After Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX crash FAA predicted more crashes

Following Lion Air Boeing 737 Max crash last year, U.S. federal safety officials estimated 15 more fatal crashes of the Max over the next few decades if Boeing did not fix the problem. The analysis was disclosed Wednesday during a House transportation committee meeting that has been investigating the FAA’s oversight of Boeing and the MAX.

The FAA was being run by an ex airline lobbyist. That guy gave Boeing the authority to certify the MAX8 as airworthy. Boeing knew the plane was an air disaster waiting to fall out of the sky. So Boeing pays survivors. Their insurance takes a hit. The premiums are tax deductible. The bottom line takes a hit, but the govt will order some tankers or a new air Force one. The taxpayers fork it out, over and over and over again. But the taxpayers keep electing the same 70 year olds that are owned by the same corporations they protect.

I am not surprised an American regulating body didn't raise alarm bells over an American company. This once again shows why an international impartial regulatory commission is needed, run by the UN. International businesses should not be solely under national regulations. Expecially in countries that choose to deregulate their industries thus affecting the world at large.
