Nearly two years after Boeing’s brand new 737 max aircraft jets crashed in Ethiopia and Indonesia killing 346, flights have resumed in the United States, Europe and Canada. But whistleblowers at Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration as well as the families of those killed aboard the two fatal flights argue that the Max is still unfit to fly. Much of the blame has been put on MCAS, a piece of software that malfunctioned, causing the planes to stall and crash. But lobbying, technology and a revolving door between company and regulator may be creating an endemic problem greater than a single software malfunction. As The Federal Aviation Administration recertifies the Boeing Max jet for flight, Vice World News looks at a culture of competition that may be endangering the lives of passengers around the world.
