Airline carriers ground aircraft after deadly crash

A growing list of airlines around the world are grounding their fleets of Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 people on board.

  1. The problem is the engine design! Why the fuck would they make it fuel efficient and place it more forward making it pitch up. The sensors are also defective. Then the MCAS gets conflicting readings. No redundancies at all. Very scary!! They should just put back the old engine design or retire this series all together.

  2. It’s time to install emergency parachutes that deploy from the tops of airplanes in the event of emergencies ; you can potentially save the passengers, crews on board and the airplane itself. It can slowdown the descend of the plane .. install them in 3 separate parachutes just in case one of them fails.. stop making excuses and start innovating .. too many lives LOST.

  3. β€œ[The 737] MAX's two engines are powered by the latest fuel-efficient technology. Because the engines are larger and have more thrust, Boeing had to mount them farther forward on the wing and slightly higher — basically so they wouldn't strike the ground on takeoff or landing. To compensate for the engine's mounting position and greater thrust, Boeing designed an automatic system called MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) that would prevent the nose from pitching too high when pilots hand-fly the airplane at slower speeds, typically during takeoff and landing. The nose pitching too high translates into an angle of attack (the angle between the wings and the air flow) that could potentially cause an aerodynamic stall.
    What's problematic is that the MCAS system is invisible to pilots. As a matter of fact, Boeing failed to inform many airlines via the airplane operating handbook that it even existed. If the system has a fault, and it senses an aerodynamic stall that doesn't exist, pilots are left trying to wrestle an airplane that is heading for the ground because MCAS is designed to nudge the nose down, a basic recovery maneuver for all airplanes that are approaching a stall.

  4. Says a lot about the US. It's money over EVERYTHING in this country. China on the other hand, at least is going to take them out of their fleet and see what the issue was. Not only that, but the FED propped up their stock today otherwise it would have severely tanked the market. A lot of shady shit going on in this country.

  5. If I have plan to fly I would be calling the airline to see if my plane is a Max 8 and if it is Max 8 I am not getting on it. Now I think every person with a brain should do the same. How is that not ground for grounding all Max 8 planes.

  6. We don’t know all the facts. IMHO it will most likely point to pilot error… I’m not sure that safety rules/ procedures are the same as in the US…. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. My condolences to the familiesπŸ˜”
