So, the civilised world acts as one on this safety issue.

That leaves the US and a few third world countries as hold outs.

As usual...

Well Jim finally Trump has accepted that planes that fall out the sky are not safe.

As far as I know, the US hasn't grounded their fleet of 737 Max 8 jets yet...

Last I hear, Frump has given the word, Boeing is left with stock unsellable.

This just in: US grounds Boeing 737 Max planes

There are only 74 (out of more than 370) of them owned by US airlines, so no great shakes.

For Boeing, yes. Court cases galore from the families of the dead passengers as well as the owners of the aeroplanes. They will drag on for years too. Lawyers' paradise.

You are asking about stalls?
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stall_(fluid_dynamics)
This airplane stalls because of the placement of the extra heavy engines that give it fuel efficiency and longer range.

You'd think the stupid system would hand over control to the pilots after they've issued so many manual corrections. :dunno:
