    This is funny, do you both not see that at this point, safety does align with profitability? Before it did not. Now it does only because a bunch of people died. Money drives safety when it...

    So when the plane crashes due to a software flaw, is that a programmer error? Pilot error? Plane error?

    Read somewhere (maybe on AVHerald comments) the pilot was interviewed and specifically did not lower the gear on purpose. The one engine was certainly oscillating up and down, but like you noted,...

    Yep, just read that. Guessing it has to do with error handling in the case of lost input. I guess the good news is that they are doing thorough non happy path testing.

    I'll agree with one of the AVHerald comments, this is another example of piss poor control design and they're lucky they didn't lose the plane.

    Pretty good splice job if it's fake. Did you see the board flip out of the back of the truck from the wake turbulence? Most of the workers are looking at the right things.

    It seems Simon is not giving the pilots/pilot updates by Ethiopian all the benefit of the doubt here.

    This article is quite interesting and it explains one theory of why they only briefly thumbed the switches near the end.

    In most cars the RPM gauge is not necessary because you can hear the engine and in a standard you can feel it as well. There are clues about the available coefficient of friction from the instant...

    I agree. Ironically, they were focused on flying the plane, not trying to reverse engineer a fatally flawed system design.

    Looking at the numbers and the slope on the graphs, it does seem like...

    Actually, from what I understand, the pilot can grab the spinning wheel and stop it, which means that the electric motor actually has less force than the pilot's hand. Would the jack screw motor...

    Thank you that makes sense. So the elevator is hydraulic which means power assisted. The stabilizer trim is pure mechanical linkage and the forces will increase as speed increases and the controls...

    Great link. Here is an excerpt:


    The way I read this, is it becomes physically impossible for the Pilot not flying to move the trim wheel under those speed and elevator conditions. Perhaps some...

    I will ignore the debate on the technical aspects of the training. Boeing issued a safety bulletin to all MAX airlines instructing them to have the pilots review the training on how to switch it...

    As widely speculated the AVHerald is now reporting the pilots may not have actually been trained on Trim runaway in MAX.

    Sorry, VW + every other diesel manufacturer out there. The only reason VW took the big hit is because they were German (i.e. not American) and they were the most brazen which is why they were the...

    Nice video. Didn't realize it was such a large mechanical wheel in the flight deck. Now why didn't they announce the jack screw finding while announcing everything else?

    I was paying close attention to this since it was first announced. It hit the lowest point at the opening on the first day. Not enough of a discount IMO. They only dropped ~11% and less now. You...

    Thanks Gabriel. I never read that 747 report until now. I think all the discussion about that accident is extremely misleading. The weight shift really wasn't much of a contributer at all. The...

    CNN reports that the pilot called in technical problems and requested a return to the airport. That leads me to believe it was not a meteor or similar type of circumstance.

    Beaten around resulting in overextension and jam. The wind gusts were below the posted acceptable values. They might have to update the guidance on that.
