A Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft that was being operated by Southwest to California was forced to return to Orlando International Airport and make an emergency landing due to engine failure.

Fox News reports that the FAA released a. statement following the plane’s departure from Florida airport at 2:50 p.m. on Tuesday. Shortly after, the cabin crew was forced to declare an emergency landing due to issues with the engine.

Airport spokeswoman Carolyn Fennell said the plane experienced engine trouble when it took off. Southwest has also said that the Boeing 737 Max 8 will be moved to the airline’s Orlando maintenance facility for inspection and review.

As we reported, Donald Trump and the FAA ordered all Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 aircraft to be grounded in the U.S following the deadly Ethiopian Airlines and Lion air crash that killed hundreds of people.

“The grounding will remain in effect pending further investigation, including examination of information from the aircraft’s flight data recorders and cockpit voice recorders,” the FAA said.
