Learned Contributors,
please excuse if this is considered thread drift. If this Ethiopian crash and the Indonesian previously covered on here are proved to be linked. Is
not it odd that out of the total number of B.738M departures since entry to service, no one has been subject to this upset and caught it without loss of life ? Especially since Indonesia as I expect all B.738 Max crews are looking out for a recurrence?
Your time and trouble much appreciated,
Be lucky
The Lion Air aircraft apparently experienced the same malfunction on the immediately preceding flight to that which ended with the accident but the crew responded correctly and recovered the aircraft. They wrote up the incident as caused by unreliable airspeed. Engineers changed some components, did a ground test and declared the aircraft serviceable.
