Boeing stops production of 737 MAX

The American corporation The Boeing Company has recently been plagued by setbacks. Recently we Reported, like a Boeing-2010 airliner under development (since 777), the door fell out and part of the composite skin fell off during testing. And so, the aircraft manufacturer company informed the public that the production of Boeing 737 MAX airliners will be suspended in January 2020.

It should be noted that in 2018, the corporation delivered to customers a record 806 different aircraft, which is almost 6% more than in 2017, when 763 units were delivered. At the same time, 2019 was a difficult and frankly unsuccessful year for the company.

Before the meeting of the board of directors of the corporation, Boeing shares fell 4%. After that, the company immediately announced that the mass dismissal of personnel has not yet been planned.

The company explained its step (stopping production) with the fact that "certification is being postponed to 2020." In the meantime, the corporation will focus on the supply of already manufactured airliners.

We remind you that before this, the company monthly produced 40 Boeing 737 MAX airliners (this, apart from other products). Over the year, the company has accumulated 400 unrealized such aircraft. So you can understand the decision of the board of directors.

The company's problems began after several of its Boeing 737 MAX airliners crashed, taking a large number of human lives. After that, many countries abandoned such aircraft and forbade them to fly in their airspace.

    It is necessary to quickly admonish and put up for sale MS 21.

    And now it's time to remember that Boeing’s problems are not limited to the 737th.

    Here, a Texas sheriff incidentally captured a dive of an airplane exactly according to the scenario of Ethiopia and Indonesia. The whole difference is another plane. Cargo Boeing 767. Nezhdanchik?
    The news was quite widely published, but was not commented on and no one was hype on it. It is understandable, all media are controlled by bankers. But now is the time to remember her. It's time to hammer the last nail into the lid of the coffin of the corporation. It is necessary to demand from the United States the results of a disaster investigation. And under the guise and to promote the MS-21 with SSJ. SSJ, despite the company denigrating, the aircraft is quite successful.

      to demand from the US the results of a disaster investigation ???
      And demand a piece of the moon?

      Shares fell 4%? Total?? Are you seriously?

      It’s too late to solve problems. Reflash the device. Disconnect. An analogue is put with another model.
      In the meantime, 737 has fallen in price - to reserve urgently. Anyway, the Kremlin is going to buy a large batch of foreign ones, and all MS 21 and superjets are still hanging in the air and there are very few of them.

            Now, if the Russian Federation reserves them for itself in conditions of a general boycott of 737, all Putin’s work to strengthen the authority of the Russian Federation abroad will be flushed down the toilet. This is a fact.

              The devil in the details.
              You can arrange everything in such a way that the authority "rises" - to buy up a part of the shares, agree on the transfer of some of the technologies to the Russian Federation, reserve planes before "repair", etc.
              And you can steal all the money, grab bribes, lower everything, and after 4 years scream - oh, they boasted so, and 4re MS 21 again for a simple one ....

        And if this is not a bug, but a feature? The Americans put EDU on airplanes, and with software firmware they ensure that any airplane can be dropped by turning off control in flight. Just how to call the phone.
        And Malaysia with Ethiopia is not an accident, but a test. Specially selected the most harmless countries for the United States.
        And if the USA tore off 4 billion from Volkswagen for Dieselgate, then the Boeing planned to be responsible for 2 disasters - $ 50 million. For everyone. And more - will not.

      Well, a plane crashed, didn’t this happen with other planes? Hundreds of different reasons can be. And how was he supposed to fall, nose up? 80% of cars fall that way, if it is not a flat corkscrew, etc. And here there are problems with 737, it was in his sophisticated software, 767 is a very old machine in 1982, there is everything there and there were never any similar problems there. Extremely stupid comparison, designed for the illiteracy of individual readers ..

        You do not understand something. It doesn't matter what really happened.
        Nobody already believes that the FSB or the SVR were poisoned by Litvinenko, while Petrov and Vasechkin were poisoned by Skripale. The reason for hype is important.
        And not all fallen planes suddenly turn into an uncontrollable peak. And they fall apart in the air, and they touch the ground (having mixed up the height), and they burn, and the engines stall for various reasons. They dive just rarely.
        And here is a very strange coincidence. You watch the movie. For 2018 third plane crash in one scenario. And, since in the USA, there is a complete informational vacuum.
