This isn’t just a computer bug. It’s a scandal.

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.

instead of moving the engines higher, they could have just make the landing gears taller so that plane's ground clearance would be more to fit larger engines. i think that would be more simple, safe and secure solution.. 😐

Just look at the Boeing 787 which had exploding batteries and also the 737 old generation which crashed SO MANY TIMES. Then look at airbus, you will see a stark difference

the other side of this: pilots are supposed to know how to "fly" a plane. and without all the electronics. What sort of arrogance is it if someone jumps into something new without reading the instructions first?

Having flown on one before there ban with Norweigan, I will never like Boeing, Putting Profit before People is a horrendous crime.

They could have just made a bigger suspension and a bigger engine like airbus and none of this would have happened

They expect us to take the risk of becoming a human lawn dart because they did a software update?

Yeah the engines are the wrong size ? oh no problem just do a software fix... shameful shameful, and after the Boeing max disasters the Boeing company would’ve just been more concerned about their stock and shares prices going down then the planes going down..

this is horrible so many familys destroyed and erased... all over nothing, they cannot make up for their mistakes - not in a million years. i hope the familys and loved ones can find peace at some point - and that people learn from it so it will never happen again. r.i.p

Couldn't they just make the landing gear longer to make the plane sit higher from the ground and fit the engines under the wings?

My friend's sister was on board in that Lion Air flight from Jakarta. I was just seeing her 1 month before the accident happened while visiting her home, she was busy packing her luggage. She was schedule to depart to another city, the same destination to when the plane crashed to the ocean. Not knowing that was the last time I would be seeing her. It's even sadder that her family also lost her brother not long ago, from 3 children now left only one.

Airplanes engineering are too complex, MCAS system caused two accidents in 737 MAX, however this same system could save many lives in another accidents. One example is AF447 flight, caused by a stall, if Airbus A330 had the MCAS system, this stall would corrected automatically.

The real reason is that the 737 is built in just a week lol

MAX profit, despite design flaws. So, MAX has heavier Engines that causes center of gravity problems. The cheap solution was a computer to correct flight dynamics "but" the feedback sensors are less than reliable.! We should not be surprised.! Boeing didn't fully develop out the bugs, no manual override & a lack of specific training,, then again ; Boeing flight approved these changes inhouse... so no , we shouldn't be surprised. Normally, changes of this magnitude require extensive development testing, modification & perfecting but this whole project was fast tracked into certifying its air worthiness. Boeing gambled with our lives = criminal negligence.
disco the talking budgie
Tbh they shouldve raised the landing gear

why don't they lift the body far above tire?

Then they would have to redesign the physics of the plane, which would affect payload, space, stability etc.

Boeing created the MSE program to bypass quality for schedule and profit....just wait...this is just the tip of the iceberg.

when the investigation is done they'll determine it was "pilot error" even tho it was clearly a factory malfunction error.

I guess you don't keep up with news. They already determined it was Boeing's fault for not properly documenting MCAS, MCAS not functioning properly, as well as rushing the plane through the certification process.

Just asking, I’m going on an old plane, so is it safer than the newer ones?
Caleb Austin
Caleb Austin 5 days ago
@April Sea It depends on the model, a lot of planes that are old but are still used by airlines were probably pretty successful, but in new models there is more modern tech which is good but most old planes and new planes that are used by airlines are both very safe. They are about the same and if you were on a newer model you shouldn’t worry because the new tech on airplanes are *nearly* flawless. Have a good and safe flight!
