Boing is a real "Trump" company; it cant stop lying.

Boeing boss rejects accusations about 737 Max jets that crashed
‘We don’t make safety features optional,’ Dennis Muilenburg tells AGM in Chicago

The boss of Boeing has denied accusations that its two 737 Max aircraft involved in fatal crashes lacked an optional safety feature, which might have alerted the pilots to technical malfunctions that partly caused the accidents.

“We don’t make safety features optional,” Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing’s chairman and chief executive, said at the company’s annual meeting in Chicago on Monday. “Every one of our airplanes includes all of the safety features necessary for safe flight.”

A preliminary investigation into the Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max crash last month found it was triggered by a faulty “angle of attack” sensor, which monitors the inflight position of the plane. The erroneous readings from the sensor in turn activated the aircraft’s maneuvering characteristics augmentation system (MCAS), an auto-pilot program that encourages the plane’s nose to dip down.

The crash killed 157 passengers and crew, months after another 737 Max operated by Lion Air crashed off the coast of Indonesia in similar circumstances with the loss of 189 lives.

It was revealed over the weekend that Boeing had removed warnings about pitch sensor malfunction from the standard 737 Max (MCAS) safety package. The Wall Street Journal reported that the warning system, which was present in previous 737 models, was only operative on 737 Max jets if the operator airlines had paid for a package of additional safety features.

Amazing but I will try to remember. I wonder why?

I don't know. It's not bad on my phone. But it's impossible on the laptop.

What board style are you using? On prosilver red fonts stick out as intended. Animavore's yellow name is all but invisible, though.

The red type sticks out very well for me on pycode. What about getting your eyes checked? Seriously. The most common form of colour blindness affects the ability to make out reds and greens.

I had them checked recently. The red is just unusually bright for such a small font size, and I think the contrast makes it tough to read. :dunno: I guess I could increase the font sizes. :hehe:
