2022: The Year the Grassroots Fought Back

"Last evening, we had a spectacular event with the next governor of Arizona God willing. It sure looks like it's going to be trending that way. Kerry Lake. Carrie Lake is a special candidate. Abe homme was also there, Mark fincham was there, Blake masters, I think, had another event. One of the things I want to build out for you today is how the Democrats are increasingly synthetic we've talked about that. They're increasingly artificial. And how much money they have spent and despite all the money they've spent, they can outspend the grassroots. They can't outspend you. They've tried, but there is something that shows the long-term viability. The long-term health of the conservative movement. That is unlike anything we've seen over the last decade. You see, the conservative movement, America first, maga populist, parents party, pro freedom, pro liberty, whatever label you want to put on. We had a choice. We had a choice post January 6th when every major corporation came after us. When the government decided to go after moms and dads that show up at school board meetings, we had a choice when all of a sudden we had our backs against the wall. We could have given up. We could have just threw our hands up. We could just surrendered. We could have said no more, but instead we started to mobilize. And it's very interesting. It will go down in history. As one of the best things ever to happen to the Republican Party was corporations going woke. Now, corporations going woke, created a baseline, where all of a sudden, the Democrats were able to get unlimited amounts of money with very little effort. So they got very lazy. Democrats were able to get money from Coca-Cola and Goldman Sachs and Boeing and all these major corporations, where Republicans usually used to enjoy support from these companies. Coca-Cola said that whiteness is a plague on society, major corporations are saying men can become pregnant and Republicans wanted nothing to do with it. And so Republicans had to decide what kind of party we wanted to be.

"Joining me now is one of my favorite guests and a fellow chicagoan as we share our lament of the downfall of a once great American city. That's not why he's here today to talk about, but we always kind of start with the Chicago update. It is Steve Moore. Steve, welcome back to the program. Steve, every time you come back on the show, another amazing business has left Chicago. Now it's Tyson Foods. Steve, tell us the latest Chicago. I think you still live there. You travel through there, has Chicago finally hit rock bottom. Hey Charlie, great to be with you. It is just heartbreaking to me as somebody who grew up in Chicagoland. And still believes that Chicago is one of the great cities in the world, although I don't think it certainly was when I was growing up. I'm not so sure you could say that today, given the control, the inflation is, I mean, the taxes are so high in Chicago now, the schools are horrific. Corrupt leadership and a lot of the business leaders who I've talked to who have moved out of Chicago, Charlie, they're telling me they could even, they could put up with all of that, but what they can't put up with is that the danger that they face and their employees face having a business located in Chicago with the shootings with the muggings with the crime that is so rampant. And so you're right, this is about the 5th. I mean, look, Sears is out of Chicago now. Citadel is out of Chicago now. Boeing moved out of Chicago. Tyson's food. And by the way, Tyson's food moved out. I mean, my goodness, how bad can it be in Chicago? When you're moving out of Chicago moving to Arkansas, I'm just sort of saying that tongue in cheek, but it is so sad to see, even the Chicago Bears are moving out of Chicago. You see that? Yeah, that's right they're moving to Arlington hikes. The Chicago Bears can't even stay at soldier field.

How the Left Is Destroying Chicago With Steve Moore

"With us right now is a great American. I've known him for quite some time. Steve Moore, Steve, welcome to the program. Hey Charlie, thanks so much for having me. Great to be with you. And you are a great American. So it's a pleasure to be on your show. Thank you. We've known each other for a while and both from Chicago and unfortunately that whole state has been largely destroyed. So you have this great you see that Ken Griffin moved out of Chicago. There's a great article about him. I know this isn't the subject of our conversation, but it's really important. It showed that he is given hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars to the museums, the orchestra, to food banks. He's one of the most philanthropic guys and he's, I don't think anybody in the history of Illinois has given more to the civic institutions of Chicago and he finally had to leave because of the high taxes and the high crime rate in the city of Chicago. And it just shows what happens when liberals ruin a place because all these institutions like how are we going to replace Ken Griffin's money? That's a good question. Maybe you shouldn't have chased him out of the state. And it was you're exactly right. So ran a company called Citadel and started it right there in downtown Chicago, enormously successful. You could point to so many of the beauty of Chicago because of his generosity and philanthropy. And you actually look at why he left in the report, there were three Citadel employees that were mugged on the way to work, Steve. I mean, you and I grew up in Chicago. I mean, this is river north. This is not, you know, near comiskey or U.S. cellular, right? This is the heart of Chicago where people are being mugged at 8 or 9 in the morning or at 5 or 6 at night. Actually, I know you're not here to talk about it but Steve, it's really quick on the Chicago thing. I mean, it's just tragic Boeing is now left. Caterpillars. Caterpillars gone Citadel is gone. And you're right. And they actually had to shut down for several weeks the theater district in Chicago because it wasn't safe for people to go to theater. My point is that, you know, and this is happening now in New York City. It's happening in San Francisco. It's happening in Los Angeles. Los Angeles are great cities are being destroyed by wokeism and this big government

