I just watched William Langewiesche interviewed on CNBC about his current article in the NY Times Magazine.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/18/magazine/boeing-737-max-crashes.html?searchResultPosition=1
I may have recommended Langewiesche's aviation articles previously. His Vanity Fair pieces on the Hudson River crash and the loss of the Air France plane off South America in 2009 are the most informative investigative pieces I have ever encountered. For this eminent journalist to tell the interviewers today, and to publish his findings in the newspaper of record, that the crashes were preventable and that the pilots should have known how to adjust the trim tabs might very well throw some high octane av fuel on the fire. Previous discussions about the 737 Max here on MFO demonstrated a lot of expertise and passion among the participants; I imagine the same sort of interest might be piqued again.
