But government inaction may have been ... to blame for the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX on March 10—the US government shutdown reportedly pushed back a fix to the aircraft's software for more than a month.

I would blame starving Ethiopians before I would blame a US president.

Solution is to hire janitors for all future flights that way when everybody dies it can be pinned on them.

Shareholder value!!!

Somebody actually reads the link and posts the essential facts
... government inaction may have been at least partially to blame for the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX on March 10—the US government shutdown reportedly pushed back a fix to the aircraft's software for more than a month.

Further Reading
Indonesia 737 crash caused by “safety” feature change pilots weren’t told of

On March 11, Boeing announced that the company "has been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX, designed to make an already safe aircraft even safer." The shutdown of non-essential operations at the FAA caused work on the fix to be suspended for five weeks ...


because of the government shutdown. Starving Ethiopians are blamed for that responsible for that because they have no radio/cable/web propaganda network to fight back.

I hope Ethiopians take Boeing to cleaners since ultimately Boeing is responsible for releasing something that is not safe to fly (safety enhancement should have been released before planes were allowed to fly). PROFITS! are more important than safety, which just distracts from shareholder value.

Unfortunately, I doubt that Ethiopians will get much out of Boeing since they do not have enough money to lawyer up.

Leftists: "Trump is responsible for crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia!"

Meanwhile, the largest operators of the 737 MAX are US Carriers, with no crashes or incidents of course.

TDS has become an epidemic.

I knew a TDS sufferer would come on here and blame Trump for the plane crashes, since Trump hand built those planes himself.

Honestly, I have my doubts that people in shithole countries can fly an airplane even if it has good autopilot.

Yes one of the many who's blood is on Trump's hands. 8 Americans too, right?

I guess shutdowns can have unintended consequences. Further proof Trump is not the mental genius he claims to be.

Simple - did you notice any difference between the government being open and the government being shutdown?

"US pilots who fly the Boeing 737 Max have registered complaints about the way the jet has performed in flight, according to a federal database accessed by CNN."

"In one of the complaints, a captain reported an autopilot anomaly which led to a brief nose-down situation -- where the front of the aircraft pointed down, according to the federal database. In another complaint, a first officer reported that the aircraft pitched nose down after the autopilot was engaged during departure."

Just as a benchmark:

There are 387 total 737 Max planes worldwide. First ones were put into service in May 2017. We know airlines fly the same planes multiple times each day.

From Wiki:

..."After one year of service, 130 have been delivered to 28 customers, logging over 41,000 flights in 118,000 hours and flying over 6.5 million passengers."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_737_MAX

So, those stats were through May 2018. How many more flights have been taken since then?

And there have been two crashes in almost two years, both NOT in our country. There's been zero in the USA.

Hmmm...

Yep...

...."U.S. airlines flew more than 7,600 flights in 737 MAX aircraft over the past month, according to an analysis by WUSA9. Southwest, which has 34 MAX 8 planes, flew more than American and United combined for a total of 4,043 flights between Feb. 12 - March 12."
https://www.wusa9.com/article/news/l...7-da3b0bc1bde9

So, 7,600 fights in one month equals over 91,000 the past year in the USA without a crash. Would that be considered safe?

Meanwhile, 109 people died today in car crashes, 109 died yesterday, 109 the day before, 109 the day before that, 109 the day before that, etc...

If Trump was so concerned about the safety of Americans, why didn't he put a ground stop on cars?

Was there a fix in that the FAA didn't get to because the government was shutdown?

If it's because of a government shut down then it's Nancy's fault.

1) Trump wasn’t the only one to create the shut down. Pelosi dug in her talons and refused to do anything resembling a compromise for all that time.
2)Boeing shouldn’t have released this software update until it was tested. They actually are to blame and will be the ones to get sued, not Trump or the government.
