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.

My wife's bestfriend was on that plane (Lion Air). We don't need new software and training, we need justice.
I wouldn't fly in one of those now. Software update or not. Patches are fine for an iPhone or something non life critical, but for a jet.....
Sooooo..Am I supposed to be worried next time I fly? because the chances of flying with a 737 Max could be likely? or have they all been grounded and I've got nothing to worry about

Never trust money minded company they just play people emotion and their loved one never come back

If only Boeing put people before profits...
Why ground the planes? Just let free market capitalism do its thing so that libertarians can get $25 flights on empty 737 Maxes.

This was so educational. Thank you for doing the research !

Instead of redesigning they put some fixes to compete ... absolutely disastorous....these guys should be in jail and sorry but ask them to redesign their plane..... don't need to put another fix

You have to be able to overide the system. No red guarded kill switch ??

Beautifully edited and very well related, thanks god they cancel the Iranians order for it.

What bothers me is that MCAS depended on a single angle of attack sensor unless you paid extra for input from both.  This strikes me as a major blunder where redundancy is a usually expected norm.
Satanic ritual, nothing more nothing less and no two ways about it.

This video is not the full truth! Boeing has raised the aircraft as well to accommodate the new engines. Please note that this is not a profit scandal. Boeing has made economy their philosophy. Planes like the 787 and 747-8 show this. What they made was a much needed update to the world's most famous airplane. Surely they also attempted to make the plane safer as well. A plane crash can destroy a company completely. Do you really think Boeing would be stupid enough to release an aircraft that they know would crash? This was an accident. Emphasis on the word "accident". Thank you.

This is what happened when there is a competition and money is involve, and playing with innocent lives.

Money and market share over safety. Way to go Boeing!
silly question if i may... but why didn't boeing simply make the landing gear longer/higher (just like the AB)?? That would have raised the aircraft to the Airbus height. It can't be that expensive or difficult to enlarge the undercarriage, surely?
Also, the americans are so quick to issue draconian sentences for things far less than this, but Boeing gets, and will get, away with it. Oh but we must get people like assange who expose extreme and deliberate atrocities, even with the threat of death for exposing others committing such heinous crimes.... and with this almost 400 people with little kids all stuck in a fuselage sent to their deaths, those responsible for that will get off scot-free.
Sanjay Pathak
Irrational Exuberance .... “you will be flying the same plane as before” or am I making it up?

And how far does minimal i-pad training go .... especially if the god Boeing says ... this is enough!

There is a common thread of excessive clever dickiness running through both the in-service performance of the airbus neo and the boeing mcas engines ... be honest ... these are resl unsuspecting people being killed ....

How the 737 MAX Became Boeing’s Fastest-Selling Plane The real reason Boeing's new plane 2 days ago   03:32

Boeing’s 737 MAX evolved to meet surging international demand for air travel and in the process became its top-selling plane. WSJ’s Jason Bellini looks at how the grounding of the fleet following the Ethiopian Airlines crash could have a significant impact on Boeing’s future. Photo: Getty

Note: This video has been updated from a previous version to modify illustrations of the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320neo to reflect correct nose and winglet shape and engine placement, to describe the planes as single-aisle, not single-body, and to replace images of planes not relevant to this story.
