altogether. Now to that report about Boeing revealing new details

about a meeting shortly after the first deadly crash. In

the audio recordings you can hear the pilots pleading with

Boeing to take more action to prevent an accident. Our

senior transportation correspondent David Kerley has the details. This comes

ahead of a house committee hearing on the planes today.

Reporter: Yeah, it's coming up in just a couple of

hours. Members of congress want to know what's going on

with that 737 which is grounded after those two deadly

crashes and how the FAA certified that aircraft. This coming

on this morning after this heated conversation, American airlines pilots

asking months ago to Boeing officials why didn't they know

about this new flight control system. We flat out deserve

to know what's on our airplanes. I don't disagree. Reporter:

The tapes reveal the frustration bordering on anger after this

max crash when the world learned a new system could

nose down the aircraft and may have contributed to the

crash. This is the first time we've heard part of

that heated conversation. We're the last line of defense to

being that smoking hole and we need the knowledge. Reporter:

The tapes shared with media outlets including "The New York

Times" quoting the vice president of Boeing at this November

meeting saying, the worst thing that can ever happen is

a tragedy like this and the even worse thing would

be another one but there was a second crash less

than five months later in Ethiopia. The Boeing engineers trying

to explain back in November why they didn't announce that

new system to pilots. I don't know that understanding this

system would have changed the outcome on this. A million

miles, you're going to be maybe fly this airplane and

maybe once you're going to see this ever so we

try not to overload the crews with information that's unnecessary.

Reporter: At the time Boeing issued a bulletin to airlines

about this new system called mcas. Pilots taped it because

they were concerned about the safety of the 737 max

8 and they didn't feel like Boeing was sufficiently answering

their questions or giving them as much information as they

wanted. Reporter: Boeing told airlines it was working on a

software fix for the system. The American pilots pushing for

Boeing to issue a second bulletin calling for that software

fix but the upgrade was apparently not ready at the

time. We want to make sure we're fixing the right

thing. Yeah, I get that. And we that's the important

thing, to make sure we're fixing the right things, but

we don't want to rush and do a crappy job

fixing the right things and we also don't want to

fix the wrong things. Reporter: Now, Boeing did not comment

on this conversation back in November. Only saying that it

is working with its customers and regulators to get the

737 max back up in the air and, robin, it

is the acting head of the FAA who will be

on capitol hill later this morning. I know but, David,

to hear that audio, all right. Thanks so much.
