    I'm curious what Boeing is doing to really fix the problem with the 737 Max. Seems they really should either go back to the original engines designed for the 737, or redesign the 737 to not need the MCAS (the device that caused the crashes). Be even more maddening then the self certification Boeing was allowed to certify their own planes, not sure what has been to address that problem.

    There the biggest point is the Comac. It will be the main airplane to all of those companies who are partly owned by Chinese government or financed by Chinese state owned banks and those companies which are state owned and where China has big enough influence and then those companies who are just looking the cheapest price. It does mean that Comac planes will be the main plane at all Chinese companies and well as several Asian and African companies as well as Ryanair and similar low cost companies. Those will be bigger market than the rest of the companies so after 10-15 years Comac will be the biggest airplane manufacturer, unfortunately.

    I did an avionics certification at Boeing in 1980. At that time Boeing had TWO competing engineering groups to develop new products. One group was called (the best I can remember) "Product Engineering". The other was called "Staff Engineering". The job of the "Product Engineering" group was to layout the "nuts and bolts" of the product installation (hardware design...wiring diagrams, etc). The job of the "Staff Engineering" group was to test the installation to see if it met all safety considerations. Of course there were many disputes between the two groups...arguing "nuts and bolts" considerations against "safety" ones. I had heard, the "Staff Engineering" groups were downsized and/or possibly eliminated, to "speed up" certification of new systems. If that is true (but I hope it's not), Boeing's move to save a little on development and engineering costs, cost them BIG BUCKS paying reparations for their 737 Max fiasco.... a payout that might have otherwise been avoided if they spent more time (and $'s) evaluating the operation of their new pitch control system...that caused those two crashes.

    I supported the assembly of McDonald Douglas, MD-80's, in Shanghai in the mid 1980's. So China is NOT new to western aircraft assembly and avionics. A Chinese aircraft factory, in Shenyang, also assembled vertical tail sections for Boeing aircraft in the early 1980's. Boeing helped build their own competition by allowing the Chinese to strong arm them into assisting the Chinese aircraft industry and giving up manufacturing secrets to them...in order to get aircraft orders.

    The dollar amounts you have cited seem large to the average person, but the base salary for an undrafted rookie that makes the game day roster is $480k. It's even $136k for practice squad players. With 8 practice squad players, teams pay nearly $1M for eight players that literally don't play. The dollar amounts cited for travel mean almost nothing to these earnings juggernauts. Given the amount of money teams make from just from TV deals mean this is all ready paid for before they even turn the lights on for a season. Good try though, keep it up!

    ETOPS has now changed to extended diversion time operations (EDTO). It no longer applies to twin engine aircraft as the 747-8 was the first aircraft to be granted 330 mins EDTO due to the cargo fire suppression system. It is about system redundancies and back ups on aircrafts and not just about how many engines anymore. Great video though, keep it coming :)

    China will preference its own manufacturers when they reach proficiency. This is inevitable and understandable. Boeing doesn't need to be the world's largest airplane manufacturer to be successful or sustainable. The real challenge for Boeing will be whether the United States government and U.S. airlines are smart enough to prevent China from dumping airplanes on the U.S. market to undermine Boeing.

    Nuclear waste disposal is a political problem, rather than a technical one. As the problem is not properly defined it never gets politically resolved. Buried nuclear waste amounts to replacement of a uranium ore body of long half-life with a store of isotopes with short half-lives. There is already a tremendous amount of natural radioactivity in the land and oceans. Nobody cares about it.

    Sure.....Boeing is not State Owned, but it certainly has lobbyists galore in influencing the U.S. government to give them tons of favors, especially huge military contracts. Remember our Dear Mister Patrick Shannonhan used to work for Boeing, then took on the role of our "ACTING U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE?"; Remember the U.S. government gave Boeing the rights to bypass the stringent inspection and certification needed by the Federal Aviation Administration; How about our Furer Trump suggested to Boeing to rebrand their Boeing 737 Max 8? One more....So China is stealing our IPs and braniac works in the past, present and the foreseeable future, why do we still keep sending the empty planes for China to install the internal components? So they could learn how to build their own planes and we get to call them thief in the future? Digressing a bit here....Why is Tesla building their first foreign factory, the Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai? Aren't we just allow these cheaters to rob more of our inventions? One last thing....Since we hate socialism and communism sooooo much, why are we wearing and using so much Made In China junks touched by those dirty Communist hands? Look, that iPhone in our saintly democratic freedom swollen hands was assembled by the evil doers' nasty hands, human right violators, dog eaters, a country without any freedoms, Black Mirror social credit system implementors, and Urgyurs lockers. We are so much better than China. They need us and we never need them, so let's move all the business and production lines out of that fucking evil country that pollutes the world (by making stuff for us). Humongous mistakes were made! But why the fuck are we not moving the jobs back home, but SEND THEM TO ANOTHER EVIL SNEAKY COMMUNIST COUNTRY, VIETNAM!!!????

      The US is protectionist.

The US needs to reinvent itself, it likely will one day when it finishes its war agender.
