The Boeing 737 Max, the newest passenger jet on the market, works differently. Pilots follow roughly the same seven steps used on the first 737 nearly 52 years ago: Shut off the cabin’s air-conditioning, redirect the air flow, switch on the engine, start the flow of fuel, revert the air flow, turn back on the air conditioning, and turn on a generator. The 737 Max is a legacy of its past, built on decades-old systems, many that date back to the original version. The strategy, to keep updating the plane rather than starting from scratch, offered competitive … [Read more...] about Boeing’s 737 Max: 1960s Design, 1990s Computing Power and Paper Manuals

Boeing 737 published: 17 Jul 2014 views: 830 The Boeing 737 is a short- to medium-range twinjet narrow-body airliner. Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engined airliner derived from Boeing\'s 707 and 727, the 737 has developed into a family of nine passenger models with a capacity of 85 to 215 passengers. The 737 is Boeing\'s only narrow-body airliner in production, with the -600, -700, -800, and -900ER variants currently being built. A re-engined and redesigned version, the 737 MAX, is set to debut in 2017. Originally envisioned in 1964, the initial 737-100 flew in 1967 and entered airline service in February 1968. Next, the lengthened 737-200 entered service in April 1968. In the 1980s Boeing launched the -300, -400, and -500 models, subsequently referred to as the Boeing 737 Classic series. The 737 Classics added capacity and incorporated CFM56 turbofan engines along with wing improvements. In the 1990s Boeing introduced the 737 Next Generation with multiple … [Read more...] about Faulty 737 Sensor From Lion Air Crash Linked To US Repair Shop
opinion Arthur I. Cyr Columnist Published 7:00 AM EDT Mar 23, 2019 Being high up in the air, travelling at hundreds of miles per hour, is not the normal human condition. Some of us react to being on an airline flight with intense concern and anxiety, some with death grips on the arm rests, but most of us react with vague sensations of concern. The fatal crash on March 10 of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 is the sort of tragedy that focuses comprehensive international attention on the inherent risks of flight. For large numbers of people around the globe, that vague sensation becomes focused fear, especially if they will soon be boarding planes themselves. The fatal flight was supposed to be a routine relatively short trip between Addis Ababa, the headquarters city of the airline, to a landing in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. Instead, the aircraft plunged to the ground after only six minutes in flight, killing all 149 passengers and the 8 members of the crew. United … [Read more...] about Ethiopia airline crash of Boeing 737 Max has global significance
