New York Times article: “What really brought down the Boeing 737 Max?”
The New York Times just published a fascinating long read (it took me an hour to go through it) that analyzes in incredibly thorough details the 737 Max crisis. A pilot wrote that story, and it’s about politics, geopolitics, air safety, plane mechanics etc… every angle is looked at. Highly recommended if you have an hour to kill!
I read this earlier today. Granted, my perspective is that of an outsider but I felt that the author tried really hard to paint the pilots in as negative a light as possible while glossing over and rationalizing Boeing’s actions. Interesting read though.
[USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] I agree, the main angle of the article is definitely very different than the one that has been painted so far – that’s what I found interesting about it. I think the author is mostly critical of the way pilots are poorly trained in some countries though, especially for budget airlines, rather than the pilots themselves even if it feels that way sometimes.
