"Well, you've got that M S anti stall system that system that was supposed to prevent crashes. Instead blamed for perhaps causing two of them, at least partly and people out there including the union representing American Airlines pilots saying that their concern. Learned that the new training is perhaps not adequate. That was part of the issue here. The, the plane was doing things that pilots to varying degrees, rather, didn't clearly exactly understand what the new systems were designed to do what they were doing. So that's one of the concerns, that's a big deal because the point of this plane, it was sort of the aligned Boeing was walking a two pronged approach saying one hand you're going to get revolutionary economics. All a new plane all the right ways. But at the same time, a plane that you could just sort of drop into your fleet, and the same pilots viit same mechanics could work on it. Well, the, the problem was that there seemed to be more differences than they were. They were saying and the question here is just how much training do pilots to fly the plane, and the more they need the more expensive that also is for airlines, and the less attractive. Perhaps the max is to airlines. So these are all extraordinarily important considerations. All of it, obviously safety is the very most important consideration of all. So when is it likely to be back in the air test flights any day now carrying passengers probably not before about September based on just kind of watching what airlines are doing with their schedules. American Southwest Airlines, for example, of taking the max out of their schedules until early September. And I would say that's not a deadline. That's an at least because their lines don't wanna take an airplane out and then put it back in. That would be complicated once they've already cancelled flight. So at least September in the US probably longer in other parts of the world, the FAA's counterparts around the world, sort of feel this pressure to, to do their own scrutiny here after what happened with this, this credibility crisis that Boeing kind of have accusations of not having done enough in the first place.

"Said he loves the show, but he's sick and tired of the Florida torture line. Commercial he actually turns the station off when it comes on. We have a commercial for them. I don't know dude. I'd never heard it. He says he says he heard it. He's a second time. He's emailed about it. I've, I've not heard a Florida, Georgia line commercial, unless they have a show here or something, I don't know. Do they follow them? But they have a podcast. You know what I'm excited about this this, I'm actually going to go see Cody jinx out west this. Oh, cool for one of our summer vacations, my wife and I just bought tickets. We're gonna go see Cody jinx at the amphitheatre red rocks. So it coincides in July with part of our vacation. So we're going to go to it. That is going to be all that. It'd be sweet can't wait. Robber, mole is going to speak at eleven o five will carry that live right here. Speaking of travel, I think we're going to drive when we go out there super Dave because you always do anyway, for the most part, I typically do I like taking road trips out west? It's just fun to watch the terrain change. But apparently, if you're planning on flying, it's going to be a real, it's going to be an awful fest. And Ryan burrow is here with us now on NewsRadio eight forty W H from ABC, and he's got more on this apparently Ryan. They're taking a bunch of the TSA folks and moving them to border patrol. Yeah. I just want to put this in your ear. Imagine. Dave before thanksgiving travel at the airport times, three months. Is going to be airlines projects, June first, which is Saturday through August thirty first two hundred and fifty seven point four million passengers flying about twenty two point eight million per day. That's up three point four from last year. Which, by the way, last year was a record average domestic place, actually pretty cheap three hundred and fifty dollars. That's down for the fourth straight year down sixteen percent from two thousand fourteen but what is going to make this high volume even worse is a couple of things you mentioned DHS wants to move about four hundred vs airport screeners to assist with border operations TSA's been struggling to keep people in their positions. It's been a high turnover rate over the last couple of years. So trying to get the people trained up, get them in the jobs. And then, of course, you've got some hundred four hundred being transferred to border operations that could potentially limit their capabilities of staffing up at some of these airports. Which you just have to play back a couple of years and remember the big long lines. We had there. And then, of course, the Boeing seven thirty-seven max. Have been taken off line by United American Southwest Airlines. So they're trying to compensate by switching some things around moving some flights and it's gonna be fun out there. Let's just put it that way. Yeah, it's a convergence of the perfect storm, I guess, so I guess we're gonna send the TSA to the border to touch immigrants. Junked now. Is that what we're gonna do? So, like when they come in compare going to hit the Pat, you down, buddy is that how that's going to work now ranking members. I mean, this is this is a big concern that even congress is taking a look at ranking members of the Senate committee on commerce, science and transportation actually wrote a letter to DHS saying that this is not good guys where we need fully staffed, you know, TSA terminals at these