The House committee investigating the Boeing 737 Max blasted U.S. regulators and the Boeing Co. for a series of design and safety blunders involving the jet that’s been grounded for almost a year after two fatal crashes.

The 737 Max’s design and development “was marred by technical design failures, lack of transparency with both regulators and customers, and efforts to obfuscate information about the operation of the aircraft,” the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee said Friday in a summary of preliminary findings from its nearly yearlong probe of the aircraft.
