You put either accident crew in UA232 position, guess what? Everyone is dead. Gone. You put the pilots in JT610 position. Landed. You put the pilots of UA232 in ET302 position, landed. Fact.

Not fact at all. You can assume that, but its something we'll never know.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019

Shares currently falling today, the bad news keeps coming! Will it get to a point whereby the FAA will look to fully recertify the Max and not just the updates? Boeing shares slipped Friday after a Reuters report said instant messages from 2016 suggest that employees misled the FAA about a key safe...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019

A 50+ year old airframe design bodged with new engines, software to 'fix' any handling issues reliant on 1 sensor. Effectively certified by the manufacturer and an under-resourced regulator. What could possibly go wrong. An absolute shambles that 346 innocent people paid the price for. As everyday g...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019

Nice to see someone pointing out the root cause of the crashes - substandard pilots that flew a perfectly fine airplane into the ground because they failed to identify a simple fault and failed to work through a very simple memory item. There are many ways to describe the 737 Max, 'perfectly fine' ...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

Those agencies would be very foolish to withhold certification if Boeing fixes all issues. The FAA could turn around and do the same thing. Maybe the FAA would decide they need to go over the A320neo again since they missed things on the 73M. What you are suggesting is a dangerous game. Those agenc...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

If Boeing is able to satisfy all established FAA requirements then the FAA will have no choice but to put it back on the air. What you or anyone else thinks is immaterial. Hmmm...
