HUNDREDS OF 737 MAX PILOTS SUE BOEING OVER 'UNPRECEDENTED COVER-UP" | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

HUNDREDS OF 737 MAX PILOTS SUE BOEING OVER 'UNPRECEDENTED COVER-UP"

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Over 400 pilots have joined a class-action lawsuit against Boeing, accusing the company of an "unprecedented cover-up" of "known design flaws" on the company's top-selling 737 MAX, according to the Australian Broadcasting Company.

The MAX, first put into service in 2017, was involved in two fatal crashes over the course of a year; the first off the coast of Indonesia in October 2018, killing 189 - and the second in Ethiopia, killing 157.

The lawsuit, filed by a plaintiff who goes by "Pilot X" in court documents out of "fear of reprisal from Boeing and discrimination from Boeing customers," accuses the Chicago-based aviation giant of "an unprecedented cover-up of the known design flaws of the MAX, which predictably resulted in the crashes of two MAX aircraft and subsequent grounding of all MAX aircraft worldwide."

The pilots argue that they "suffer and continue to suffer significant lost wages, among other economic and non-economic damages" since the fleet was grounded across the globe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; it is high time that one of our aircraft manufacturers take full responsibility for what happened with the MAX design.

I would love to see whoever signed off on this, at Boeing, tried, convicted, and jailed for a long, long time, to let other aircraft manufacturers understand that this is NOT something they can do, and with which they can get away.
