Please then, without bias, do provide any available evidence of the misinformation you have several times now alleged takes place in the video. it is a typical requirement of the forum at this point in either advancing ones argument or else retracting it.
Mods, please do not delete this post, it is compliant with all forum rules.
Not to pick on you, but I always find it amusing that a person can post a video, and automatically it is credible - the audience has to refute it. And not only that, but the audience has an "agenda", and not the video itself. But I digress.
Since you asked, here's the claims starting at the 3 minute mark that immediately told me it was not a video to watch:
1) When the Max is at full thrust, like at takeoff, the nose tends to pitch too far upward --- this is highly misleading at best, a lie at worst. It's a wild statement that is not corroborated any source. In fact, if it is true, it implies the MAX is an airplane that is not controlled by the control surfaces but by the engines, as it pitches up on its own under high power. So we know this is a wrong statement. The known issue (larger nacelles forward of CoG) isn't dependent on engine thrust either. The angle of attack is the key factor.
2) The planes are supposed to fly exactly like the NG --- again highly misleading at best. The MCAS requirement is best explained by the source of it - it is to comply with the requirement that the stick forces are linear (no "lightening" at high AOA). Common type ratings - which is probably the "problem" the video is trying to get at - don't require they fly "exactly the same".
3) Boeing created a "workaround" instead re-engineering the plane --- sensationalist language that isn't the cause of a poor MCAS design and implementation. Boeing didn't need to re-engineer the airplane to do this right.
4) The video states that several pilots said their Max nosed down suddenly --- they've been talked before in these threads. They're undocumented, anonymous reports stated as factual, documented events. This is not mentioned and will easily mislead viewers.
There's more I could pick it, but in just one minute I've been fed a host of misleading or inaccurate information. You bet there's an agenda out there.
