA issued a proposal for the aircraft's return to service.
