346 people are dead – but don't ask so many questions

A shareholder at Boeing is a good opportunity for the company's boss, Dennis would have been to meet Muilenburg, answers to the many questions that after the crash of two Boeing 737 Max are coming in October 2018 and March. For example, what has led you from the point of view of the heads to crash the machine.

Muilenburg, so it shows a Boeing posted Video, spoke at the Meeting about a quarter of an hour on these topics. He said a few words of regret and stressed how much the incidents, Boeing made to create – expected, but then, how safe is the Boeing aircraft. Every day would be traveling 5.3 million passengers in the company's machines.

Why two of the flights were, however, not sure the left Muilenburg in the dark. He spoke only of a "chain of events". One of the links in this chain had been incorrect data of a sensor. A control software has been activated, only the pilot support, said Muilenburg. You can adjust the flight behaviour of the 737 Max to the "in-flight behaviour of the previous 737-Generation". In the case of both accidents had been activated due to incorrect data in the System. Errors in the Design of the control software itself, so the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), not mentioned Muilenburg. The MCAS System has rather been in accordance with the safety requirements developed and certified.

A listener noted that it is not in the Design of the Software provided could be that one of the flights the MCAS System is equal to 21 Times activated and the nose of the plane again and again, is pressed down. Muilenburg said that "in some cases," prescribed procedures "are not fully" followed had been – and indicated so that the pilots would have made errors.

"Simply not true"

the Boeing-737-Max machines that are currently on the ground, received by the authorities of a marketing authorisation, should be playing at a "improved" version of the flight control system, the "chain of events" breaking through. To change the deck in the responsibility of Boeing. Tested the Update already: on the whole, have been carried out with this new Software, Muilenburg, yet 146 flights with about 246 hours of flight time. In addition, almost 90 percent of the 737-Max would have seen customers, Update on the flight simulator in action. Soon the 737 Max will be one of the safest airplanes could fly, claimed Muilenburg.

The Boeing-chief, who is advised after the crash and personally to the criticism, dismissed both reports as "simply not true", according to Boeing security have neglected to use the new aircraft as quickly as possible to the market. A resignation he not consider, rather, he wanted to fight for the "safety and quality, and integrity."

In the course of the event, participants Muilenburg talked again and again to a possible defective Design of the MCAS system, but every Time Muilenburg dodged them. Instead, he stressed again and again, such as Boeing attempts to make air travel safer – "every day". With a short "Thank you" adopted Muilenburg, turned to the side and went. "346 people died. You can't answer a few questions?" someone is calling. However, Muilenburg don't remember, he looks once to the questioner.

However, Muilenburg, when the shareholder got to meet also support. The shareholders elected all nominees to the Board of Directors – including US President Donald trump's former Ambassador to the United Nations, and Nikki Haley. Boeing had pitched Haley in February, surprising for the Post. The 47-Year-old had delivered to her office in the UN at the end of December after two years. It was, in the meantime, as a great bearer of hope of the Republicans, and was already as a future presidential candidate in a conversation.

problems in the Dreamliner

the pressure on the company not decreases, were meanwhile, recent reports in the press. Most recently, the Wall Street Journal had written that Boeing did not notify the customer that a warning system should inform the pilots about the faulty data of Sensors had been disabled for the 737-Max models, and probably only available at a surcharge. In a unclear formulated communication Boeing announced now that the warning message "to all aircraft was not working, because the security feature was not, as intended, enabled".

problems has Boeing, moreover, now, with the model 787 Dreamliner. After the New York Times had reported last week about alleged manufacturing defects with this model aircraft, the FAA on Monday a new Directive for the machinery, which will apply from the beginning of June, and additional security checks. The newspaper report says that the group have received in the past ten years, repeated warnings on security risks, but partially ignored. (Editorial Tamedia)
