Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

On Spectrum News here in the US it has been announced that the FAA inspectors who passed the plane to fly are to be investigated. It's suggested the plane should never have been certified to fly.

 

Quote:

An investigation is now taking place into how the planes gained certification in the first place. Southwest, American Airlines and Air Canada are among the airlines that use the 737 Max in North America.

This looks like the blame is with BOEING... and not the pilots....

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

Should the software not have been tested on these VR pods that pilots train or have their skills tested in mock up emergency situations ?

Even when this second crash happened some countries were still slow to ground these planes.

What value do they put on peoples lives ?

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

One of America's largest airlines, Southwest, is removing the 737 Max from its schedules due to the continued grounding of the plane.

Boeing can expect some large compensation claims once this is all over.

The Federal Dept of Justice is investigating a 'too cosy' relationship between Boeing and the FAA.

Boeing has conducted 96 flights with the new software fix but it is not expected the plane will be back in service for at least 2 weeks.

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

A new report on the 737 Max and the suggestion Boeing were not as interested in safety as they were with their competition with Airbus.

 

More 737 Max

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

Ryanair's currrent web advert.

"Operating a fleet of more than 455 Boeing 737 aircraft, Ryanair offers the opportunity for Cadets and experienced Pilots to fly our passengers safely across 84+ bases on over 2200 daily flights.

Our recent aircraft order of 200 Boeing 737 MAX 200’s, has created an exciting environment for ambitious pilots who want to become part of Europe’s favourite airline"

Fly 737 Max 200's, really, or are they different aircraft @shutter ?

737 max 8.jpg737 200.jpg

 

@Minivanman   There is a difference between the two aircraft...  the 737 max 8 that crashed, has bigger engines.than the 737 200   as can be seen from these pics  ( google search)

 

I`m guessing that the software on the Max8 was designed to counteract the "imbalance" that the weight of the larger engines caused which also moved the centre of gravity of the aircraft.

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

Read this thread and you will find the 737 and the 737 Max are 2 different aircraft. Many airlines use the 737 and it has a good safety record.

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

It wasn't the 737 200 that @Minivanman mentions though.  It was the 737 MAX 200, which according to this it is a variation on the 737 MAX 8:

Europe’s leading low-cost carrier will be the first airline to operate the 737 MAX 200, a variant based on the successful 737 MAX 8 that can accommodate up to 200 seats

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

737 MAX planes are still being "ferried" around, to storage places.... 

Spotted this......

Re: No Survivors from Airliner Crash

Am I missing something? I can't see any reference to planes being ferried around.

A report on MSNBC last week seemed to indicate all of these planes were mothballed awaiting a decision from Boeing as to what will be done with them.

Boeing is still making this plane on their production line albeit at a slower rate.
