This is an excellent comment. "Pushing on" in spite of irretrievable situations can be very common in these types of tragedies. RIP.

I would agree brak. The Board has culpability as well for some of the poor decision making that lead to Boeings current downfall in the eyes of the world.

You are correct Murphy. I use three alarms in different devices for critical events (like getting to work on time.) I haven't been late for twenty years now, and yes my colleagues notice.

This. Exactly this. Now that Boeing has publicly stated that they won't go the aerodynamic fix route, they have dug themselves a deep hole.

Hello Slip and Turn!

May I postulate a speculation? You raise a good point that perhaps MCAS might be a bit of a red herring, that perhaps all was not right even before rotation. The behavior of...

733Driver; The info on the web about this "accident" are quite revealing. The hubris and idiocy of the PIC are staggering. Luckily they didn't kill a lot of folks on the ground.
