Boeing/Trump: Don't ground our unsafe planes
Who doesn't ground the planes - which carry hundreds of people - when multiple accidents and reports of "losing control" are reported?
The Boeing CEO and Trump, that's who:
The head of Boeing reportedly made a personal call to President Donald Trump to vouch for the safety of the 737 Max 8 jets, two-thirds of which have been grounded globally in the wake of two fatal crashes of the aircraft in five months.
The European Union announced it was grounding the planes after the Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday that killed 157 people. The same aircraft operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air crashed in October 2018 killing 189.
And (there are reports of this worldwide):
Airline pilots on at least two U.S. flights have reported that an automated system seemed to cause their Boeing 737 Max planes to tilt down suddenly.
The pilots said that soon after engaging the autopilot on Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, the nose tilted down sharply. In both cases, they recovered quickly after disconnecting the autopilot.
As described by the pilots, however, the problem did not appear related to a new automated anti-stall system that is suspected of contributing to a deadly October crash in Indonesia.
