4. There is a weird problem with this plane

Boeing changed the software that controls the stall prevention functions. However, if there are problems with the plane's external sensors, the software will override any flight commands made by the pilots. The result is a battle between the pilots and the software.

Boeing did notify the carriers using this plane but apparently the notices weren't forceful about the procedures to override the software.

Mentour Pilot, on YouTube, provides an excellent insight into the 737 Max and what the problems might be:



It's a bit lengthy but highly informative.

6. Look at the countries and airlines that have grounded the 737 MAX. (or won't let them land)

These are listed in posts above...

Those airlines and some countries already believe there is a problem with this plane. Is caution the best way to prevent disaster? Exact same kind of crash in two places by these planes.
