I find it fascinating to watch highly qualified and experienced folks take nearly opposite views of the crews’ and Boeing’s respective contributions to the accidents.

I wonder if folks might get...

Whatever you might think about Boeing's assumption that a MCAS malfunction could be treated as a species of runaway trim (apart from the fact that this was beyond at least two crews), I wonder if it...

A reverser test after maintenance seems to makes sense -- by someone at least. One of the major missteps in the the report was that the engineers skipped a required functional test. Of course, that...

IGs have full authority to conduct criminal investigations (as well as audits and evaluations). I'm pretty sure it would be rare for the FBI to get involved just to help -- if it's joining an...

I'm guessing something along the lines of the 737 rudder hardovers would move the column along with the elevators? So you'd need to know control force (or have other evidence) to rule it out?

I read the quote from the FCTM as telling you how to aerodynamically relieve loads: "Accelerate or decelerate towards the in-trim speed." Perhaps that won't be feasible or sufficient in all cases. ...

If it is fake, someone went to a lot of trouble, for what? Though I'd have to give the actors top marks for the way they underplayed their reactions:O

Most phones do have magnetic sensors. I know because my cheap tablet doesn't have one; the compass apps I download won't work. GPS navigation still works.
