Boeing 737's automation means the 737 Max has gone from best seller to safety concern

Two of Boeing's new 737 Max jets have crashed in the last six months with over 300 people losing their lives. Early investigations into the first of the crashes - the Lion Air plane that crashed off the coast of Indonesia - have drawn attention to a new anti-stall system on the planes.

It suggests that the anti-stall system, which helps the plane right itself, took over from the pilots and forced the plane downwards in response to incorrect flight data. The suggestion is that it was a battle between man and machine.

As Boeing pulls its entire fleet of 737 Max planes, all eyes will be on the automation feature as a key safety concern.

Watch the video to see how the new anti-stall system could have been responsible for the crashes.
