Sorry AvE, Sweden never had Harrier's. Some handsome n
blond Swedish dude duped you...
So I was a security guard once at a place where a lot of MIT PhDs worked, doing all kinds of smart stuff for the oil industry... you may actually know the company, I was at the Schlumberger R&D headquarters in Cambridge, MA. Packed with people who are too smart for their own good, diving down rabbit holes of cutting edge technology to do I don't know what with drilling.

Anyway I talked to their expert on fluid dynamics and asked her if the thing about airspeed and pressure differentials creating lift is true. (My suspicion was initially raised by the fact that helicopter blades are symmetrical -- how can a symmetrical airfoil create lift if lift is generated by a difference in airspeed?) She said no, it's not caused by dissymmetry in airspeed, but by... well, I don't know what the other stuff she said was. I didn't understand it since I'm not an MIT guy. She threw the letter Q around a lot but other than that it flew right over my head.

But I did take one important thing away from that conversation: lift generation by an airfoil is not a result of the air moving faster over the top of the airfoil, despite what everyone is taught in school.

Ave, here is an article about the angle of attack sensors you mentioned in this video. Apparently they weren't even installed on either of these planes because they were an optional add-on that the airlines didn't opt for.

Latest news seems to be despite having two Angle of Attack sensors, only one is used for MCAS. The indicator gauges and warning light that say when the two disagree is an optional extra that the airlines didn't pay for. That means one of the sensors is completely rendundant, not in the 'it's there just in case' sense, but in the 'its got no fucking use whatsoever' sense.

this guy pretty much nails it... but your version is more "colorful" which is always appreciated...

Only competition? Don't forget the Russians! They will implement parachutes and vodka to solve possible problems with their planes.
737 Max Problems..Angle of the dangle, heat of the meat, and the mass in the ass.

Is that old Bernoullis law explanation of a wing actually right? Because as far as I can see, the only way a wing can generate lift is by diverting part of the airflow downwards.
AvE was spot on! 3 people in the cockpit made the difference in a previous incident. https://up-tube.com/upvideo/9Gf_NwH89Dx

How are we expected to watch Youtube if the comments on Ave's channel are so interesting we have to read them all?

nailed it
7:35 As a Formula 1 fan, this made me feel warm inside.
I'm sure smarter people than I made this decision for a reason, but I can't imagine why they would allow the MCAS to operate while the pilot is manually flying the plane. It sounds to my only slightly more educated than layman brain like they're designing modern passenger jets like fly-by-wire fighter jets -- unstable without the aid of computer assistance. Seems unnecessary in an effort to save a buck.
goota watch again 3rd time your dead nuts rite about the confuser,faa almost allways takes year no joke fart tubes with wings lol .
more training answer??
bad wave form..

I wonder if the automatic braking systems on modern cars is going to lead us down a similar rabbit hole one day.
Vince Veloce
Your explanation of lift for a plane to fly is not entirely accurate as it doesn't explain how a plane can fly upside down, just a thought.
What if the pilots DID switch MCAS off (basic pilot Runaway Stabilizer training), the whole Christmas tree of lights and alarms go on at that first moment including the stickshaker, but THAT (switching STAB trim switches off) makes the plane instable (to much AT??) in that phase of flight??
My understanding is that the Bernoulli thing isn’t a huge factor in how wings generate lift.

Scamming the Scammers - How to Handle Fake Why are Boeing 737s CRASHING? | In layman's 1 week ago   1:29:12

This video has sparked an article investigation by former Washington Post reporter Brian Krebs:

If the screen is fuzzy, increase the resolution using the little gear located on the right corner of the video frame (minimum 720p to see screen text clearly.) You can also view the video full screen clicking the last square box in the right corner of the video frame. It should be crystal clear audio and video.

In this extremely EPIC video, I get a phone call from a technical support scammer claiming I have viruses on my computer! I knew he was going to call, so I set up a test bench computer and recording devices - and then I let the games begin!

Grab some popcorn and a drink and settle in for one of the funniest and most educational film you'll see this year!

Remember, if ANYONE ever calls you unexpectedly, do NOT give them remote control of your computer! Tell them they should be ashamed of themselves and then hang up the phone - do not wait for them to respond. If they call back, tell them they'll need to call someone dumber than you and, again without waiting for a response, hang up on them.

You can and should report any fake support calls you receive immediately to the FTC. The Federal Trade Commission accepts complaints by phone, 1-877-382-4357, and online:

For more information on this and other scams, read the FTC's consumer guide:
