Boeing and the FAA have Erred in the Aftermath of Two-Deadly 737-MAX8 Crashes

While it may be true under strict scientific analysis that both aircraft manufacturer Boeing and the United States (US) aviation regulator, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), have acted within the perimeters of passenger safety by not grounding Boeing's 737-MAX series aircraft following two deadly crashes within five-months, nonetheless they both have erred in keeping a loft a stellar standard in the commercial airline industry.

Last Sunday's crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, a Boeing 737-MAX8 on the heels of last October 29 crash of another MAX8, Lion Air's Flight 610 in Indonesia, was more than sufficient to demand that the manufacturer take a second look at the full safety spectrum of the new aircraft's system.

While China, Ethiopia, Indonesia, the United Kingdom (UK), the European Union (EU), Singapore and other nations were quick to ground the MAX8 following the second crash, the US and Canada continued to operate the airplanes. However, by noon earlier today, Canada issued a grounding of all MAX8s and by 2:30 p.m., US President Donald Trump finally ordered the FAA to ground the problem aircraft.

Fortunately, there have been no other reported accidents involving MAX8s since last Sunday's tragedy. Yet, Boeing and the FAA have failed full commercial airline passenger safety by allowing the planes to fly in the US under the circumstances of the two prior accidents and amid a ban by the rest of the world.

Hopefully now Boeing could make any necessary fitting changes to get the MAX8s back into the sky and to hastily resurrect the proud reputation of the 737 aircraft as a sound people mover.