areas now DHA says they're going to minimize this. They're gonna limit or limit the participants from the airports, that are already stretched in, but, you know, I guess, we'll have to see how the scheduling works. And if they're able to keep the staffing up to par. I'm not sure the TSA folks are close to be border patrol. Roll people. Are they? Well at the check points I guess, the, the job qualifications are very similar with what they're checking people for. I don't know specifically what it is that they're seeking, but it would be taking personnel from these airports and moving them to these locations. Well, that's going to be interesting. So basically what you're saying. I mean, are you got vacation plan for this summer? You going anywhere? Interesting besides I'm with you, man. I'm Dr we're gonna do some camp Johnson. But yeah. But on a plane dude, I if it's honestly, if it's within a day's drive, or now I think this summer, I'll just wherever I go even my wife and I are thinking about doing a west coast driving trip. And I think I might just I think I might just do that with you just do the whole thing driving. I don't care. So I thanks, buddy would present it Ryan take care have fun. Yeah. We're gonna send the TSA down to the border, and they're going to be like they're going to have to Pat you down yet. What was that episode of episode of south park with an eight to check in? Present when they were going to go to the restroom, go through the DNA to. The toilet security administration. I can't say anymore. You're just going to have to Google the Google south park. TSA is Google south park's. USA only goes it's crass but it is funny. He is. Okay, back to the we had to complain about Florida Georgia line. The somebody, I don't we're trying to figure out how do we get those commercials? I don't understand. Okay. So many of the show, you can text us. Five to six dollars, six five six five. I listen to all three hours of your show pretty much every day because I keep it on while I'm working at home. I've never heard of Florida Georgia line commercial, I would change the ten on a minute. Also. Stacey Stacey would change them as well. What kind of commercial would they do accept a concert spot? Hold on a second. Apparently the commercial is on the app. So it's on the iheartradio for streaming. Okay. So it's yeah. It's probably something to do with that. Somebody texted the show, the commercials playing on the app. Please bring back the and tax relief. Let's see here. Oh, there was a couple of other texts. I wanted to respond to. Oh, where is this? Somebody said another one that was about the commercial. Yes areas. I love when you guys get on, on the commercials, okay? The texas. Oh, five oh, two two three zero six five six five. Somebody texted said I don't know what Muller's going to reveal but I know who does biglou that too. So the guy with three girlfriends. That's so awesome biglou yet to like you. That's awesome. I love you people. Somebody wanted to know how they could get access to comment on my Facebook. You have to be a friend. I you know what? I never did super Dave, you're not even on Facebook. Now, I'm still working on my manifesto. Okay. I never switched over to a public page and I probably should have done that. But I felt like first of all I just I don't like view myself as that. I'm just kind of a guy with a microphone and having a good conversation with people every day in an FBI hat. So it today. So it felt weird to turn it over to the public figure even though I know I know. And I'm aware that I'm a public figure, but it just felt weird to do that. And I guess I should change it overnight. It's like changing your relationship status, isn't it? Yeah. We'll have five thousand friends, and you can follow me. And if you follow me, you can't comment on the post, but you can see the post and you can share the posts. But if you are a friend, the problem is I've got about a thousand people, I know live got about a thousand friend requests in Q. So I'm thinking I should probably switch it over. But I don't know how to switch it over and keep everybody in the. Family. I don't wanna bump, everybody out and start all over. So I don't know. We'll see if we can figure that out have some have some teenager Email, I hate Leland at W H, S dot com and give you. Yes, yeah, maybe, that's what one nine year old so anyway, you can follow me and you can see the post and you can share the post. But if you wanna come at you actually have to be a friend, and I just added three more today because three people decided they hated me and they got out, they don't me. And so you just have to put the request in, and eventually, I'll get to you. That's all I can say. All right. Total side trail. The Mueller thing, so Paul miles just citizen Email from the newsroom said that a source familiar with the matter, tells at ABC special counsel, Robert Muller statement is expected to be substantial and to last eight to nine minutes, okay. I don't know what he's going to say. I know it's going to go one of two ways either. It's going to be a long version of James commes cover my ass. Fees are live. These are dumb lights them live or it's going to be the other side, and it's going to be more completely distancing himself from the circus is taking place. Now, now, let's look at molars character and his past Muller is a political animal, who doesn't like to be seen as a political animal his four hundred and fifty eight page Muller report was designed to start the chatter that we're seeing right now and it was written by people who are in the tank for what the Democrats are