1) in all this #737Max thing, electrical/computer engineers like me trust/listen that what the aerospace engineers say. Whenever we say something (especially here on twitter), we get told: "what do you know?" and "oh, you're a programmer, go away". I'm exaggerating, barely...
2) good software engineering skills is a craft that should not be minimized. Yes, you, the pilot, might know PHP and wrote cool things for your web site. But you didn't sit 4 years in university to learn all the special skills to write good code and to doubt everything
3) coming out of engineering school, I didn't even want to get close to embedded software, I didn't want anyone to die from it. I had the impression that embedded system folks were semi-gods that made no mistakes... So, when I worked at Boeing, I steered clear from embedded

Ένα μικρούλικο (ναι καλά) θρεντάκι περί @Boeing, #737Max κι άλλες αηδίες, στο οποίο όμως θα κάνω μια τόση δα μικρούλα ανασκόπηση στο επιχειρηματικό & δημοσιογραφικό (μη χέσω) παρελθόν. Συγκεκριμένα, θα συγκρίνω τη σκανδαλάρα των #737Max με το "σκάνδαλο" σκουριάς των #Lancia Beta.
Ξεκινάμε απ'το μακρινό παρελθόν. 1980 συγκεκριμένα. Η πάλαι ποτέ κραταιά βρετανική αυτοκινητοβιομηχανία έτρωγε έτσι κ αλλιώς στα '70s το ένα μαπίδι μετά το άλλο από Γάλλους, Γερμανούς κ Ιταλούς. Αρχαία μοντέλα, προϊστορικά μοτέρια, λαμαρίνα που την κοίταζες κ σάπιζε.
Βέβαια, κάμποσα μοντέλα της προσφέρανε ξύλινα (ή από φορμάικα, λες κ έχει σημασία) φιλέτα στο ταμπλό, αλλά η πραγματικότητα ήταν ότι οι διορισμένοι τεμπελχανάδες λόρδοι που κάνανε κουμάντο ήταν πιο χαζοί κ απ' τις μολόχες. Έτσι, η British Leyland πήγαινε κουβά, ενώ κ ο όμιλος...

If the actual perps of #MH17 were to try to blame the #Russians, would @GovernmentRF be interested in expert testimony of pilot #whistleblower #FieldMcConnell @fieldmcc ?

@RusEmbUSA
Barbara, Dan and Russian Federation,



In the case of the two recent B #737Max events @Boeing has been quoted as saying they would remove the #BUAP or #BHUAP..... same device as BUAP but #Honeywell was involved in the creation/installation.
I have patent history going back from 1953 to 2013.

When #MH370 occurred representatives of the Malay government contacted me and asked me how I could create the YouTube the same day the aircraft appeared to be lost.

I told them truthfully that Boeing had been installing...

1/ Many countries have grounded their #Boeing737Max, except the #US & #Canada. @TheCurrentCBC spoke today with a former pilot, engineer, and aviation expert and litigator who said he wouldn't board a 737Max flight as he explained why this plane is not safe (transcript tomorrow).
2/ #Boeing has been working to fix problems on the 737Max by acknowledging, in corporate language, its many problems. The plane has a tendency to nose up, its softwares make the plane do things that the pilots don't want to do, and it is a new way of flying.
3/ Despite its many problems and new approach to flying, Boeing sold the plane as it would sell many others without requiring special training from airlines because training requires money and it would have turned them away from buying the plane. #Boeing737Max

Four months earlier when Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed into the Java Sea it was found that the pilots were struggling with the craft's Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) - one of plane's many brains which was stuck in anti-stall mode. theregister.co.uk/2018/11/27/boe…
