    Two Boeing airplanes have fallen out of the air and crashed in the past six months. On the surface, this is a technical failure. But the real story is about a company's desire to beat their rival.

    Typical American junk product... US is not capable of building a decent car, how on earth they thought they can build a decent Airplane??? Just check out all the passenger plane crashes and you will see 90% of them was made in usa planes... that's why everytime i'm flying I ask and make sure it's not an American plane...only Airbus is safe enough to fly with...

    Boeing will declare bankruptcy. The cost of legal battles, payouts to families for wrongful death and loss of revenue due to no company buying a Boeing product ever again will force the company to declare bankruptcy. Unfortunately, this will not help heal the wounds and loss of trust....

      Boeing is silent....for PR reasons, and justly, in morning.
      However, if sued the fact of poor pilot training will be addressed.
      This will settle prior to hitting a courtroom.

    Tragically, this was the inevitable result of years of arrogance and hubris from both the FAA and Boeing. They have been lovers for far too long now for it to be healthy for flight safety. At last, they have been found out, and it took way too many deaths to do so.

    Surely enough, Boeing have serious avionics engineers in their ranks.
    And surely enough, these engineers must have advised those above that there was this risk that should be taken into account.
    Boeing decided to go ahead, KNOWING they were risking lives.
    If that is not criminal, I don't know what is. We're not talking about manslaughter here.

  • Constandinos Pappas

    Since Boeing says it only needs some "software upgrade to fix the problem" (yeah, right), it sounds as if we're talking about a small technical problem.
    Loss of life? Who cares, we're insured, aren't we...? We'll fix this minor problem and everyone will be happy!
    I would like to see the CEO and all the chain of decision makers of theirs, to be aboard the first "fixed" 737 MAX, up in the air.
    Will they do it??? Of course not. If the matter was not so tragic, I would be LMAO!

    After everything about the 737 MAX has been said so far, what stays in people's minds is not about this plane alone; people will wonder which else of their planes can be trusted now.
    Bottom line: Boeing has managed to irreparably damage its name.
    For a few bucks...

    i hope the plane after the Boeing nma/797 will be a proper successor to the Boeing 737
    it should have a modernized version of the 737 cockpit
    it should be as high of the ground as the a320 or 757
    composite construction should be used
    engines should be the cmf leap 1b or similar engine
    enough range to go from the west coast of Europe to the west coast of america
    there should be 5 models
    7107-6, 7107-7, 7107-8, 7107-9 and 7107-10
    -6 would replace the 737-700
    -7 would replace the max 7
    -8 would replace the max 8, -800 and -900
    -9 would replace the max 9 and -900 er
    -10 would replace the max 10

    To be clear Airbus also has every automatation you can possible Imagen. But as far i know it will always tell the pilots exactly what it does (and why) and secondly with few buttons you can turn off all automatation. (regardless to say that the plane is then much more difficult to fly)

    OK, so the Boeing 737 Max has the same type rating as other Boeing 737s. The pilots fly it just like any other 737. That's problem number ONE.
    NOW the poor pilots are in the Boeing 737 Max when MCAS takes control. Here is where poor design comes in: pilots not informed; no reliance on multiple sensor input; & Boeing know about this problem about a year before the Ethiopian crash. WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG TO CERTIFY A FIT ???

    FAA's certification of this 737 max 8 planes, proves that their relationship with BOEING is not sufficiently strict. Pilots were unaware of this manuevering characteristic augmentation system. Its not even mentioned on their checklist since the checklist is the same as the old 737.

Airbus building the A321 but retains the old proven A320 design with minor upgrade but not on its flught computers.

    • Jamenator1
      Jamenator1 4 ngày trước

      Actually airbus does upgrade the flight control software, some of them are fairly substantial changes. Airbus designed the FBW to make the handling of all their FBW aircraft, from the A318 to the A380, as close to each other as possible as this reduces training costs due to the aircraft behaving similarly to each other. Its a good bet that airbus would have also tweaked the FBW on the A320NEO to accommodate for the much larger engines. Even aircraft already in service can receive upgrades to the FBW

    Sir, hats off to you. For bringing out a best and investigative video on Max Boeing. It was really a careless and casual attitude, which took the lives of more than 400 passengers. Boeing should take passengers safety as top priority absolutely and shouldn't care about fuel consumption, competitor activities, and cost savings.

    The 737 Max crashed *twice* because Boing executives tried to cover up their slapdash design and manufacturing processes after the first crash.
    It crashed the first time because the FAA decided to give Boing a free pass so that a European company did not gain a commercial advantage over an American company, sacrificing their reputation as a competent air safety body on the altar of "American exceptionalism"
    All the phrase "American exceptionalism" means now is "Buy anything *except American"* whenever possible.

    ex BOEING:
    BOEING needs to come clean. By placing the engine higher causes the air dynamics around the fuselage to behave differently than before, it creates turbulence immediate to the sensors causing the hardware to misinterpret input. So hardware is not malfunctioning but characteristics of the design change is causing the catastrophic failure. It is more severe than what they are claiming in the media. A pilot when working at night (instrument flying) will need to be more cautious and better trained then today to fly safely. Inevitably no matter what BOEING states this aircraft will have more problems then prior models.
    Boeing is gambling with people's lives to fatten its pocket. BOEING thinks it can wash its hand from every incident in future by claiming that it was pilots error and therefore no blame can be attributed to the company ... as they did soon after the two crashes.

    Wouldn't it have been easier to simply raise the height of the aircraft by installing taller landing gear? The engines could then have been accommodated under the wing I suppose.

      It comes back to the fact that this aircraft fuselage is the same as the original 100 series, if they had extended the length of the main landing gear it would not be able to fit into the existing fuselage undercarriage bay so retraction would be impossible, hence the bodied up job of moving the engine forward and up

  • Gary Looper
    Gary Looper 5 ngày trước

    Simple fact is that as "Flawed" as the Max may or may not be, BOTH CRASHES WERE PILOT ERROR! The first because the exact plane that crashed had the error the previous day and the crew solved the problem by turning off the malfunctioning equipment, Therefore the crew knew how to handle the error. The second because the crew fixed the problem in the air by turning off the malfunctioning equipment and then turned the malfunctioning equipment back on!

    As much as people say competition is an inevitable good that comes out of capitalism, the free market naturally moves towards monopolies or singular entities with large marketshare because generally it costs way less for the companies and consumers.
    Having to only train one pilot to fly two different planes is easier than learning 8. And it costs less for the airline

The worst part about it is that what ever they decide to do, we don't actually know what kind of planes we're risking our lives getting into. It's sad.

    @4:28 "The pilots continued to fight with the MCAS" Continued?? Why? The battle with MCAS never should have happened. FAILURE #1 They diverted their attention away from FLYING THE AIRPLANE. If they had simply turned off electric pitch trim and concentrated on a KNOWN PITCH AND POWER SETTING, the crash would not have happened! NEVER deviate from basic aircraft control. Pitch trim was changing uncommanded. The only way that's possible is with the electric trim system. @23:22, They knew something was wrong with pitch trim, yet they allowed the problem to continue while wasting precious time consulting the manual. Many situations can and do occur that demand a purely instinctive and automatic response. This was one of those situations MCAS did not kill those people...the pilots did!
