        • After a Service Bulletin for the Operating Manual was issued by Boeing The FAA released an AD (Airworthiness Directive) related to the Lions Air 737MAX crash.

          According to the AD, analysis performed by Boeing showed the defect could lead to repeated nose-down trim of the horizontal stabilizer, thereby compromising aircraft controllability and leading to excessive nose-down attitude, “significant” altitude loss, and, ultimately, a crash.

          • ATC recordings of a Las Vegas controller suffering a stroke while on duty.

            That's difficult to listen to. Good the pilots noticed something was wrong, coordinated with each other and made sure somebody was checking what's going on in the tower.

            Has footage of the engine acting up while taking off. Sounds and looks quite scary.

              • I'll throw this in here. It's a video showing Eurocopter's ADASYS (Adaptive Dynamic System for Helicopters) tests and the noise reduction that can be achieved with such a system.


                Note: The Bo 105 in the distinctive "Giraffe" camo seems to be same that was used for the "Ophelia" tests.

                    • Somebody in Boeing will be sweating balls over this... the MAX is a flawed design and will bight people in the future.

                        • They took shortcuts and this time it's turning its ugly head. Should hear teh stories from my stapdad when he was working for MD and what happened when Boeing bought them out and how work quality dropped. Boieng played catch up to the A321 and used its company muscle to get the MAX approved, and they even tried to pin it on LIOn Air... investigations might sy otherwise but im pretty sure the airlines will be suspicious.

                              Can it not be fixed? In the short term?

                                The problem is the new bigger engines and their placement. The general aerodynamic balance makes it unstable in some conditions. That's why Boeing added Mcas(basically an ESP system like on cars). Boeing obviously tought it would just assist and help the pilot 'in the background'. Which it probably have most of the times. But under certain conditions(ascenting to march height apparently) it'll work against the pilots as we have learn. New software will probably fix it. The problem is the lack of information and actions from Boeing. Mcas is just mentioned once in the instructions on 737 Max. The rest is history.. still evolving
