Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

From what ive read the pilots seems to have done what they could. MCAS was activated and after the 2nd time they cut the switches, which seems quite normal. They correctly identified the issue and used the correct procedure to handle it. But now they where left with a misstrimmed aircraft they coul...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Wait so the pilots didn't follow Boeing's procedure at all? I would say that following Boeing´s procedure killed them. There is a need for a switch automatic trim off. After the action of MCAS you need the electric trim to FAST trim the frame again, but Boeing's procedure compels you to switch elec...
