Boeing 737 MAX stall-prevention feature activated in Ethiopian crash

The stall-prevention system on a Boeing Co. 737 Max jet automatically switched on before the plane crashed in Ethiopia this month, initial findings from the plane’s flight data suggest. The conclusion, relayed at a briefing at the US FAA on Thursday, is the strongest indication yet that the same system malfunctioned in both the Ethiopian Airlines flight and the Lion Air disaster in Indonesia.

Well, after this, screw those optional lights and gauges I summarized in a previous aggregate. Boeing might just pull the anti-stall correction altogether.