"boeing" Discussed on Airplane Geeks Podcast

"And the reason it was developed was that, you know, when you get a, I don't know, half a million pounds or whatever it was at landing weight stopped and you just missed the taxiway by 50 feet. It takes a lot of power and a lot of time to get that airplane moving on the runway again. And so they wanted they really wanted a pinpoint that. Now, of course, everybody has it. But at the time, that was what they wanted to demonstrate. And they said, we're going to go out and show you in our demo airplane and I went, oh yeah, okay, well, it was going to be tomorrow and I said, oh, yeah, well, what are you going to do? And we're going to do it in A380. I said, oh cool. Well, I've never been on one of those. They said, well, you're going to get to fly it. And we get out of here. You're not going to let me fly. And A380. I mean, I've never even been and they went, no, seriously. We've got to check error. It's going to fly with you and two other journalists. And I'm like, oh my God. And I tell this story a couple of times, but I went out to a little store and in Toulouse, and I bought myself a video camera. I don't even remember what I paid for it. But because I said, if I don't get somebody to shoot some video of me flying this airplane, as long as I live, no one will ever believe that I actually didn't, but it was a grand experience. And Brian, if any of you guys are any of you have a chance to fly on the three 80, you've got to do it on the top deck. Not necessarily in the cockpit, but I'm just saying, on the top deck, because if you're sitting in the cabin and they pour the coals to it on takeoff, you will swear to God the airplane is not moving fast enough for it to lift off because your depth perception, even from, I don't know, what are those windows at that point, maybe 40 feet off the ground or something like that, but and that was the first thing that I noticed when I flew it, the guy, you know, he called rotate and I went, we're not going fast enough. We went rotate. I want, okay, 'cause I was looking out the window and it just didn't seem as if we were fast enough to fly. And he said, oh, you got to look at the instruments from now on. Okay, right, sorry. But that was a great experience. And by the way, it would be hard to be on the top deck and the cockpit since the cockpit of the a three 80s on the lower deck, which is what gives it that ugly big forehead. Not me, but the airplane you mean. Yeah, the airplane, not you. Right. I knew that. Me and the A380, we have the same forehead. All right, moving on. We have an item that max stress got tossed in here, a woman forgets per while boarding flight, ground crew does the unthinkable. And so this is a short little video, but apparently it's gone gone viral. And this is a story about a woman who left her purse in the boarding area or somewhere in aboard the plane, door was closed. He pulled back, somebody found her found her purse and I'm not sure how they knew that it was for a passenger on that plane, but in the video you see an airport worker and you see one of the pilots with the window open with his hands prepared to catch in this airport worker tosses the purse from the edge of the passenger bridge right into the waiting hands of the pilot in the cockpit. Yeah, it was just like a perfectly executed toss. I mean, if I had thrown that thing, I would have been so nervous about getting it to where it to the pilot's hands, I would have muffed it for sure. But it was a perfect toss. Yeah, that was pretty incredible. There's nothing worse than getting on an airplane and realizing this happened to me on Southwest. Oh, I don't know, maybe 6, 7 years ago. I had been somewhere to get a story and I had all the audio. I put it in the flash drive on the side and I had it all stored on my laptop and so I got to the seat and I said, let's see how I'm going to get my earphones out and my laptop and I went, where's my, what the heck's my laptop? Did I already take it out? And I went, oh my God. I said, it's not here. And of course, I asked the flight attendant. She said, I'm sorry, sir. You can not get off. And I said, oh, my God. My whole life was, and then somebody came walking down the island and said, are you, did anybody lose this? It was my laptop. And I'm lucky you. God. I was so lucky. I mean, they were really, I've given southwest my business ever since. Not the business, but business. Some business. I'm sorry. I should clear that up, yes. All right, and Brian, you found something pretty interesting in arrow time. Yeah, so happy that they didn't do this with Air Force One, chop it up and turn it into parts, but there are a bunch of different companies recycling aircraft and pretty innovative ways from buildings to office space. And even taking some of the material on recycling it and turning into bags and other uses, yeah, someone's doing cuff links and just like the folks down the street for me at moto art that are taking aircraft and recycling repurposing them, turning into works of art. There are a bunch of other companies doing that. And I thought that was pretty cool. Yeah, the article is titled ten examples of how old planes are or were transformed into new businesses. Yeah, you've mentioned a number of them. Some of these have been turned into a hotels. There's a jumbo stay in a 747 in Stockholm in a hotel there. There's restaurants or dining experiences as they like to call them. The one in particular is a KC 97. 1953 air force KC 97 tanker. That's somewhere in Colorado serving up serving up meals. And then you could rent a Boeing 747 party plane a BA 747. It's been converted in you can throw yourself or your Friends quite a ship really nice party. Yeah. Only well, it says rates start at around $1300 per hour, which actually that sounds about right. They have to be pretty good friends though, huh?

