(Washington, DC) -- The Federal Aviation Administration is ordering Boeing to fix a software glitch that could lead to crashes. At question is the latest version of Boeing's 747-8 plane, which the FAA says contains a computer glitch that could cause the jet to lose thrust. The FAA directive involves at least seven Boeing airplanes operating in the U.S. and more than 60 others across the world. The government is skipping a comment and public hearing period due to the seriousness of the safety issue.
