Boeing’s MAX crisis

Last night ABC Australia released the following investigation on its 60 Minutes prime time investigative reporting program. Do watch.

The 60 minutes report does not tell us anything new. But it does bring the story together highlighting short cuts and compromises in how the airplane was built and certified through to the terror that must have been experienced by crew and passengers on the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airline crashes.

Boeing’s approach to the development of the MAX and their reaction to both crashes reeks of a casual arrogance that is shocking from a company with its history and traditions.

Boeing will of course survive – with individuals and the corporation hiding behind a phalanx of lawyers.

Would I board a MAX at this time – no f***ing way.
