      I expected better than this from Vox. This is highly misleading. In both crashes the plane had a faulty angle of attack (AoA) sensor responsibility for which does not lie with Boeing. In the Lion Air crash, the previous flight had the exact same problem yet was landed safely. Why did Lion Air not fix the problem before it took off again? After the Ethiopian crash, a press conference was held in Ethiopia saying the pilots did everything right and that's a bald lie. The media nonetheless spread it widely. The truth is that that the plane had an obvious problem well before MCAS was ever activated: warnings were going off right at take-off (none of which were because of Boeing or MCAS) and the crew failed to take any action with the most glaring being to run through the unreliable air speed (UAS) checklist. As a result of their ignoring the overspeed warnings the plane became unmaneuverable. Any pilot that doesn't know the memory items for UAS has no business in the front end of the plane. The Ethiopian pilots had the advantage of having the MCAS checklist right in front of them but they failed to follow instruction to re-trim. They then found they couldn't manually trim because they were going too fast but did they slow down? No, they turned MCAS back on. I'll add that it's no conspiracy Boeing didn't mention MCAS to pilots. That's because if your plane is nosing down uncommanded (stab trib runaway), pilots should already know the checklist for stab trib runaway and running through this is the exact same solution as for an MCAS failure. Since the emergency response is the same there's nothing to be gained by burdening pilots with trying to diagnose the problem in the air. There are far more flights in the First World yet these two planes went down in the Third. That's because there's a difference in standards between the two and it is not the plane they fly (therefore not Boeing). Go ahead and try a make Boeing the bad guy but pilots who have looked at this know better.

    So what prevented Boeing from raising the landing gears or increase the diameter of the landing wheels? Is it an issue with aerodynamics that made it unfeasible?

    On some web sites now you can see what plane is servicing the flight so you can see what you are flying on. For example On TRIP. Even if they will bring back this boeng with updated software I will never fly this plane. And for anybody to continue working with such company if a future they must be out of their mind.

    its much more the fault of the airlines which gave the pilots inproper training for situations like this and how people generally get trained as airline pilots than the fault of boeing. im not a fan of the mcas system myself but systems like it are necessary for pilots nowadays to not drive the plane into the ground every few flights. as airliners get more and more automised, pilot training is way less focused on how to actually fly the aircraft like, well, an aircraft but more on how to operate the automated systems inside the cockpit which makes it necessary for companies like boeing to implement systems like the mcas. of course it is a flawed system, im not arguing against that, but if the pilots would have gotten proper training on the airframes, which is job of the airlines and not of boeing, none of this would have happened.

    It seems Boeing was too protective of their profit, cutting costs in the area of quality assurance -- the result now is a much bigger financial loss for them -- canceled orders and lost potential sales, not just for 737 Max 8 but for anything coming out of Boeing now. What cost-cutting measures have they been doing on their other products? 338 lives are forever lost that left thousands of grieving family members. No money can return their lives.

    This plane has a serious design flaw, I am a frequent flyer, logging an average between 300 and 500 hours per year. I can tell you that myself and other executives at our company refuse to fly on B787 Max, not today, not ever. After speaking with several aviation experts, some of whom work for Boeing, they say that this plane has a serious design flaw, simply applying software to the computer to correct it doesn't solve anything, software can't fix a design flaw. As long as they keep operating these planes, they'll keep crashing. Stay away from these planes, you'll live longer.

    Design fault leads to creating Software and then again Software is being updated. Will it actually solve the purpose? Because the design is still the same which can again cause problem. What if the software stops working the next time which was supposed to stop the stall?? I don't think I can ever trust 737 Max again 😔 I hope they test the opposite scenario as well where plane is reaching stall but sensor feeds that plane AOA is fine, then what happens?? 😲 I don't understand why they created a software which points the Nose down so sharp, it can just dive it little below the maximum AOA allowed. MCAS is actually pointing the Nose to zero AOA which is not at all required !!

    Shallow modern journalism appealing to an audience that wants simple, shallow, explanations. 302 crashed because an angle-of-attack sensor failed, caused MCAS to act based on the failed sensor data, the pilots developed tunnel vision due to the shock of the situation and did not monitor their airspeed, the pilots disabled MCAS, failed to manually trim the aircraft due to their over speed condition, and then re-enabled MCAS in violation of the documented procedures and emergency quick reference card,, causing the MCAS to come back online in a way never designed for, causing the aircraft to dive into the ground.

    here is a recreation, and on minute 7:00 you see how to disengage the trim autocorrection. If not you can not fly the plane manually as Lion air, did, or fight against the MCAS. This part should be explained on your video. Pilots have the obligation to know each button in the cockpit, if they do not know, is a case of negligence ! This is not an obligation of Boeing. it is an obligation of the profession, and also of the flight company, to allow unqualified personnel to fly a brand new plane. Every pilot needs an "adaption training" for each new model on a fleet, this is basic procedure everywhere.

I saw many aircraft accident video, what i got from those video is, 3 minutes too late to fix the mistake = fatal accident ( CMIAW ). From 3:58 fact, those pilot escaped from fatal accident. In Lion Air case..they didnt. What i really want to know is. Is the problem happened to fact 3:58 is exactly the same with Lion Air case or at least, both of case got same "initial problem"?

    What a simplistic summation of the situation. Bravo for giving just enough information to make people pick single side. Hind sight is always so clear. They didn’t rush anything. They simply didn’t anticipate this specific scenario. As machines get more complicated get ready for more of that. Also failed to mention that Boing spent tons of time and money on MCAS to prevent tragedies, as a stall would lead to a crash on take off. And they didn’t want any accidents as that would lead to bad reputation. And how about the fact that some airlines choose not to purchase additional indicators that signaled a sensor malfunction that would indicate a need to disable MCAS. Or how about the fact that Lion Air had poor maintenance and replaced a the airspeed sensor with a faulty one right before the crash?
