I respect both fdr and gums's opinions here and I am reluctant to criticize fellow pilots, in particular the Lion Air crew who at the time did not know of the existence of MCAS, none of us did. However there were fixes to the Lion Air disaster, fixes the previous crew did find but in the over ten minutes of MCAS engagement for Lion Air that accident crew did not. This latest crash, which has yet to be proven is related to MCAS, flew for last I saw at least six minutes. The MCAS system is flawed but I struggle to blame all responsibility on the jet alone *if* these were caused by MCAS, as we need to be honest and look at crew make-up closely. But for the grace of god go I. Hopefully governments, manufacturers and pilots all learn from this.
