Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

For all the years I flew Boeing airplanes (although not the 737), I have never been made to understand a stab runaway event as anything other than exactly that: a stab running away. Not to mention that in the models I did fly, a runaway event would be signaled by an EICAS warning, prompting the mem...

Says who? If that was the case, why is using it near the beginning of the NNC? The manual electric trim has priority over all other electric trim commands.
