CHCIAGO (CBS)– Chicago-based Boeing will pay a $17 million fine and the plane-maker is promising to take steps to fix production problems with its 737 jets.

The FAA says the settlement covers the installation of unapproved sensors and other parts on some of Boeing’s 737 models.

The company could pay up to $10 million more if it does not fix quality-control issues. Boeing is still struggling to recover from two deadly crashes that led to a grounding of Max jets worldwide.
