    The 787 battery problem grounded the aircraft for almost 6 months costing Boeing hundreds of millions of dollars. The fix was basically put the "new" batteries in a special box that would port out a fire from a termal runaway!.......It is interesting to note what the outcome of the JAL Boston Battery fire. Had it occurred somewhere over the pacific, we would have had a downed aircraft with major loss of life. How was the original battery design approved? Interesting......

    The narrow-minded swamp thinks they are superior to the rest of the world. The rest of the world will leave the US isolated since the US has shown their true colors with aviation safety. The administrator and the secretary didn't want to do their jobs, so the "biggly one" stepped in.

    Time for the Article 2 leader to replace those who failed to do their jobs in protecting the public with aviation safety.

    The acting Administrator can't get out of the way of leading from behind. Lock the revolving door!

    First off, Elwell is an acting Administrator. He is giving the impression he made the decision, but the President rightfully issued the order as it appeared the FAA was dragging their feet.

    The main point is 346 people are dead and no one seems to know why? Yes some foreign airlines have inferior training compared to Europe and the US.

    I have heard options from pilots that fly the Max that there is nothing wrong with the aircraft. Yet there are Aircraft operation Manuel changes and addititional training on going for crews. Boeing has issued procedural changes and software upgrades in the MCAS system.

    BTW the White House will look into why FAA management accomplished very little over the last five months before the second crash occurred?

    Just like the Scarebus' old push button throttles, some designs shouldn't be changed or be modified. I'm sure the Max is a nice flying airframe when everything works.

    If things are getting too complicated to fly, maybe they are too complicated to regulate?? Or, maybe it's just plain incompetence?? You wouldn't think a safety organization would be corrupt and in bed with the OEM during certification. :eek: The regulator has become an embarrassment to aviation safety. They are more worried about what a computer tells them about risk than doing the right thing about the flying public's safety.

    It is agreed.
    Sully is a pinhead.
    Does the US Air Force know their pilots need more than 200 hours before flying jets?

    A B-767 falls out of the sky for no reason.
    Two Max-8's fall out of the sky with control problems.
    Boeing is introducing the 777X with folding wingtips...
    What could go wrong? :confused:

    They delayed the public intro of the 777X that was supposed to happen on the day after the Ethiopian 737 went down. Coincidence? President Trump got the low down on the 'systems'(BUAP) by a certain someone in the know the Day after too, to which he made the correct decision to ground the Max for now. FR24 showed all the 737 Max 8s being ferried(non revenue flights(crew only) allowed under the terms of the grounding of) to mostly Phoenix, Houston, etc, a couple days ago.

    I just lost a lot of respect for Sully. Although he was calm an collected so we are lead to believe for him to blame this accident on "training" after yes they did find somewhat of "smoking gun" and is insulting to the flight crews is totally irresponsible.

    Just heard the same thing. The investigation begins. Has the FAA just been "Rubber Stamping" whatever Boeing has been telling them. It's about time.
