Re: Trump Resignation/Impeachment Megathread

IF Trump IS a traitor, would the people who run America let him be put on trial, or would he have a heart attack and either die or retire. Can you afford to have him sent to a Supermax. Are you asking if someone in government (or the Illuminati) would assassinate Trump? We aren't a banana republic ...

Re: Lion Air 737MAX8 Crashed Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang

If the sensors that help detect a stall or impending stall - ie AOA sensors - aren't working, then how can you pay attention to them? If you've got a stall prevention system - ie MCAS - that uses data from those sensors, _and_ it can't - whether a sw bug or a bad design - effectively choose the goo...

is it possible the pilots of JT610 thought their plane was in a stall? They knew they weren't in a stall. They were flying straight and level for 7? minutes and were flying pitch and power with a bit of excessive power; they were at around 300kts if I remember correctly. Also they had asked the tow...