trying to do. And also the same people who investigated Hillary Clinton found that there was a number of crimes. She committed chose to ignore them. And then decide to go after President Trump. So Muller's been involved in this whole Kabbah. From the beginning. So either he's going to give the Democrats, what they want a reason to impeach because believe me right now, they're sitting on a powderkeg, they want to impeach the president so bad. There was no crime there and Muller can't change that there was no crime there. But he can come out and say something like I just didn't have enough evidence though, I felt like this probably happened. He could vary much do that. And if he did it would be apoplectic. The Democrats would go over the line. They would jump on board day would impeach the president, which I think personally would be the best thing for President Trump because it will just annihilate the Democrats chance to win because the Senate is not going to let them be impeached. And it's all a bunch of nothing. He could do that. He could add fuel to the fire. But let's look at his past, and let's look at who he is. I think he gave the Democrats gift that they didn't know what to do with how to do it. I think the political winds changed. And I think more information came out between the time they plan to do it. I think I think I think Muller thought this was going to be easy. I think it was going to be I'll go in. I'll do the investigation del impeach him. It'll be good. That'll be my part in history. But everybody will see me as above the fray and totally objective. They were above the fray. Ri- all pro-clinton people then on his team. I don't think he is. I'm saying he likes to pretend to be above the fray, he wants to look like he's above the fray. Okay. So we're just analyzing his personality here. But I think during the process, more stuff came out, that they didn't expect to come out that altered, the investigation for one thing they actually found out that there was no crime there for another thing other investigations were unraveling, other threads that made it more difficult for them to do what they wanted to do is easily, as they could. So now the fire in the kitchen is hot. Muller doesn't like a fire in the kitchen. He wants to be as far away from the fire in the kitchen is he can because he wants to be perceived as being above the fray, so that brings us back to he might be distancing himself given what's about to come out about the deep state, and he might want to run this, far as he can the other way. I got another one here. Let's see here. Oh, no. This is just guidance on how we're supposed to take this. Yeah. Eight minutes is what they're saying the statements going to be. So they've time this puppy out. Do you think the White House has seen it? I doubt it. I doubt it. Why think it's interesting. I think they have I think it's interesting that the DOJ announced the statement was coming like they were like, oh, yeah, we've got more is going. He was operating under the umbrella of the DOJ.

So it's not really going to have a huge impact overall in their operations. Is it? Well, the weather is causing problems in Denver today. But it is going to have an impact about two hundred and fifty flights on MAC. So the problem is they will try and protect certain routes. So they're gonna have to cancel other flights in other areas. So there is a bit of a ripple effect more than two hundred flights are going to be cancelled that is styles of flyers. I think we came up with a number of about forty three Thousand Oaks, you know, fly on this aircraft the week. And so there's there's going to be impact if this goes on.

What the reason that they went ahead and grounded was because they could see from data points of the flight path from a system that things out where the aircraft is that it was somewhat similar between the two aircraft. That doesn't mean. They're connected. But there was. So much pressure on the FAA. They went ahead and decided to ground them the data from the black boxes will tell us. Is there something inherently wrong with this plane is another possibility of pilot error? Should these stay on the ground? Or can we resume flights better safe than sorry? We're talking with ABC news aviation correspondent David curly. This is going to have a big impact on Boeing. I would imagine because well their stocks seem to rebound a little bit yesterday. But they took a hit stock wise, and they may end up having to retool these planes. Well, they're working on a software fix that will deal with the what we saw in the first crash. So I mentioned maintenance problems in pilot error in the liner and Indonesia, but because there are bigger engines on this version of the seven thirty seven Boeing also added new safety envelope, which forces the plane to nose down if it thinks it's a stalling, you know, kind of falling out of the out of the sky. Boeing didn't really tell folks as much as they would have liked to have known that this new software was in there. The problem with that software was there was one piece of data. That would tell it the nose down Boeing is redoing the software. So that'd be multiple data points before the plane noses down that's several weeks away. Still. We don't know if ET had anything to do with that. If it did would with the software fix fix that as well. So a lot of questions still all right? Thanks a lot David curly with ABC news. He's every aviation correspondent five eighteen now KTAR, and let's talk. Some other modes of transportation, namely, the roads. Here's Dani Sullivan from the valley Chevy dealers traffic.
