Re: Boeing 737 Max8 Crashes

But in fact they did not find a suitable scapegoat and they are unlikely to in this investigation. Too many eyes around the world and the FAA is already embarrassed enough . The truth will come out.

Re: Boeing 737 Max8 Crashes

My view is if there is a significant disagreement between the two sensors, this MCAS system should switch off automatically and inform the pilot of this. https://...

Re: Boeing 737 Max8 Crashes

As usual with these type of things , it may take months before we have the definitive answer. Always lots of experts around to feed the news sources but we will just have to wait. I vividly remember when Captain Sully landed his plane in the Hudson River and nobody injured. At the beginning there we...

Re: Boeing 737 Max8 Crashes

Re: Boeing 737 Max8 Crashes

Boeing makes great airplanes. That does not mean that like any company something may only show itself after the product has been in use for some time. The cover up is always worse than the mistake and it appears Boeing is in full cover up mode. And unlike previous problems , the US government is run...

Re: Boeing 737 Max8 Crashes

2 crashes in such a short period and quite a bit of information the same thing happening to other flight crews , hardly makes the plane safe .
