The article linked above said the aircraft veered left before crashing. Pretty much all takeoffs from this airport make a very quick turn to the left, so I wonder if the pilot was attempting to do that?Jump to post

Have you ever seen a plane a twin lose an engine on take off? They're uncontrollable, there's no way to try and avoid something. If you had enough control to do that you'd have enough control to clean the plane up and fly away. Having flown King Airs professionally, I assure you they are not “uncon...Jump to post
From what I can tell this King Air was on Planemasters certificate a Part 91/135 a Chicago based management and charter company. The aircraft was taken off Planemasters website this afternoon. Hard to tell if this was a 91 owner flight or a 135 charter flight, who knows who the passengers were? RIP...Jump to post

I live about half a mile away from this airport and have to wonder if the pilot purposefully ditched into the hangar to avoid ground losses. Everything around the airport is residential.
The dictionary definition of assault is not what courts use so it really doesn’t mean much. In most states, assault begins at just the threat of bodily harm, which certainly gunfire would be. Here’s a good legal analysis if you are interested: https://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/what-is-s...Jump to post
Southwest has a lot more room to move things around than American does. The perks of having an all 737 fleet.Jump to post
Sorry if this has already been discussed (hard to keep up!), but it seems like the EA flight had unstable vertical speed (which was shown in the FR24 data, I believe). Are there any theories as to what would cause that with respect to the MAX series planes?Jump to post
Chiming in to say that I used to do Crisis PR for Boeing (at an agency, they were our client) and they were one of the most difficult clients to work with - so many internal edits and approvals that nothing ever went the way we suggested it to.Jump to post
Lion air would crash any aircraft type. True. They fly planes that should be on the ground getting fixed. Some of their pilots land on the water instead of the runway. They must be close to having crashed at least one of every type they have operated. Even if Lion Air would have crashed flight 610 ...Jump to post

Maybe the FAA & Boeing don't understand. Otherwise they wouldn't have put themselves in this corner. Don't understand what? I think it's clear they have put themselves in this corner for several reasons. One, Boeing doesn't want to admit fault here. Two, the American airlines flying MAX series ...Jump to post
Heard a segment on NPR this morning about grounding all MAX planes. They interviewed a bunch of passengers who were saying that Southwest and American needed to ground their planes and had absolutely nobody on the segment to dispel the hysteria. Not a single person saying that the Lion Air plane was...Jump to post
My apologies if this has already been discussed, but are the only SW planes going to Hawaii their MAX planes?Jump to post

The thing about grounding the Max is... then what? The engines are designed the way they are designed and the MCAS compensated for that. They can’t move the engines. So I guess the only solution is developing a better MCAS? (If that is even theprpblem here)Jump to post
Has anyone here flown a MAX and could explain the differences between it and a traditional 737? I sat in between two Southwest pilots on a MAX a few months back and the only thing they mentioned was a longer start up time.Jump to post

Grounding entire fleets are not viable options. There are companies which have an all-737 fleet. Would you shut them down?
New footage of the crash was posted https://youtu.be/-GeQycmuco4 Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk It’s hard to tell definitively, but it looks like the pilot was trying to pull up even seconds before it crashed. The other video looks like a straight dive, and it basically is, but you can see th...Jump to post
Now that many of the cheaper fares are sold out, a flight from Dallas to Maui is running about $800 a person, connecting through Oakland or San Jose. A nonstop flight on American runs about $1000 a person. Not sure this will be much of a savings for people outside of California, unless you have a co...Jump to post