Inflation Woes Crush Wall Street Numbers

"To the news that shocked a lot of Americans that they got home last night. They saw that Wall Street shots sold off. Big time. So I let me look at what the total percentage of on the doubt was 3.12% on the S&P, it was three and a half percent on the NASDAQ. It was 4.99%. The Amazon was down almost 5% itself. And I'll tell you what, it's probably going to go on for a while. Because the market knows the fed meets every couple of months and is going to raise interest rates a half point every time they meet until such time as inflation is broken because every single person that inflation is the enemy here. And don't worry, if you're unless you're a speculator and you're selling puts and calls. And that's just gambling. I'm not sure Robinhood kiddo, who thought, you know, I was going to make a fortune by trading GameStop and AMC. You expect this and you grim and bear it. If you're an investor, as opposed to a speculator or a trader, you just say, ah, well, you know, that was a good 5 years. And it'll be a year before we start to climb steadily again. Maybe two. But it will, the S&P, the NASDAQ, the Dow, big tech, strong commodities, like P and G, but they always come back. Boeing's got troubles only announced it's moving its corporate headquarters.

"boeing" Discussed on Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast

"Guys in our efforts not to speculate, I think we've been dancing around one thing, which is the possibility of a bad actor being involved in this a German wings or something like that. I mean, that hasn't been ruled out, has it? Nothing's been, I mean, very little is going to rule out at this point. If you buy the online ADS-B data that shows a rapid descent, if you use that as your box and all your theories have to fit into it, of course, that is one that fits. But there are others as well. We just went through almost two years of scrutiny of the 7 37 family. Most of it was on the max, but the max fundamentally is really not very different from the NG. And regulators went through an extremely detailed analysis of failure modes, including runaway stabilizers. And there were instances where Boeing was forced to replicate very improbable runaway stabilizer scenarios and show how either their philosophy of pilot reaction or the design of the new flight control software on the max would render those with as little risk as possible. On the 7 37 max, they implemented cross flight control computer monitoring to protect against some of those, again, extremely remotely probable failures. Not all of those failures had to do with mcas. It says right in the FAA summary report on the mcas return to service that those protections are against mcas malfunctions or any other erroneous flight control computer generated stabilizer trim command. Is it probable that that would happen, especially with the history of the 7 37 NG no, is it possible? Absolutely. The relocation of the wires, which was another big step that max operators had to go through before they could put those airplanes back in service. Those were related to stabilize your wiring too..

"Growing export market in the world, they were ramping up to take about 30% of global single aisle output and it didn't seem like anything could stop that process except of course the deliberate government move to get people to, well, return to the bad old days of a state run economy. And to think twice about any form of consumption, really. So things had been changing, but nevertheless, the general feeling was even with that new lower level of growth. They were still an enormously important market. One aspect of it, though, of course, is that it had been a highly political market. You've got this sort of dual factor ordering system, which ends alluded to before. Where you have airlines saying what they want. But not having those orders converted to firm orders until the PRC government gave final sign off that inherently politicized the process. And because of the trade war with the U.S. and over the past few years, they had been Boeing had been watching its market share diminish. It hadn't really seen any orders of any significance for the past four or 5 years unfortunately for them. And they were all kinds of concerns that Airbus would be increasing. Its market share largely for geopolitical reasons. So it's within this greater context and of course the max recertification debate and the inherent politicization that has perhaps low role that process that all of a sudden this tragedy takes place. And it seemed like what was Boeing's been saying for months that the max was on the cusp of getting clearance to fly again in China, right? Yeah, that's exactly right. And of course, you know, given the fact that they're the only really important market out there that hasn't recertified it and had been deliberately taking its time and recertifying it was pretty clear that that process had been somewhat politicized and there were theories that maybe there'd be some sort of grand trade agreement and it would be a compromise reached and that would accelerate it. But it didn't look like anything was going to make things happen happen faster. And on top of that, you have this situation with resurgence of COVID because of the zero COVID tolerance policy and vaccine perhaps debatable effectiveness really kind of not putting a whole lot of stress upon the system. In other words, it's not like capacity was tight and people were screaming for deliveries of the max to resume. So that gave them a bit of breathing room in terms of the capacity demand to keep slow rolling things. Yeah, I might add to what Richard just said that Abbas has also not found it easy to make any new business in China of late. For both manufacturers, the backlog is becoming small in China that deliveries that are planned for the next few years are really a fraction of what they once were. Abbas has been hoping that follow up order approved by the central government would have happened by now. It has not. And I guess part of it is that for now, China doesn't need any additional aircraft..

