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
