The two Boeing 737 Max crashes refer to two fatal crashes involving the Boeing 737 Max aircraft, which occurred in October 2018 and March 2019. The crashes resulted in the deaths of 346 people.
The first crash, Lion Air Flight 610, occurred on October 29, 2018, when a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft crashed into the Java Sea off the coast of Indonesia. All 189 passengers and crew members on board were killed.
The second crash, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, occurred on March 10, 2019, when a Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft crashed shortly after takeoff from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. All 157 passengers and crew members on board were killed.
The cause of the two crashes was found to be a software system known as the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), which was designed to prevent the aircraft from stalling. However, the system was found to have a “fatal flaw” that caused it to malfunction, sending the aircraft into a dive.
The flaw was linked to a faulty sensor that provided incorrect data to the MCAS system, causing it to activate repeatedly and push the aircraft’s nose down. Pilots were unable to override the system, leading to the crashes.
The crashes led to the grounding of all Boeing 737 Max aircraft worldwide and a significant financial and reputational loss for Boeing. The company faced lawsuits and regulatory investigations, and the incident raised questions about the safety of automated systems in aviation. Boeing has since worked to update the MCAS system and implement additional safety measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.

MH370 refers to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which was a passenger flight that disappeared on March 8, 2014, while en route from Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia to Beijing Capital International Airport in China. Despite extensive search efforts, the aircraft has not been located, and the disappearance remains one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history. Here are some key points about MH370:
Disappearance: Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared from radar screens about 40 minutes after takeoff, while flying over the South China Sea. The aircraft was carrying 239 passengers and crew members.
Last Communication: The last communication from the flight was a routine sign-off with air traffic control. Shortly after, the aircraft’s transponder, which communicates its position to radar, was disabled.
Change of Course: After the transponder was turned off, MH370 made a series of turns and changes in altitude, deviating from its planned flight path. It is believed that someone with knowledge of the aircraft intentionally altered its course.
Search Efforts: A massive multinational search and rescue operation was launched in the days following the disappearance. The search initially focused on the South China Sea but was later expanded to the southern Indian Ocean after satellite data indicated that the aircraft had likely flown in that direction.
Lack of Wreckage: Despite extensive search efforts, including the use of sonar and underwater submersibles, no wreckage from MH370 was found for over a year.
Debris Discoveries: In subsequent years, several pieces of debris from the aircraft were discovered on remote islands in the Indian Ocean and the east coast of Africa. These findings confirmed that the aircraft had crashed into the Indian Ocean.
Official Investigation: The Malaysian government conducted an official investigation into the disappearance of MH370, known as the MH370 Safety Investigation Report. The report concluded that the aircraft’s diversion from its planned route was deliberate but did not conclusively identify the person or persons responsible.
Theories: The disappearance of MH370 has led to numerous theories and speculations, including hijacking, pilot suicide, mechanical failure, and more. However, no theory has been definitively proven.
Ongoing Search: Despite the suspension of the official search in 2018, there have been occasional efforts by private companies and independent investigators to locate the wreckage and provide answers to the families of the victims.
Aviation Safety Improvements: The MH370 incident has prompted changes in aviation safety protocols, including increased tracking of aircraft, improvements in communication systems, and enhanced cockpit security measures.
MH370 Mystery: New ‘Barnacle’ Clues In Hunt For Missing Flight | The Unexplained With Howard Hughes
4 sep 2023
The disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 remains one of the greatest aviation mysteries of all time. However, recent barnacle research on airplane wreckage found on an island has given scientists hope in reconstructing the drift paths of ocean debris.
These new findings, published in the American Geophysical Union Journal, utilize shell chemistry from barnacles to trace the unknown paths of crash debris. While the whereabouts of the missing plane remains unknown, this research could potentially shed light on the tragic event.
Christine Negroni, author of “The Crash Detectives” and a former air accident investigator, explains that the challenge of finding missing planes lies in the vastness of the ocean and the limited tracking capabilities.
Unlike a rover on the moon, which can be easily located and monitored, airplanes rely on satellite technology for tracking. Prior to the MH370 incident, airlines would opt for satellite location updates every 15 or 30 minutes. However, since the tragedy, the frequency of tracking has increased. Negroni emphasizes that the difficulty lies in finding the black boxes, which are crucial for understanding the events leading to the plane’s disappearance.

