Where do people come up with this crap?
By your logic, the former head of the NTSB, a former USAF Accident Investigator and fighter pilot, and former FAA safety inspector all want to hurt Boeing:
What is it that head to folks like you getting so emotional over an airplane model that all consideration of public safety goes out the video and everything becomes tribal scoring? And you actually professionals think like this daily?
You still haven't told me why Boeing is at fault. What did Boeing do to cause these two crashes?
People keep saying they are grounded out of an abundance of caution. Well then shouldn't Lion Air be grounded out of an abundance of caution until their maintenance and training practices are reviewed? Good grief look at how many planes they have crashed. Why should they get to keep flying but not Max? Why don't these experts weigh in on Lion Air?
Nobody is saying Boeing is at fault. What has been explained to you by multiple people here is that 2 aircraft of the same type have crashed in a short period of time with very similar preliminary issues, without a large history of flying for that variant to assuage concerns. The odds of this happening outside of a design flaw are rather small. To put it in perspective, if all commercial airplanes crashed at the same flights per crash rate of the MAX 8, there would be a commercial accident every week in the United States alone.
Grounding the planes to ensure it is not a design flaw is prudent.
