I just grabbed that from the NG tech manual. Iím assuming that the MAX has them as well?
One big read button on the yoke that disables ALL automatic functions, including MCAS!

I donít fly the 737, but the regional airliner I have flown for the last 20 years gives total control to the pilot once this button is pushed. Not even the yaw damper is retained. I mean Jesus H Christ! What the hell has happened to simple common sense in design?
