    Captain Sully did the best for "true" aviation safety. Mr Babbitt did the worst and showed his true "swamp creature" bias!!

    Come on "biggly one"', Drain the Swamp!!!

    Amazing......Boeing never thought a crash like this could happen. The FAA did not evaluate the data from Boeing and obviously did not know that Boeing never tested the MCAS if It failed. No one tested this?

    Pilot training is a factor in these countries. Who is looking at their training programs. If an airline does not fly into the US then the FAA does not look at that countries airline training program.

    Boeing sells planes to anyone that will buy them. Maybe they should look into the countries training programs!

    No one expected an accident like this. Especially two within 6 months killing 346 people.

    I wonder, could this have happened in the US? There are a lot of questions and the NTSB is not as involved because the accidents occurred in foreign countries !

    meanwhile the costs to Boeing are mounting at a rate of 100 million a month! Funny I read no one wanted to get the management mad with too much testing, so it was just not done.

    The investigation continues as the aircraft has now been grounded for over 15 weeks

    What next?

    Ethiopia has one of the only half a dozen Max simulators. The simulators have been found unrealistic based on flawed data. Sully said he can understand how the crews run out of time. The pitch over maneuver hasn't been used to unload the control pressures in a long time. The "regulator" has lost all credibility being the last in the grounding. Where is the simple fix if it was just a simple software problem?? The "manufacturer" had more than 6 months to fix the problem since the first crash!!!
