On the surface, this is a technical failure. But the real story is about a company's desire to beat their rival.Read about Boeing's efforts to get the 737 Max reinstated for flight here: https://www.vox.com/2019/4/5/18296646...Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Boeing should face legal consequences for this. Way too many people died to let this mistake slide.

    this is a crime and Boeing should be liable.

    After more than 300 people died.
    They "fixed it with a software update"
    How...:(

    The 737 Max is like a car that veers left because of a structural defect. Instead of correcting the defect structurally, the manufacturer decides it's cheaper to install a computer software that forces the steering wheel towards the right whenever it senses that the car is going too much to the left. Will you feel safe in such a car?
    After two crashes with this car, the manufacturer decides that he'd better have the software depend on two sensors instead of just one. Now when these sensors disagree, the software simply switches off. So you are then left with a car that structurally veers left and no software interference. The manufacturer is sure you'll feel it's safer now and will resume buying his car.
    Furthermore, the manufacturer claims that because his car will eventually have undergone such massive scrutiny, it must surely become one of the safest cars to hit the road! And it will gain this great reputation without the expense of structurally correcting the structural flaw. As always, he says, safety is his top priority!

    3:33 no MCAS means “MAY CRASH ANY SECOND”

    You can not use a computer to compensate for a design flaw.

    Boeing got greedy and farmed the computer programming out to
    $9 per hour dotheads.

    You know it’s bad when in the 60 Minutes interview, even pilots said they don’t want to step on this plane

    How about a $1 switch in cockpit, MCAS OFF!

    I just realised. if you are watching this on a computer and laptop, you have better equipment than many 737 max pilots got when training.

    Boeing 737 MAX pilots be like
    "there are five forces of flight
    - lift
    - gravity
    - thrust
    - drag
    - mcas"

    If you turn off the MCAS you now have an aircraft that is known to be dangerous without it. Nice work, Boeing.

    You can cut your budget but some day you will pay the price.
