      Del Dmitrii planes, yes, because pilots are far more highly trained at flying than your average American or Italian driver, planes are far better maintained than average car and the sky is a lot more clear then your average road. So yeah, your average plane is. But not 737 Max's.

      Dexter Francis your understanding of the point i made and of how to argue a point correctly without reverting to a straw man is flawed, as what you say has nothing to do with what I said. But OK genius, if what you say is correct and it is solely down to pilot error, why are all 737 max's grounded and why are Boeing updating their mcats software and training? If there was burning wrong with the owner and the software and the training - why the fuss?

      +Guinness - Your understanding of the certification process is flawed. The plane is not certified to fly safely outside it's placarded limits - which, based on the data in the Preliminary Report - is what the crew did for over three minutes before the crash.

      Another example of corporate greed and negligent company executives making short-sighted decisions to drive profit in expense of innocent people.

    It's very irresponsible to give final conclusions about an aerial accident by considering Youtube videos instead of a criminal investigation. This channel shall be banned!

        Maybe they should have made landing gears longer and then engine wouldn`t have problems fitting. Would make it more costly tho.

            Defects in car production also cause a lot of casualty every year. However, it seems no one cares about it. Every one reacts so slow comparing to aviation industry.

              Even the 737-800s have engines that are much further forward and higher than the original 737s of the 1960's. Image search "1967 737" and you'll see the pencil-like engines tucked fully under the wing.

                  Boeing did too many work arounds to get this plane off the ground. Instead of raising the plane and keeping the engine in the correct placement. Disgusting Boeing. I will never get on a plane that needs software to fix a "work around" issue. They did the same crap with the Dreamliner. Took a bunch of parts from different countrys that didn't match then put it together with work arounds. I will only book a flight with Airbus's from now on.

                    Southwest didn't even ground their fleet. I just got back from the airport after a trip on one of them. The whole time the engine was sputtering and constantly making high pitched shrieks and then going really quiet, over and over again, as well as sudden small turns, which were immediately negated with a manual turn in the other direction. Never flying Southwest again. Corporate scum

                          Umm if the whole problem was that the plane was too low to the ground, maybe invest in larger wheels.....

                            It’s important to recognize that most products, especially technologically advanced ones require multiple components and instruments that simply aren’t available in one place. Materials for production are sourced from all over the world. Assembly is made in stages and in different locations during the manufacturing process. All businesses practice this. This why it’s also difficult to pinpoint who is responsible for the tragic accident where people lost their lives because the parts making up the plane are from many different sources. I’m curious to why the MCAST wasn’t just turned off at the moment they lost control or just switch to manual? How much time was there between take off and it’s last communication before plummeting in the Java sea?

                                Lion air (JT 610) captain and main pilot Bhavye Suneja was my friend & neighbor. This video reminds of him again, takes me into deep silence and makes me think of how these big billionaires (better to call them white-collar murderers) are playing with the lives of innocent people just for few more billions.

                                      Ummm.... For starters: in many U.S. right-wing states you have the legal rights to pursue and shoot ANYONE who pose a "perceived threat" to your life, rights, family and properties.

                                      That American vigilante law, FYI, does not exclude the shooting of the corrupt richs nor corrupt Executives who are knowingly mass murdering people, be their names BOEING or Perdue Pharma or even Mark Zuckerberg for that matter

                                      Achtung: I'm NOT suggesting hat ANYONE should go out and shoot corrupt Executives who hideously murder people, such as Zucks and the Perdue Pharma billionaires, for profits, but factually based on the U.Constitution's right to self-defense ALL U.S. Americans citizens do have that theoretical right to Stand Your Grounds even against mega Corporate billionaires.

                                      Until theory meets and becomes the common practise, you never know your real rights as a People nor as an individual.

                                          My wife's bestfriend was on that plane (Lion Air). We don't need new software and training, we need justice.

                                            I wouldn't fly in one of those now. Software update or not. Patches are fine for an iPhone or something non life critical, but for a jet.....

Please note that this is not a profit scandal. Boeing has made economy their philosophy. Planes like the 787 and 747-8 show this. What they made was a much needed update to the world's most famous airplane. Surely they also attempted to make the plane safer as well. A plane crash can destroy a company completely. Do you really think Boeing would be stupid enough to release an aircraft that they know would crash? This was an accident. Emphasis on the word "accident". Thank you.

                                                                                            Pilot: copy that, we’ll simply set climb to 35° and quit flying the plane.
                                                                                            Boeing: no, you need to fly the plane and make sure the plane doesn’t increase its angle of climb
