Mother! Its all about money , they did not care how stupid was to move the engine up the wing , they could not accept that airbus was a better plane with a better design. From now on i’ll make sure every time i fly to avoid boeing planes even if the ticket cost more money , my life can’t have a price like boeing stupid planes and greed

There are 2 element / messages in this video that are worth highlighting.

1. "Greed is bad. Greedy people at the top of Boeing forced 'innovation' at an unrealistic time frame and with deadly consequences for the sake of profit. Greed at its worst." This is some thing I can stand behind. yes, this is an obvious case of a bunch of asshats making decisions looking at the stock market with one eye and the succes of it's competitor with the other, their customers being a mare afterthought.

The 2nd element in this video, albeit a subtle one: "competition is bad. competition drove Boeing to do what they did, therefor competition is something to be discouraged. I find this to be troubling messages. It's fantastic that Boeing engineers tried their best to come up with a solutions to a hardware problem. they failed, but it's not the fault of competitiveness. it's the fault of greed. competitiveness is the reason why come that far with Aviation today. Competition is the best thing about capitalism. Look at rocketry before and after SpaceX, the difference is night and day.

Does anyone remember the crash of lauda air? The engine went into reverse thrust? Pilot was blamed coz Boeing didn't want to take any responsibility? Or what about Japan Airlines 747 with a shoddy repair by Boeing that caused the rear bulkhead to explode out killing over 500 people? Or am I missing something

The original 737 was meant for shorter flights when the jumbos were used for long haul flights. Why try to modify a small 737 for longer flights? Come up with a new more efficient model to compete with Airbus.

This report is quite misleading in multiple ways to fit that narrative that boeing is a greedy company which lied purposefully hid data on their plane, way before any investigation concluded thus.
ash0787 - Day ago
because the mandela effect made the engines on all planes move further forward, and the wings became narrower.

Can anyone explain why putting the engine higher pulls the nose up? In my understanding putting the engine up shortens the lever which should result in the opposite behavior. Putting the engine down like airbus did should increase lever and pull the nose up.
Also i don’t understand how the pitch was determined by a single sensor. Every system usually has 2 redundancies in an aircraft. My fu****ng Smartphone has 3 different sensors to measure pitch: acceleration sensor (measures how your phone is tilted, for example flips screen if you turn it around), GPS (gives you speed and direction. From (upward)direction should be easy to get pitch), pressure sensor (it can measure altitude very accurately (+ - 1m), with change of altitude you can calculate pitch (how fast plane is rising).)
How did MCAS only have 1 sensor? That’s what drives me crazy. And it’s nice to reduce the risk of Stall automatically. But how is there no software to detect if the plane is crashing in the ground or not?!?? I mean there are autopilots in planes for decades and they don’t crush planes into the ground. I just don’t understand this.
There is nothing wrong with the basic idea of MCAS but it it feels like an intern designed it.

Why introduce yet another feature suseptable to computer failure? There is too much automation / less pilot control on the new planes. Airbus, in particular, has suffered many crashes because of computer glitches. I.e. does your PC at home ever malfunction? Would you trust you life to your PC. Hell no, but the electronic nerds want to have more computer authority in airplanes. If the nose pitches up on takeoff, why not just train the pilot to anticipate and compensate for that pitch up with elevator trim? It would add slightly to the pilot's workload but at least there wouldn't be another automatic system that obviously can fail.

Okay so I’ve watched a few videos about this and from what I see there are thousands of these planes but only these two crashed? And it wasn’t even the first flight for either of them.... still the fact that they hid mcas from pilots is enough for them to pay.

The FAA admin is filled with former or current Boeing executives. FAA streamlined it because it’s an American company, so they gotta “win” even if that means people’s lives. Look at the 787s, they didn’t fix the lithium battery issue, they just made a better box to prevent explosion. Fast tracked junk

Boeing screws up royally, killing people, so naturally it's time to cue the brain dead Vox viewers to crawl out of the woodwork and pin the blame on "the evils of capitalism."
What you fail to recognize is that it is free-market capitalism which guarantees that Boeing will pay for its negligence THROUGH THE NOSE by losing multi-billions in sales to Aerobus. FOOLS!
But the really-and-truly hilarious thing about you AOC voters is that you think that, if we can just do away with capitalism, THEN PLANES WILL NO LONGER CRASH!

The fundamental problem is that because of the design of the tailplane there is insufficient control authority to push the nose down against the pitch up moment of the more powerful engines. A tailplane redesign would require a full certification of effectively a new type which would have taken much longer and cost more, leaving the market for Airbus to dominate. So a new system, MCAS, is introduced that has more authority than the controls alone. But this system relies on the signal from a single sensor. There are two of these sensors, it would be possible to arrange that both sensors had to show a problem before the MCAS operates. But then it might not operate when it should. A third sensor could solve this, MCAS only operating when at least two show a problem. More complicated, more time needed to develop and certify it.
The bottom line is that Boeing knowingly cut corners in the rush to get to market. They ignored warnings from experienced pilots flying the aircraft. That killed hundreds of people. It is costing airlines that trusted Boeing's promises about the aircraft a fortune.
Boeing's solution? A software fix. That won't fix the tailplane.

I once had a trainee work on a software project with me. The software had to compute a particular percentage number. Obviously, that number could not be more than 100% But he was getting numbers higher than 100%!
So, his fix was :
if (percentage > 100.0) then
percentage = 100.0
Neat! (except that the actual problem was still there, of course).

This video states that mounting the new engines higher on the 737 wing resulted in a greater tendency to pitch nose up, compared to older 737's with low mounted engines. Mounting the engines higher and closer the the center of mass should result in less nose up pitching tendency, unless the new engine is of vastly higher thrust. If it is true that this new 737 model has a higher tendency to pitch up when thrust is increased, there must be other factors in play like different weight and balance, center of lift position, angle of engine mount, etc. Simply mounting the engines higher should reduce (not increase) nose up tendency, all other things being equal.

Boeing released the 737 Max to fly on probability. Did they not learn about the stuck rudder. It would have been common sense to let the pilots to know how to manually trim the stabilizers. But then the question is that does 737 Max require the extensive training to learn to fly it without the MCAS.

In the news ,what is happening throughout the world natural disasters,disastrous war in Syria killing about half a million people since the conflict started the destruction and the terrible suffering of the Syrian children ,srilanka ,conflict with boko haram in Nigeria, disastrous war in Yemen,south Sudan,Afganistan,Pakistan,Libya,Heat wave in india killing thousands,uncommonly people dying throughout the world ,don’t you feel there is something unusual recently ,does that mean anything to you?
In the Bible Jesus said ,when he is about to come, not only such things will happen but the next pulse of such things will be stronger. (matthew 24:6-8)
He also said that finally there will be a crisis through out the world that has never been before and will Not be after(matthew 24:21)
Imagine the evil things that have happened through out the world up to now,world war I & II ,what Hitler did to the Jews people(holocaust),atomic bomb dropped in heroshima and negasaki,famine in different parts of the world ,several natural disasters etc…,but non of these match what is about to come ,according to the bible.
He is coming soon !he is at the door!!are you ready? He loves you and he wants to save you.
The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
If you do not accept him, according to the bible, your destination will be hell, eternal suffering!!
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
If you want to accept Christ as your Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:
"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."
Did you pray this prayer? IF YES please visit
