It’s a little bit more than that, the size/shape of the new engines on the Max created lift. Its effect was maximized in a situation like take-off. The nose will come up faster in the Max. Since that increase in the angle of attack could make the plane think it was about to stall, the MCAS was designed to trim down to Read more

I agree Sam Bur is more serious, but some of his videos are just popcorn fart dry. Biffa at least makes it enjoyable to watch something that is inherently very boring. And this is coming from a guy who spent several summers digging in a trench with a pointing trowel and finding nothing, only to have the trench four Read more

I took a major hit in my Zeni, Solari, and Woolongs today but was able to turn a profit in my C-Bills. Not much of one, though. Just gotta stay strong and hope that Gil makes a comeback.