Will the missing Malaysian airliner MH370 ever be found? | The Stream
Heeft 14 uur geleden live gestreamd
On March 8, 2014, 239 passengers and crew members disappeared from radar on board a Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Nine years on, why is the disappearance of MH370 still a mystery?
MH370’s fuselage and black box have never been recovered. Despite extensive searching, there are still no proven explanations amid a list of theories from aviation experts, pilots, scientists, journalists and even amateur internet sleuths using Google Earth. Some of the theories are explored in the new Netflix docuseries MH370: The Plane That Disappeared.
Hundreds of millions of dollars were poured into a multi-nation search effort which ended in 2018. A new search by the US marine robotics company Ocean Infinity could potentially take place this year or next.
Families of MH370 passengers remain desperate for answers and have repeatedly called on authorities to renew their search, though the Malaysian government has said it would not restart another mission unless compelling new evidence was uncovered.
In this episode of The Stream, we’ll look at the mystery surrounding MH370.

45 Boeing to Suspend 737 MAX, But Consumer Advocate Ralph Nader Wants a Total Recall of Deadly Planes
16 dec. 2019
Executives at Boeing are reportedly considering ending production of the troubled 737 MAX passenger jet, which was grounded worldwide after two crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia that killed all 346 people on board. Last week, former Boeing manager Edward Pierson testified to the House Transportation Committee that he tried to warn executives about safety concerns four months before the first deadly crash, as well as before the second crash, but his warnings were ignored. We continue our conversation with Ralph Nader, longtime consumer advocate, corporate critic and three-time presidential candidate, whose great-niece Samya Stumo died on Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March.

Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin became a symbol for the senselessness of the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. Anthony ‘Maz’ Maslin and his wife Marite ‘Rin’ Norris were faced with an unbearable loss when they lost their three children and their grandfather Nick Norris, died aboard the plane that was shot down over a Ukraine warzone. All 298 passengers and crew were killed in the incident. “Our world as we knew it was absolutely over in that moment and we just started to say, ‘when the world ended’ and that’s how we refer to it now,” says mum Rin Norris. The challenge of how to survive their loss was all-consuming for Maz and Rin. The couple were part of a strong and supportive community in Perth’s Scarborough district and a group of friends surrounded them, bringing in meals and making sure that they weren’t left alone. Friends formed a “web of love” to support the couple.
As the fifth anniversary of the MH17 tragedy approaches, Maz and Rin are telling their story for the first time. They want to thank the people who helped them and honour their kids and Nick. They hope their story of overcoming intense grief might be helpful for others.

52 Boeing – what caused the 737 Max to crash? | DW Documentary
1 nov. 2020
In March 2019 a Boeing 737 MAX crashed shortly after takeoff in Ethiopia, killing all 157 people on board. What went wrong? Did Boeing hush up concerns about the safety of the aircraft? And what role did US aviation regulators play?
The crash involving Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 came just four months after a Boeing 737 Max had plunged into the sea in Indonesia killing all 189 passengers and crew. The aircraft was grounded following the second crash and remains so today. The shockwaves reverberated throughout the industry, raising questions about Boeing and the regulatory authorities.
Both tragedies have been blamed on faulty software – software that the pilots didn’t even know existed. The documentary shows that malfunctioning software was just a small part of the picture. Instead, it alleges widespread systemic failure and blames market forces for the fatal errors. Did Boeing care more about profit than safety? Could other models produced by the company turn out to be affected?
The makers of this investigative report show just how much the production structures of commercial aircraft have to change, if we are to avoid similar crashes in the future.
