That Was Quick; TOO QUICK|
- more lies; more quick fixes
Yes folks, Boeing tried to cut every corner and then some, murdering hundreds of people in two crashes. To beat Airbus in the race to bring a fuel-efficient plane to market they modified a design that couldn't take the extra power making it dangerously unstable. That's WHY they installed the MCAS sticking-plaster.
And they're STILL playing fast and loose with people's lives!!!!!
It's like the badly designed amerikan krudmobiles which even they refer to as "amerikan muscle cars", meaning they're crude with suspension, steering and brakes often not designed to match the engine power. They can't make fuel-efficient cars because in the amerikan idiocracy they don't really understand engines and only make them as big and as powerful as they can as a selling point.
Perhaps because they didn't want to admit it was dangerously unstable, they didn't inform the pilots about it. That would explain why they issued a BS excuse that it was cost-saving not to give pilot training for it. That's similar to Poodleville's krappy "cheesegrater" tower which had bolts which fell off due to their own weight but where they claimed it was "hydrogen embrittlement", despite hydrogen being lighter than air.
The latest BS excuse is that they failed to install additional safety sensors which they will now make standard plus change the software to cancel the MCAS krapware if the sensors disagree: The Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), designed to keep the plane from stalling, reacts to sensors which detect whether the jet is climbing at too steep an angle.
But an investigation of the Lion Air flight last year suggested the system malfunctioned, and forced the plane's nose down more than 20 times before it crashed into the sea killing all 189 passengers and crew.

That's a crock o' s**t. Notice how it only claims it "suggested" some vague malfunction. In all probability the sensors were working as they were supposed to but the daft system thought it was in a stall when it was, in fact, climbing steeply. It contradicts the preceding paragraph which just about admits this.
And NOW, with the "fix", if the sensors ACTUALLY DO fail, the software will override the sticking-plaster and the pilots will have a dangerously unstable krudmobile (on auto-pilot) which stalls and then you're in SERIOUS TROUBLE. Imagine being a passenger and suddenly the pilot has to push it into a steep dive to recover from a stall with no time to tell everyone to put their seat-belts on!!!
Like Elon Musk changing the priority of the sensors to favour LIDAR after a driver was decapitated because his Tesla failed to see the side of a HUGE truck trailer, if the fix was that simple why wasn't it designed like that in the first place?
It seems installing a manual over-ride switch for MCAS is just too expensive! But even that won't correct a dangerously unstable design.
It's like the amerikan krudmobile that had electric door locks, so the spivs did away with the mechanical mechanisms to save money. One elderly driver got locked in and died in his baking-hot krudmobile when his battery was flat. There was an emergency mechanism but it'd probably been a while since he'd read the manual.
Even worse, not only were the pilots not informed of the new "safety" system, there was no way of over-riding it either: Mr Elwell said that he was "confident" in the MCAS system and that pilots were trained in how to deal with a situation where a plane drops suddenly.
However, when asked about how he would have handled a plane that dropped 21 times in a matter minutes as the Lion Air flight in Indonesia did before it crashed last October, Mr Elwell, a trained pilot, said: "I'd have to get back to you on the specific."
So, like Elon Musks's so-called autopilot which made violent and dangerous manoeuvres when in urban locations, the pilots found the krudmobile making sudden and violent drops repeatedly. If you wanted to cause pilots to soil their pants this is an IDEAL way to do it. Perhaps Boeing should be renamed Boing-Boing.
It needs at the very least a re-design to allow the pilots to override this "trim". But ideally, the krudmobile should be recalled and all of them (yes ALL) should be scrapped.
BUT IT GETS WORSE! The engines explode in mid-air too! Just like Rolls-Royce engines on the Airbus A380 when they made the excuse that the oil-seals were to the wrong specification (thereby implying there's nothing wrong with the design): A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft made an emergency landing at Orlando International Airport after an engine malfunction, the FAA has said. The jet was on its way to be grounded in wake of the deadly MAX 8 crashes.
. . .
An unrelated Southwest Airlines flight suffered engine failure after departing New York LaGuardia Airport last April. Debris from the 737-700’s failed engine damaged a cabin window, partially sucking a passenger out of the plane and substantially damaging the aircraft. The passenger was killed in the accident, the first fatality aboard a Southwest Airlines flight.

These hapless clowns started eating one another "the first time the mail-boat was a day late", started both World Wars to parasite off the rest of the World with "jew confetti" have basic "Country & Western" music and can't even cook. They also needed Werner Von Braun to teach them how to make rockets that didn't simply blow-up on the launch pad. They also lie that the Wright brothers designed the aeroplane when, in fact, they were only the World's first crash-test dummies. They certainly can't build cars. Can they be trusted to build planes?
