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.

The MD-11 Had two crashes, both of which where on landing and it was due to a new system revision of the older, DC-10. Boeing address and fixed this issue. Why is this different? Because we now have wide use of the internet, and people can scream louder even when they are wrong.

Boeing is a good company but with a company that big and humans lives are at stake you can’t cut any corners.

You can blame tree huggers and the EPA for the lost lives. ........ Since they forced airlines to cut back on emissions, they were forced to cut weight by going to weaker composite engines and thinner oil. ....... The max was all about being GREEN not being SAFE.

Sadly the aviation industry safe as it but not in this case with the 737 max is just the same as is was in the past .Its called TOMBSTONE TECHNOLOGY and the poor souls in both crashes paid the price for it .History always repeats its self .Its just a matter of tick tock

I’m really disappointed in Boeing. History has shown that if profits are placed in front of safety disaster will follow. These lessons were learned decades ago but I think Boeing crossed their fingers with MCAS and hoped everything would be ok. I feel so bad for the victims and their families.

It is a terrible loss of life that you would assume technology should have prevented. I have to say it is also sad to see Boeing get this so wrong become they have given the world some of the greatest and safest planes ever built. Most of us travellers have been on one. It is easy for the armchair experts to criticize but even they must know this was never deliberate.

Never mind. Boeing say they are going to pay 100 million dollars to the families of the victims so that they shut up and Boeing can have their flawed plane back in the air. It won't be a problem for Boeing; after all, 100 million is roughly the list price of just one B737MAX, and they've got a backlog of thousands of those yet to deliver. To Boeing, those lives are just collateral damage in their struggle to keep an outdated 60s aeroplane relevant in the market. That's the sort of reasoning we get from an economic system that prioritises profit over lives.

why don't they just slightly angle those candarded engines down by 0.005% of a degree? That's all I do on my homemade RC planes to make them fly straight when it's COG and TV is off by mistake.

This is so incredibly sad :'( I can't believe what we, as society, have become, risking people's lives for extra cash and some vane rivalry. Look where capitalism is bringing us. I am not stepping on that plane in my life. It has to be reengineered completely to be trusted. Being a software developer myself, I know how unreliable it can be, there is always a chance that it can break or something was not properly tested. You can never rely on it more than on a hardware. And the fact that they used single sensor for it - absolutely crazy! :(

All other Boeing planes are still safe though. Even the other versions of the 737 are safe. The 737 Max is grounded so don’t worry.

Airbus all the way! I don't care about national pride when it comes to my life and the lives of innocent passengers who put trust in the airlines and by extension, the plane manufacturers. Boeing criminally omitted vital information about its planes design and the software necessary to make it's plane flyable. When a passenger plane can't fly without computer software, someone should be jailed because, I mean, what can go wrong with computer software

Also, they stopped putting physical requirements of strength on pilots, so a 90lbs. man or woman wouldnt be able to override it.

Not sure why Boeing would raise the engine. Wouldn’t that move the airflow over the wing and hit the elevator directly?

How come none of them crashed in the US? A friend of mine knows a guy who flies for Southwest, which flies the 737 Max. He said it was a good plane and he never had a problem with it. These third world airlines oftentimes don't have very good training. The crash could have been avoided had the pilots taken the proper steps which they failed to do due to inadequate training. I'm not saying this is true, just a possibility.
LkOutMtnMan Hace 6 días
Let's build an airplane that you have to put undue pressure on the elevator to keep the plane level and wire it to software control that depends upon one sensor! Then have FAA inspectors rubber stamp the design while nobody catches the insanity of this? If they had calculated the correct angle of thrust on the engines they would not have had to use the elevator to such extreme to keep the plane trimmed out. What would it have cost to just do what Airbus did and make the landing gear taller then mount the larger engines.
