      Boeing’s only good solution is to delete the program and make a completely new plane that would be different enough that existing pilots have to go through a change like an A220 pilot learning to fly a 777-300ER.

        I have to disagree with two main points of your presentation. Lives and reputations are at stake here, so it is very important to be as accurate as possible. First of all, the FAA would not certify the 737MAX under the same type rating as the rest of the 737 family because its STALL CHARACTERISTICS were different, not because of the tendency of the MAX to pitch up on takeoff. This is in fact due to the placement of the new, larger CFM LEAP engines. BTW, the sitting height of the MAX on the ground has also increased, by 9 inches. Additionally, in the Ethiopian crash, the crew made two critical errors. They did not disengage the auto throttles, which remained engaged and it the full thrust takeoff setting. They did in fact correctly disengage the two elevator trim switches, which would by design disable the MCAS system. However, because of the high thrust setting, the air loads on the elevator were so high that the crew had great difficulty manually trimming the elevator, and subsequently, turned the elevator trim switches back on in order to electrically trim the elevator again. Unfortunately, this move proved fatal because it also reengaged the faulty MCAS system, which caused additional nose down trim and eventually led to the crash.

          It is a terrible loss for the families and to those who lost their lives

          Complicit in this is the United States Government as well as Boeing . But ultimately the finamcial.cost of this horriblentragedy will be carried twice by the tax payer . Boeing is heavily subsidized by the US Government and therefore all compensatory damage will be paid once by the tax payer that subsidizes Boeing and then again when the Government is Sued by the families of victims .

          And not a single person will be charged with manslaughter for their negligence in the charge of duty they had to protect the lives of its passengers . But the rich got richer for a time and they will skate on by with no prison term while someone who got caught selling weed 3 times is serving a life sentence.

          These families should take everything from Boeing. This was no accident .

                    My wife and daughter are going to fly Boeing in 2 months, not happy about it and I told them to cancel if it is a 737 MAX even if we have to pay the ticket ourselves.

                                Boeing isn't facing more scrutiny because its a bunch of Asians and Africans that died if this happened in America it would have been a human cry. Boeing would be asked to pay through their noses, company might even get bankrupt!!! But since Asians and Africans Died lets ground aircraft fix the aircrafts and lets all be on our merry way.

                                                There is no plane that doesn’t have quirky handling characteristics under various conditions. All designs have their compromises between aerodynamic efficiency and utility. Planes go through many design changes in their life, too include the placement of the engine on the wing. That’s nothing new. I don’t like Boeing, not because they don’t make great planes because they do. I don’t like them because their planes are overrated and their employees are a bunch of unionized babies. These two incidents have many things in common with accidents in decades past with other planes, but they never mention those because this story is being used politically both domestically and internationally. You all believe what you want, but there are parts of this story that are being exaggerated, and parts that are flat out being left out. All to serve a purpose. I don’t necessarily prefer Boeing to Airbus, but you can all start acting like The Lord of the Flies if you want. Because that’s what self serving animals do, they use opportunities like this to serve their own ambitions for power, money and fame by exploiting the weak minded to do things far worse. As far as Vox and their credibility, it’s not hard to scroll back, even within the last year, and find stuff they mentioned as facts, and were not. Vox is like Wikipedia to me, it’s good only as a starting point, but I wouldn’t rely on it.

                                                  I need a better explanation on why the engine placement increased pitch angle

                                                    Danny - It's the result of the airflow over the LEAP engine nacelle contributing to the lift being generated by the wings. It doesn't increase pitch angle as much as it adds to the torque around the lateral axis of the aircraft around the center of gravity, which can move forward or aft about four feet in flight and still be within the aircraft's safe CG envelope.

                                                        Boeing has some serious internal issues. Disregarding safety, cutting corners, and putting profit above all else isn't the exception at Boeing, it has become the norm. Eye-opening documentary shows the same behavior in the Dreamliner program:

FAA the agency that was supposed to work for the safety of the People did the exact opposite. The Government and its agencies are run by big companies. The President is Friends with CEO of Boeing. Conflict of Interest is written all over this story. It just makes me sad I hope people responsible for those innocent lives are brought to justice.

The UK and French Concorde and the Airbus A380. That showed how to make a plane that was better than the Boeing 737. Then this had to be icing on the cake trying to modify The 737 because the Airbus A320 was yet again the better aircraft. It sounds if someone in the US F A A was getting backhanders for allowing this the licence of airworthiness now at what cost.Shame on the USA.

My thinking is that with the MCAS disabled, they would manually retrim the elevators for a positive feel that would facilitate pulling their yokes back to secure a transition from dive to climb before running out of altitude...or were they already too close to the ground when they successfully disabled the MCAS?"

They had very little time behind the stick of any plane. Pilot 101, if it isn't working and you can fly without it, leave it alone. Boeing definitely needed to disclose this new system, but those airlines come from a "safety 3rd" environment.

The man is right in that the MCAS system needs to removed ENTIRELY and not just have a software update with additional sensor readings. That the 737max aircraft airframe is inherently instable, is unacceptable for a civil aviation aircraft. This necessitates a complete redesign of the 737-max aircraft to be inherently stable.

                                                                                        It is also very dangerous for gliding if the engine fails
