Sometime I wonder if there might be too much automation in these new planes.
Prayers up

2nd brand new Boeing 737 to go down in the last few months.

”It was a brand new airplane, it had no technical remarks and was flown by a senior pilot, and there is no cause we can see at this time,” he added, saying the plane was only four months old”

Tragic and just sad

Yep. And I think both went down about the same way each time (within minutes of takeoff). Sounds like Boeing might have a big problem on their hands

There’s usually at least 1 person on board that has a Clinton connection. Pass the foil please.

We were flying back from Vegas last month and before boarding they announced we had a new plane over the loud speaker. I looked at my wife and said the last thing I want is a new plane. Give me one that has proven it can stay in the air.

Just saw on FOX news that the Ethiopian Pilot had only 200 hrs of flying experience.... That is just unbelievable!!! The US requires 1500 hrs minimum according to a US pilots rep that was being interviewed!!!

The way I understood it was that one of the pilots/co-pilot had 200 hours but that the captain had over 8000...

Hmm. I never heard co-pilot even mentioned in the interview..
I would hate to think FOX would report something that far off.
That's the job of CNN!!!

So I found this.. It's sounds like, from that interview, they have determined that the co-pilot was flying the plane. We shall wait and see.. Tragic no matter what...
