can various *governments* of all countries wherever these coffins were supplied not file en-masse lawsuits? or similar to class action suits which they have in Divided States of Murica? the certifying and monitoring bodies, be it FDA or pharma industry bodies, are all sold out, lethargic or corrupt and incompetent. Bringing them to book or making them change their ways is important too.

+Dan WondersFalse. It only only operates at a pre determined AOA. It doesnt change the feel to be like the NG. MCAS is not active during the normal flight envelope. It was only designed to bring the nose down using the horizontal stabilizer during high levels of AOA. Also 737s dont have stick pushers.

Sacrificing engineering standards in order to meet a schedule this is what Boeing has done. Wrongful death lawsuit has already been filed in U.S district courts. Boeing CEO has made omissions in in relation to the MCAS system. Engineering principles and standards must be adhered to any decisions and must not be compromised in anyway. It appears that Boeing is making decisions irrespective of the engineering outcomes. If Boeing continues with dangerous game it will cease to exist.

I spoke to a pilot about what the reason for failure was, and I he told me the same story as this video did.

The cop gave me a ticket for it and I had to go to court and complete a 4 hour drug course and 65 hours of community service. Boeing is responsible for 346 deaths... what’s their punishment?

You are not 100% correct. The biggest problem with the engine mounting placement on the 737 Max is NOT that the engine is mounted higher. But more forward on the wings, thereby coursing a more powerful nose up tendency when applying power.

Why is not the focus on the the failed AoA sensor?, why when there are apparently two on the plane does the software listen to only one? Why are there not the usual 3 sensors to build in redundancy? Any irregular signal is ignored if the other two agree? Dont other critical sensors (pitot tubes, gyros etc) that feed into the autopilot software come in threes for exactly this reason?

While MCAS caused the issues in the Ethiopian crash they got it shut off and almost made it, but for some reason the electric trim was turned back on (most likely because you cant manually trim a 737 at the speed and pressure that was on the stab at that time)and that doomed them.

Excellent Summary my thoughts re 5:18 in your presentation... So Boeing found the Max didn’t handle the same as the 737NG but to avoid costly training pilots (that would have meant less sales and more to Airbus) Boeing introduced MCAS to make the aircraft feel like the old 737NG. It is suggested Boeing will train pilots how to turn off MCAS if required. Ugh? This is Boeing's solution??... to train pilots on how to turn off MCAS!

What? Now the pilot is flying a plane that they were not trained to fly (ie 737MAX without MCAS) the same plane that Boeing have already tested and proven performs so much differently from 737NG (the plane the pilot has been trained to fly) that it needs MCAS in order to perform the same as the 737NG?

Surely the pilot now needs training to handle the plane without MCAS. What happens once MCAS is turned off? How will the plane perform differently when trying to get back on the ground? I would expect as a minimum that every MAX pilot would need to show in a flight simulator that they are able to turn off MCAS and then safely land the plane. This would be the Minimum standard before any pilot can fly this plane.
What happens if they have to Go Around again for some reason? This excessive pitch up will now occur without MCAS to assist??

I am an engineer, i work in IT, but i understand very well what happened with Boeing. There seems to be a universal "trend" by which everyone is rushing to launch a product ahead of their competitors without proper testing, validation and certification period, not to mention when peoples lives are involved. It's all about staying ahead of the competition no matter what, money is all that matters. I am curious to see how they are going to convince people to get on planes driven 100% by software in the future, given the fact that just this MCAS doesn't work safely, imagine an entire plane controlled by software....God help us!
