Avoid The 737 MAX For A While [MERGED]
#1
I'm still looking into this. But in light of the Lion Air crash, Boeing has issued a safety bulletin/warning (and remedy) to operators that the plane will nose over automatically (even when being flown manually!) if it detects the possibility of a stall. It all goes back to airspeed indications.

Aircraft was new. If they dont ground them, I see another one going down.

Very possible. Apparently, it has to do with firmware in the auto-trim system. But the current 10sec "quick fix" at 5k' as happened in the crash just after takeoff...

The only personal experience is that the MAX is a helluva lot more comfortable. So you've got plenty of legroom when the nose is at 85° down. Chuckle Yeah3

Drinks Only makes sense. That and keeping flies from clogging it. But the pitot tube's a no factor in this case.

So planes so smart as to take out pilot error? Cant they just allow it , instead of putting in firmware error???
Flies , we have to worry about flies too???
My, times have gotten weird...

Lmao I've never heard of flies actually jamming a pitot tube. But it was one of those left field theories last week. @Weasel Keeper brought up a valid hazard with icing. At the end of the day, I'm reassured most of us won't be around to see unmanned airlines.

Or... Keep Chinese warships from testing signal disruption equipment on commercial flights as a military display to the benefit of US intelligence agencies.

As much as I'd like to indulge you on this, it's not the 1st time it's happened.

Pilots for US airlines flying 737's drill for this frequently in simulators (faulty trim-response). Boeing has issued a warning to all users until they can find the ghost. What a third-world airlines does with the bulletin is out of their hands. As a MOF, at the moment, investigators are trying to figure out just how many times it happened on this particular plane. Speculation after reviewing maint. logs put it as many as four previous flights before the crash.
