Earlier this year, the Federal Aviation Administration grounded the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet. That followed two crashes over the previous six months.

Those incidents, and the effects of those planes not being in the air, were some of the biggest stories of the year in aviation; they led Boeing’s CEO to step down last week.
