And the level of ignorance and speculation displayed by some of the posts on this thread beggars the imagination.
New lows on both counts.
Look into the mirror. There is a problem, but it is a different problem. We have deeply plagued industry which doesn't care about anything that doesn't affect it directly/
Pilots praise pilots for putting passengers and airplane first regardless of people on the ground. Maker of this very plane - Boeing - is being bashed for putting shareholder value over the safety of passengers.
I would see both as parts of exact same trend. Me, me, mine - and rest of the world can go to hell....
The situation was fluid. The pilots made a safety of flight decision. No one was hurt. No metal was bent. And contrary to any hyperbolic comments, no one on the ground was injured in any substantial way. There is nothing here. Zero. No one hid anything, no one was hurt, no one died.
There is absolutely no correlation to the Boeing MAX case. Boeing knowingly put people in danger. And then hid that they knew. Multiple crashes, many deaths, long email trail.
What exactly an I looking in the mirror for?
The pilots PANICED and made a VERY QUESTIONABLE safety of flight decision. We were told many many times that airplanes are designed to fly, and rushed landing is only a good idea when there is a clear and immininent danger. Pilots panicing over what should be routinely trained situation is a scary sight, moreso for ETOPS operation where pilots must be mentally prepared to fly for a few hours on a single engine.
And yes, failure to envision consequencies beyond immediate effect is exactly the same as MCAS situation.
