Air Canada Boeing 737-8 MAX suffers engine issue
(Reuters) - An Air Canada Boeing Co 737-8 Max en route between Arizona and Montreal with three crew members on board suffered an engine problem that forced the crew to divert the plane to Tucson, Arizona, the Canadian airline said in an E. -Mail with explanation on Friday.
Shortly after take-off, the pilots received an "engine report" and "decided to shut down an engine," said an Air Canada spokesman.
"The plane was then diverted to Tucson, where it landed and remains normally." The incident occurred on December 22nd.

The crew received a hydraulic low pressure indicator for the left engine and declared a PAN PAN emergency before the flight was diverted. The Belgian aviation news website Aviation24.be https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/air-canada/boeing-737-8- max-suffers-left-engine failure-on-return-to-service-flight reported.
"Modern aircraft are designed to operate with one engine, and our crews train for such operations," the Air Canada statement said.
In response to a Reuters request for comment, a Boeing spokeswoman referred Air Canada for information about the incident and made no additional comment.
Boeing and operators brace themselves for a deeper scrutiny as the MAX returns from a 20 month safety foundation. However, security experts say that such glitches are common and usually go unnoticed.
The 'MAX was grounded after two crashes, partly due to faulty cockpit software. The engines weren't involved.
The United States lifted a 20-month-old flight ban on the 737 MAX last month, with the US Aviation Administration outlining details of the software, systems, and training upgrades Boeing and airlines must make prior to carrying passengers.
