Ongoing safety and production issues at Boeing

Or just see the “Rate” column, where 1000–2000 feet per minute seems normal during takeoff and landing. Your link doesn’t show how many passengers were screaming, unfortunately.

I was thinking along similar lines, but just assumed it was drivel so didn’t bother checking. :man_shrugging:

Wtf is going on with Boeing. :slightly_frowning_face:

Presumably they’re going to be descending as fast as the airframe will allow to the target altitude. That’s likely going to cause a lot of panic and stuff flying about.

Will get my aviation info from elsewhere, thanks. :whistle:

Boeing to plead guilty to fraud in US probe of fatal 737 MAX crashes

Boeing has agreed to plead guilty to a criminal fraud conspiracy charge to resolve a U.S. Justice Department investigation linked to two 737 MAX fatal crashes.
The plea, which requires a federal judge’s approval, would brand the planemaker a convicted felon. Boeing will also pay a criminal fine of $243.6 million, the Justice Department (DOJ) said in a document filed in federal court in Texas that provided an overview of the agreement in principle.
The charge relates to two 737 MAX crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia over a five-month period in 2018 and 2019 that killed 346 people and prompted the families of the victims to demand that Boeing face prosecution.

Robert Reich has a four minute take on how Boeing became (in his words) a “sh&t company.” Like many things in North America, this goes back roughly to the Reagan era.
