My God, if this is true this is HUGE. Safety analysis of the 737 Max had "several crucial flaws". Seattle Times reporting that "both Boeing and the FAA were informed and were asked for responses 11 days ago, BEFORE the second crash" of the Ethiopian jet
11 days ago, The Seattle Times informed Boeing and the FAA about its story on a safety analysis finding several crucial flaws of the 737 MAX and asked for a response. Four days later, a 737 MAX plane crashed in Ethiopia.
EXCLUSIVE: Flawed analysis, failed oversight. How Boeing and the FAA certified the suspect flight control system on the 737 MAX. Boeing's System Safety Analysis of MCAS was flawed.
quite an expose from the Seattle Times --> “Both Boeing and the FAA were informed of the specifics of this story and were asked for responses 11 days ago, before the second crash of a 737 MAX last Sunday.”
Amazing reporting by on the fatal flaws in the Boeing 737 MAX's flight control system—and the regulatory capture within the FAA to hastily approve it. Essentially, this plane could try to crash itself because of a single faulty sensor.
Holy sh*t, this is bad: "Both Boeing and the FAA were informed of the specifics of this story and were asked for responses 11 days ago, before the second crash of a 737 MAX last Sunday."
Important and comprehensive reporting on the 737 MAX from . Crucially: “Both Boeing and the FAA were informed of the specifics of this story and were asked for responses 11 days ago, before the second crash of a 737 MAX last Sunday.”
I’m just catching up on the Seattle Times’ reporting on how the FAA came to certify the 737 MAX back in 2015 and it really seems like a major scandal.
Who at the FAA was in charge of safety assessments for the Boeing jet model that's crashed twice in 5 months? In some cases it wasn't the FAA at all - the gov't let Boeing do it. Boeing's safety analysis was flawed as it rushed to catch up w/ competition
I’ve now read this amazing Seattle Times story through twice and I cannot imagine how Boeing could have tried to keep these planes flying. There’s a long investigation ahead, but I would imagine Boeing needs some extra liability insurance
Flawed analysis, failed oversight: In the rush to certify the 737 MAX, the FAA delegated more of the work to Boeing, but the planemaker's safety assessments had crucial flaws. (Story by ) #aviation
Wow, this is an incredibly damning story about how Boeing and a regulatory-captured FAA killed at least 150 people, and probably over 300!
"Both Boeing and the FAA were informed of the specifics of this story and were asked for responses 11 days ago, before the second crash of a 737 MAX last Sunday."
This is a must-read tour de force by about Boeing, the FAA and the rush to certify the 737 MAX.
A former FAA safety engineer who was directly involved in certifying the MAX said that halfway through the certification process, “we were asked by management to re-evaluate what would be delegated. Management thought we had retained too much at the FAA.”
My God. Boeing's System Safety Analysis "failed to account for how the system could reset itself...Both Boeing & the FAA were informed of the specifics of this story & were asked for responses 11 days ago, before the second crash of a 737 MAX last Sunday."
Wow. The 737 Max's problems paint a picture of a company and a regulator in thrall to bean counters and politicians rather than physics. Pro tip - physics always wins..
*MUST READ*: The FAA let Boeing itself certify a dangerous flight control system now suspect in 2 crashes. Brought to you by who has followed Boeing for 2 decades and started asking questions even BEFRE the Ethiopian Air crash.
The 737 Max certification is disturbing. Single sensor, >3x input with no max (full authority), and zero thought of elevator input remaining for pilot. This isn’t a correct safety analysis and wonder what else was missed
Some really deep - and quite damning (of both Boeing and FAA) - technical reporting on the 737-MAX.
✈️ 🇺🇸 Safety at risk... The Seattle Times informed Boeing and the FAA about its story on a safety analysis, finding several crucial flaws of the 737 MAX and asked for a response. Four days later, a 737 MAX plane crashed in Ethiopia. via
Update: This extensive article points more strongly to a software problem by Boeing where two sensors existed but it only checked one, and it had effectively unlimited authority to change controls output
How many of you remember when - almost two years ago - I said to pay attention to airplanes? It was due to the Energy Shift I spoke of.
Flawed analysis, failed oversight: How Boeing, FAA certified the suspect 737 MAX flight control system – The Seattle Times
Boeing did not tell pilots about new software that crashed the first 737 Max (and, likely, the second)
While vetting Boeing's new plane, FAA asked Boeing to do a lot of the vetting
Wow, I was wrong. The experts and pilots I spoke to were wrong. This is insane.
This Mar 17 update has some new info about the stat risk standards, & a review of everything else.

What an indictment: "Both Boeing and the FAA were informed of the specifics of this story and were asked for responses 11 days ago, before the second crash of a 737 MAX last Sunday." Flawed analysis, failed oversight
This article was researched/reported BEFORE the Ethiopian Air crash. Deeply troubling re both Boeing & FAA & suggests both made decisions aimed to better Boeing’s bottom line at expense of pilot training, passenger safety & diligent oversight.
