    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.

    As a airline mechanic I need to point out that this would not have happened with a USA based carrier. The hours of flight time for both crews that crashed where way lower than US pilots. I agree that there was a flaw in how the planes system reacted. But there are 2 factors in place that would have prevented this by US carriers. A. US pilots can not be on auto pilot at that altitude. B. US pilot training and time in the cockpit would allowed the pilot to know enough to switch off the auto and know how to adjust. remember Sully . 90+ of the time an air accident occurs it is pilot error (reaction) that is the week link. look at the majority of accidents - foreign countries , minimal pilot training and ongoing maintenance issues. I would fly today any of these planes if they where US Based, with US Pilots and US mechanics.

    they should have lifted the new plane then, bigger landing gears etc
    And training too

    As you said..... U.S. pilots 'this airplane keeps nosing down', but no crashes. Yes there is a problem with the plane and with Boeing, but the FATAL problem was inexperienced pilots flying planes they had no business to be in. The pilots in Ethiopia drove it into the ground at maximum thrust. They never clicked off the auto throttles and the FO with only a few months of basic flight experience was completely overwhelmed. He started to do the right thing by cranking the manual trim wheel, but because they were at max thrust and speed increasing he didn't crank it fast enough.

    How about instead of making MCAS less aggressive, don't have it interfer at all. Train the pilots to manually give inputs so ultimately they have control, not the aircraft. Granted, the system should not have been designed with such aggressive computer input. I bet that test model doing the near vertical climb out didn't have MCAS.

You are probably if you are an attorney-at-law and that demo film that you show me as evidence is evidence of that actuall flight that I flew and as pic. Let’s stick to the issue the MCAS the problem and the MCAS must be removed.....Your side is like killing a complete race of people over a hangnail. Me....✈️🚀🛸👨‍✈️👨‍🚀👨‍🔧🤪

    Well this is not exactly Boeing's fault, it's McDonald Douglas because when they merged McDonald Douglas executives wanted re engined rather than new, safer technology.

    I still love Boeing but this incident is like a titanic two in the way that it shows the worst of humanity’s greed and arrogance. What sickens me is how the safety measures were rushed in the 737 max and they didn’t tell the pilots about MCAS
    That’s just like titanic not supplying enough lifeboats and saying this ship can’t sink

    Wroooooooong! The films you see of the 737 max on T.O. In aerial view at Vertical climb immediately after takeoff was me at the controls in 1995. The plane at approximately 80 percent power climbed for ten seconds at a steep angle....a normal aircraft would have reached a critical angle of attack with the stall horn screaming and shaking at an iminant stall....The 737 didn’t. I rolled it into a very smooth Chandelle which reversed direction, I could not get the aircraft to stall in that maneuver....and Yes. The 737 does have a different “feel” at approach to stall .....very smooth...very controlable..just the way I like it.
