REPORT: Boeing Knew About MAX 737 Software Error For A Year Before Reporting To Regulators

 

Boeing knew of a software error that prevented the correct functioning of a safety alert system on the 737 Max for a year before disclosing the problem to regulators and airlines, according to a Sunday Wall Street Journal report.

According to the report, Boeing waited until after the October Lion Air crash to begin telling airlines that the alert system had an issue, and waited five months — until the Ethiopian Airlines crash — to reveal more details. Another six weeks passed before the public and FAA acting chief Daniel Elwell learned of the issue.

The error was specifically related to the “angle-of-attack disagree alert,” which isdesigned to tell pilots whether or not the nose-angle sensor is working properly.

It’s not clear if the correct functioning of the alert system would have changed the outcome of the fatal 737 Max crashes, however. Boeing called the system “supplemental” in a statement provided to Reuters.  Still, the technology is linked to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), which the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has admitted was responsible for the crashes. The MCAS system appeared to misfire on both flights based on information from malfunctioning angle sensors. And while the alert system would not have prevented the malfunction, it would theoretically have alerted the pilots to the problem.

Boeing engineers reportedly learned of the problem in 2017 and conducted an internal review. At that time, they concluded that the problem didn’t “adversely impact airplane safety or operation.”

The House, the FBI, and the Department of Transportation are all reportedly probing the matter.

They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
