Moses Lake airport has one of the largest runways west of the Mississippi. the concrete is poured to a depth of 18' Many airlines use this airport for testing.

What a disaster.  I hope Boeing can get this figured out and rectified.

After those 2 737 Max planes crashed, Boeing stock went down.  Since there are only 2 companies making commercial airplanes, I figured this would be a good chance to make a few bucks. Surely Boeing would fix the problem and the stock would go back up.
Still waiting for the stock to go back up.

Something in a biodegradable package that had manipulators controlled by an organic substance encased in a calcified case capable of carrying out calculations capable of providing solutions to unexpected problems. Sometimes known as human beings.

Not to stray too far afield, but some of us might recall the Lockheed Electra debacle. Not a software problem in those days, but structural. Now, get this, the Electra became the Navy's P-3 Poseidon, some in service to this day. The 737 Max, or a military iteration, is now the P-8 Poseidon, an even more formidable submarine hunter, and general spyplane. Not that the Navy is in the market for a couple hundred 737s.

Now, Iím not an aeronautical or aerospace engineer or designer, but I wonder, why couldnít they just re-design and engineer the MCAS system and incorporate it into the existing airplanes?  I mean, this is such a waste, and if that  737 is basically the same as any other 737, why not just remove the existing MCAS and replace it with a new one?  Seems simple to me, but then, like I said, Iím not an engineer of any kind.  Perhaps itís more complicated than that.  Or just remove the system altogether so that new planes will function just like the others before it.

Changes is the size of the aircraft,bigger engines and their placement necessitated the difference in MCAS.

Then Boeing has a big problem, don’t they?  Looks like a total re-design of the MCAS is necessary.

Yup,and not all carriers want to foot the bill for simulator time and other necessary retraining. Somewhere cost and safety must intersect,if ever Boeing ever expects to recover.
