The Boeing 737 MAX Air Crashes
On October 29, 2018, Lion Air Flight 610 slammed nose-first into the ocean soon after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia. All 189 passengers and crew on board were killed.
A similar incident occurred on March 10, 2019, when Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed, killing all 157 passengers and crew aboard soon after takeoff from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Both accidents attracted public and government scrutiny because they involved the same aircraft: the Boeing 737 MAX 8.
Both airplanes were new, indicating that maintenance was not the problem. They also had erratic takeoffs, suggesting that the problem had something to do with the airplane.
The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), unique software that is supposed to prevent the 737 MAX from crashing, has been fingered as the culprit in both accidents.
At the time of this writing, investigations are ongoing. But here are some interesting facts about both air crashes and the already-controversial MCAS.
