Oh f##k, reports of a 737 crash today near Jakarta.

Regardless of whether that has anything to do with the 737 max problems that is the last thing that Boeing and airlines need.
It's an old bog standard 737, so not at all related.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines ET 302 crashed near Addis Ababa

A lot has happened since this thread was last updated. In the meantime, the Boeing Max is flying again in most air spaces but with at least one notable exception. However, the fallout continues. Mark Forkner, Boeing's chief test pilot at the time, has now been charged with offences related to this whole sorry affair. https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/forme...indicted-fraud .

Of course it is useful to have a scape goat but his role appears to have been limited to only one aspect of the general campaign to minimise the certification and pilot training costs.

Of much more interest is the justification and facts presented for the decision to allow the aircraft type to continue flying following the Indonesian Lion Air crash, the first of the two fatal crashes, when it must have been obvious that a design fault was the cause of that crash.

Re: Ethiopian Airlines ET 302 crashed near Addis Ababa

I will not fly on the Max anytime soon. Not only that but Iím actively trying to avoid Boeing aircraft full stop if possible. If anyone follows aviation news actively, they will know Boring have had a multitude of problems with different aircraft - not made headline news, as have not led to accidents so far.
