    I bought a shit ton of Boeing Stock the day before the first of three crashes.

    Incredibly it’s probably the #1 DOW stock in 2019.

    Not sure what the hell to do with it. It’s been a monster setting 52 week highs nearly every day. At some point though plane crashes become a bad thing for a company that makes planes.

    I’m up like 25% in just a couple months since my purchase. It’s worthy of a brag.

    Are you going to address the fact that you were wrong about Boeing being in the bottom third of DOW stocks for 2019?

    The October crash, the plane had malfunctioning speed sensors for the previous 4 flights that were supposedly fixed before the final flight.

    I've always been a blind confidence/probability guy on plane crashes, but I just flew into Memphis from Dallas and it was probably the first time I've legitimately been worried we were going down. I've never been turned to the side to that degree other than in a crop-duster level plane. People were losing their shit.

    Spoiler - still alive tho :getmoneyfuckbitches:

    Boeing’s new anti-stall system malfunctioned, I believe, too. The system kept forcing the nose of the plane down. Pilots corrected it more than 20 times, but never turned the system off. The pilots on the flight before said the same thing happened, but they turned the system off and flew manual.

    Don’t believe much more has come out since they found the cockpit recorder. Will likely have to wait for the official report.

    I was going to ask this - so the pilots just kept a malfunctioning system going instead of going manual while seeing it was fucked enough to need to be corrected 20 times?

    I know nothing about piloting a plane but that sounds pretty crazy.

    I think that’s right yea.

    I also saw where American Airlines pilots said they were totally in the dark about the new system. Not sure if the Lion Air guys just didn’t know it was there or if they were too reliant on instruments or what. I also know nothing about piloting a plane so this all seems crazy.

    Boeing stock is getting crushed!

    Well if you are actually stalling, you do want to point the nose down. If they weren't actually stalling then I'm not sure why correcting the plane wouldn't work. I haven't followed the October crash but if they were stalling and not allowing the plane to point the nose down then they probably made things worse. The reason they added this was because so many trained pilots panic and don't want to point the nose down ever even though it helps cure a stall. Maybe the system is falsely detecting stalls because it's using bad information from its sensors. If that's the case then turning the system off is not especially difficult. Or maybe it was a real stall and the pilots tried to "correct" it anyways.

    Cliffs: Boeing convinced the FAA that specific training regarding the system believed to be at fault in Indonesia wasn’t required. Obviously the FAA isn’t in charge of Indonesian (or Ethiopian) training standards, but their decisions are pretty influential.
