nothing new, the software doomed the plane. the sensors which feed the computer were faulty too. Amd the pilots weren’t trained on the nee software. imagine takingvyou car in for a manufactures software safety recall upgrade. as you are driving home the car starts speeding up when you take the foot of the gas the car keeps speeding up. you hit the brakes and they slow the car but it still sppeds up . these planes nosed down to prevent what thee sensors thought was a stall condition. computer drove the plane into the ground..
Exactly, and those of us whom have followed this understand, and know what happened, BUT far left wing VOX whom produced this video being whom they are has turned this tragedy into a political anti capitalist statement.
Their point isn’t an error in judgement was made by Boeing, but that the real reason was capitalism/competition killed all those people, and the World would be a better place if only government was in charge of every aspect of life.
Lefties at work.
Yeah. . .and turning off the MCAS resulted in the third-world “pilots” discovering they can’t fly. . .we’ve flown jets without auto-pilots and AOA indicators since the Wright brothers to today.
System breaks, turn it off and fly the darned jet. Too much for third-world aircrew apparently.
Reported one “pilot” had 200hrs. . .and that’s not enough time to be an commercial instrument rated pilot in the US, let alone the standards to fly for a reputable airline (ATP).
” as you are driving home the car starts speeding up when you take the foot of the gas the car keeps speeding up.”
Happened to me. Put the car in neutral, pulled over and turned it off. No big deal. I hope you have learned what to do now if it happens to you.
Interesting that in both planes pilots were able to defeat the MCAS.
In the Lion Air crash the pilot controlled the plane for five minutes then handed it off to the copilot that lost it. Pilots in the same plane turned off the MCAS the day before.
In the Ethiopia crash, the pilot turned off the MCAS but strangely turned it back on and crashed.
Thanks. No need to watch.
