Two Boeing airplanes have fallen out of the air and crashed in the past six months. On the surface, this is a technical failure. But the real story is about a company's desire to beat their rival.

and the corruption continues. They didn't anything to solve the problem. updating the software does not make the plane safe. I will never fly on a boeing 737 .

Isn't it ironic that unbridled free enterprise and competition is touted as the solution to bad design decisions and poor quality products (at least in the U.S.). This is one instance where that is not the case.

As much as people say competition is an inevitable good that comes out of capitalism, the free market naturally moves towards monopolies or singular entities with large marketshare because generally it costs way less for the companies and consumers. Having to only train one pilot to fly two different planes is easier than learning 8. And it costs less for the airline

In my personal opinion which more than likely would never happen is the CEO and everyone else that gave thr ok, should get fired and see criminal charges immediately, the FAA should have an internal investigation for not looking further into it than just taking Boeing's own certifications and again it'll never happen but I would have them scrap all 737 max 8 planes immediately. The worst part about it is that what ever they decide to do, we don't actually know what kind of planes we're risking our lives getting into. It's sad.

@4:28 "The pilots continued to fight with the MCAS" Continued?? Why? The battle with MCAS never should have happened. FAILURE #1 They diverted their attention away from FLYING THE AIRPLANE. If they had simply turned off electric pitch trim and concentrated on a KNOWN PITCH AND POWER SETTING, the crash would not have happened! NEVER deviate from basic aircraft control. Pitch trim was changing uncommanded. The only way that's possible is with the electric trim system. @23:22, They knew something was wrong with pitch trim, yet they allowed the problem to continue while wasting precious time consulting the manual. Many situations can and do occur that demand a purely instinctive and automatic response. This was one of those situations MCAS did not kill those people...the pilots did!

That is sad. Boeing probably didn’t expect this *MCAS* system to fail, and thus it came unexpectedly that the planes were crashing. Disappointed...

How is it a computer 'bug' when it's code that was written for a specific purpose?
Bill Olsen
Bill Olsen Il y a 13 heures
The code was probably ok, it was auto programmed to kick in on the basis of information from only one sensor aboard the aircraft, which is unheard of in this day & age. It should be done on the basis of 2 or 3 different sensors, but that would have delayed introduction of the new airliner. Criminal behavior at Boeing, and how did they ever think they could get by with it? Maybe Boeing is now run by a bunch of slick suits with new MBA's in their pockets instead of aircraft engineers like it was for years.

Everyone points fingers at MCAS. The MCAS did its job. The sensors or lack of sensors did not.
Agus Suryaputra

MCAS just small things,the big thing is fault design of the plane. 737 cant accomodate bigger engine,but boeing force it to put that engine,to save time and money to compete with airbus.

So all Boeing had to do was increase the ground clearance on the 737 to accommodate for the larger engine and the two crashes may not have happened. How can Boeing guarantee the software update will not crash during operation.

ONe thing thing that is left out that US pilots never crashed the 737 max. Is it true they didn't know about the MCAS? Or is it that they were so dependent on the computers they didn't know how to fly the the plane themselves w/o computer intervention. Something to think about and investigate.?
Turb0 Punda
Turb0 Punda Il y a 3 jours
They wouldn't be flying if they couldn't fly it themselves. The autopilot is mostly used while the plane is stable and leveled at its cruising altitude so the pilots can relax a bit. Also you said they "wouldn't know how to fly the aircraft without computer intervention" when computers caused it in the first place.

At 3:52, the training materials don't include the software because pilots are trained to correct a runaway trim condition by selecting the AutoStab cutout and manually trimming the plane, which is how MCAS receives its power.

This is exactly what 8 or 9 of pilots and engine inspectors were at DFW Airport were discussing near the restaurant at the airport that I was over-hearing with my friend Sarah way before any accident. The mechanics would also mention that, during inspection and review of engine servicing, there would always be buckets filled with O-rings, gaskets, lock-nuts and other parts that were new but not installed or used during the engine rebuild servicing at overseas contractor locations. The manuals were in English and many of the contract mechanics did not speak English and certainly did not read English but, in an effort to save money and increase profits for the American Airlines and Southwest Airlines and other airline companies, it was a "no brainer" to offshore the work to contract mechanics as they can be paid pennies on the dollar without any type of healthcare benefits needed. Oh well. When it comes to business decisions to maximise company profits at any price, it is apparent that human lives are taken into account and are irrelevant and inconsequential. All that really matters in or American Darwinian Capitalist Plutocracy is PROFIT above all things. Praise Be to the Free Market Economy.
