    If this is a serious defect, then I am curious why roughly 100,000 flights were completed without crashing.

    Boeing could get away from fines.. but they can't get away from major business losses.. Boeing can't control people or airlines..

    Real reason it crashed- pilots who do not know how to turn off two switches and were improperly trained and NEVER trained to fly manually. This video is mostly a lie

    I know it doesn’t have that much to do with the video but see what happen you rush the things? Many people are complaining about crowdfunding games taking too long and that’s basically an example, a tragic one, of what happens when you rush the things, furthermore then you come and complain.

    Or is it because one airline used junk repair parts and the pilots were not well trained in general? Sure, Boing made mistakes. But American pilots handled it a lot better.

    This video only covers the tip of the iceberg. The largest underlying problem takes much longer to explain and boils down to what one author called airmanship. A it of the pilots in these small, foreign, lowpay, regional airlines are not trained to the level of traditional military aviators and basically have only been exposed to aircraft that literally fly themselves. They are able to disable all of the automatic stabilization of the plane with one switch and take over control of it themselves, but that either didn't happen or they didn't have the skills to deal with the situation after disabling them. It was a LONG article. I'm going to dig it up and read it again.

    They should have gone with an adjustable landing gear. Lower the landing gear while taxiing. When the plane is ready to take off, raise the landing gear. Then the plane is in the air, lower and retract the landing gear.

      Then they have to make an entire new plane. To make it higher, they have to extend the landing gears height which took more space and have to be a entire new model to do so.

    Sorry, just a question, what will happen to the MAX if Boeing fitted a new and taller landing gear to overcome the clearance issue instead of repositioning the engines entirely?

    This is a tragically eye-opening wake up call to differentiate what should be controlled by humans and what should be left to machine. No matter how advanced or should I say "intelligent" you think your technology is, it is just a lifeless piece of machine - whether it is good or bad, useful or useless depends a lot on the knowledge and moral of the humans who create it. So before you create anything, whether it is a business, a product, a service, or anything, please be a decent human being first!!

    Lots of hate here for Boeing but I mean seems more like a training thing and an airlines skimping out a bit. Since to my knowledge it's not like the DC-10 cargo door issues, now is it bad these things happened but well so far it's only 2 crashes to my knowledge which if one adds in the rest of the 737's track record and compare it to other aircraft it's about average so far. Plus it's a 52 year old design that due to pressure from well Airbus because that's the way it works they could not really develop a whole new plane with out cutting lots of corners, so we got a remix of an old plane and some executives who bought it did not really check to make sure they trained the guys(pilots and ground crew)on everything.
    Now don't get me wrong it's a horrible thing but hey airlines have different training methods or regiments so maybe they left something out. Again it's a 52 odd year old plane, executives without really looking into it may have just assumed that all they did was change the engines and it would be normal like the previous generation.Though the MCAS sensor problems maybe there was a design fault idk, maybe they should have just taken their time again idk.

    The 737 perhaps need to be redesigned in a big way, especially the engine. It needs to be the same size as the 737-900 but more efficient.
    Hopefully this problem can be resolved quickly.
