LOL you think Trudeaux or Teresa May made those calls in their respective countries? Their transportation secretaries and ministries did. Guess you think Trump caused the avalanches in Colorado too, huh? 

SodaPopAndRitalin --- 69 days ago -

Well fuzz, flying is a very complex activity and who wants Einstein to be their pilot anyway?

Let the "experts" (who have yet to master closing an umbrella) deal with this issue. We are gon be alrighty.

Because money precedes logic with this administration. Trump probably owns Boeing stock. 

sdanielmcev --- 69 days ago -

Aren't liberals supposed yo be in a horse and buggy now? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 69 days ago -

Well, there's the New Green Deal silver lining! No more plane crashes! 

Let Logic Prevail --- 69 days ago -

Well, it's about time.

We used to be a leader. Now with Trump we are just a follower.



Trump announced a short time ago that the U.S. will ground Boeing 737 Max planes after the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 that killed 157 people on Sunday.
The about-face comes after days of resistance from the FAA, which issued a statement on Tuesday indicating the agency has found “no systemic performance issues” with the aircraft.
The move also comes after Canada joined over 40 other countries that have grounded the Boeing 737 Max, citing new satellite tracking data that shows the Ethiopian Airlines plane had erratic movements similar to the Lion Air plane that crashed off Indonesia in October and killed 189 people. Both planes were Boeing 737 Max 8 models.

Boeing's CEO is personal friends with Trump and called Trump and asked him not to ground the planes.

As more information came out Trump had no choice but to ground the planes.

LLP, you're right.....Follow the money. It is always about profit for IQ45 and his cronies.

If it was about money, why did he tweet that planes were becoming too complicated? If he and his cronies had money to be made from Boeing, why be openly critical of industry you are trying to profit from?

Seems like opponents like to pick and choose the evidence that best fits their political views. 

KwMillennial --- 68 days ago -

How about identifying an industry that Trump will not profit from. That way, you can be on record before something bad happens in the world that you might blame on “because Trump is profiting”.

Or do you just like having that motive in your accusation arsenal that you can use at will anytime something bad happens? 

sdanielmcev --- 68 days ago -

Nailed it, kw

HAHA well this fairy tale didn't age well at all. Despite the FAA allowing the 737 MAX 8 to continue flying in US airspace through yesterday, after meeting with Boeing execs yesterday afternoon, Trump declared an emergency order to ground the entire fleet.

LOL Follow the money...surree thing... 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 68 days ago -

Does anyone have any data that there is something wrong with these planes? 

KwMillennial --- 68 days ago -

I’ve read some articles indicating Boeing is now updating software for their autopilot. Suspicious timing?

Thanks to advice from Soda, I just checked Foxnews for more information but sadly, apparently that’s not the prime source she claims it to be. 

sdanielmcev --- 68 days ago -

The planes are not defective. The protocols are not taught properly. 

KwMillennial --- 68 days ago -

Rough.

Great example of hate speech though. Too bad this is not that topic 

anti-antichange --- 67 days ago -

You must be one of those Faux repeaters. There's alredy evidence their new software is flawed and sends the planes into a nosedive. But you do your best to keep towing that Faux line. 

butch baby --- 67 days ago -

let's stick the gop in one for a joy ride and see how it lands. 

sdanielmcev --- 66 days ago -

But you do your best to keep towing that Faux line. 

I don't watch fox. 

witchywoman --- 66 days ago -

Last Sunday’s crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 killed all 157 people on board. The tragedy provoked global outrage as news circulated that the newly designed aircraft, the Boeing 737 Max 8, has software flaws that make the plane inherently dangerous. A critical software update was reportedly due to be installed in all Boeing Max aircraft — but due to the December/January government shutdown, the software fix was delayed five or six weeks. 

sdanielmcev --- 66 days ago -

Explain how a US shutdown affected Ethiopia. This stupid hatred is out of bounds.

I understood his statement to mean it was a software problem, not a hardware problem.

I read that on Daily Mail and CNN. I didn’t believe it so I looked for a more informative account of the issue.

The Wall Street Journal includes some interesting facts that CNN and Daily Mail deliberately left out.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/boeing-to-make-key-change-in-max-cockpit-software-11552413489


“A software fix to the MCAS flight-control feature by the FAA and Boeing had been expected early in January, but discussions between regulators and the plane maker dragged on, partly over differences of opinion about technical and engineering issues, according to people familiar with the details. Officials from various parts of Boeing and the FAA had differing views about how extensive the fix should be.

U.S. officials have said the federal government's recent shutdown also halted work on the fix for five weeks.

The FAA concluded the delay was acceptable because its experts agreed with Boeing that there was no imminent safety threat, according to one person briefed on the discussions. The FAA also determined that steps taken after the Lion Air crash to inform pilots world-wide about the system's operation were adequate to alleviate hazards.“

Is it not pretty obvious why many news sites left out that last paragraph? 

TinktheSprite --- 65 days ago -

The fix is there on the aircraft. But you have to be *trained* to 1) know it's there, and 2) how to use it. 

butch baby --- 64 days ago -

Is it not pretty obvious why many news sites left out that last paragraph? 



yes. because trump is ultimately responsible then. the faa fall under his administration. he can't seem to get his shot together and administer anything correctly. just like not addressing infrastructure and instead pissing away billions on a wall we already have in all the important locations meanwhile bridges are collapsing in nebraska. trump has brought on the end times.

That's why both are under investigation. Boeing and the FAA.

More collusion.

lol

Pull yourself together ma’am. It’s going to be ok.

The problem with you people is that complain about 100% of what he does and never give him credit for the good things he does. That's why most intelligent people don't listen to you or the media anymore. You think the President is 100% wrong 100% of the time That just doesn't happen. However the upside is that if the media and the House continue to go after him he will be reelected just like Clinton was after he was impeached.