"And this is just part of it. So I think while Wall Street's still got to see an airplane, if you look behind the scenes, it's kind of happening slowly but surely. I want to underpin exactly what guy just said because I think the whisk investment has time goes on is going to be very telling for a couple of reasons. There's the upfront, what guy just said, the investment in automation, potentially into EV tools if that market really does develop into its own subsector niche. But what's interesting to me on the financial side is Boeing may have found a way to basically subsidize research and development on the commercial side of this house as it has as all defense contractors do on defense side. If you're in the defense realm, you well know that the government pays for most of the research there, even so called independent research and development that companies do supposedly on their own. They actually get reimbursed for a good chunk of that too. It's a lot of reimbursement that the government pays for in the defense contractors don't like to go off and do their own research because their shareholders don't like them wasting that money. On the commercial side, it's always been dependent on companies to fund their own research, but with whisk we're seeing an example of where you partner up with the venture capital side with entrepreneurs somewhere else. Maybe they've unlocked the secret to subsidizing commercial research for the long term. The other thing to point out, I think it is worth watching what happens with the model based engineering digital twinning as guy has been covering a lot of, to me, we are going to need to see some benchmarks, but they're going to emerge at some point. We're Boeing says, look, we've made enough progress internally. We think we've skipped a generation when it comes to the engineering requirements, or what it takes to.

Why Is America Getting Mixed Up in Foreign Wars When We Have a Mess at Home?

"Angela Cote via wrote the book literally called the ruling class. He was also probably one of the wisest foreign policy experts ever. And for those of you listening that want to get a really good understanding of how we should approach American foreign policy, Angela Kota villa was one of the most prudent. One of the most fair and pro American thinkers. And challenge the CIA and the security apparatus unfortunately, he died tragically. I was supposed to spend time with him, actually, he was unable to make it because he got COVID and he died of something else. It was awful. But he had this, the reason I bring up Angela Kota villa and Michael Anton, who's with hillsdale college. That's a great actual reminder that I have to tell you about hillsdale, the wonderful hillsdale college Beacon of the north, Michael Anton, who is not, doesn't necessarily agree with everything that Angela coded via says, but is, in some ways, disciple, I don't want to speak for him, but he would say this better than I could, which is you should not get involved in foreign conflicts if you have extensive domestic problems at home. What are you doing saber rattling across the world? Trying to resolve border disputes when our when our own border is wide open, we have inflation, the country is politically divided and you have a regime that is wildly unpopular. Well, that is exactly what the security apparatus is doing. Partly to distract away from the failed regime of Biden, but also to try and feed the fire of the military industrial complex because look, if you're the military industrial complex, you're looking at Pfizer AstraZeneca Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin Northrop Grumman Boeing, they say, hey, come on, cut us in for some of this. We got no wars going on right now. Front page of the New York Times, on Ukrainian front, warily awaiting the worst. After 8 years of war, grim anticipation of Russian invasion. So now we are being fed a nonstop line that we should care about the Russian Ukrainian border

"So what's been happening over the last year is that the FAA is really leaning hard into that and saying, you've got to show us Boeing that your analysis is spot on that what you say may happen with the airplanes and service, most of them probably fixed and routine maintenance checks again the guy says are much more much further apart than meta airplanes. You've got to show us that all that is accurate before we sign off on your plans. The focus for the last year has been getting airplanes delivered. Boeing hasn't been able to satisfy FAA's requests on show us what you're telling us as accurate show us where you're getting the data and validate it. And so Boeing is working on that, but also they've gone back to airframe by airframe checks on the issues they understand like the shimmy in the rear fuselage. We're about out of time, but guy you look like you're chomping at the bit to add something to that. Too many. No, I mean, I think it's fair to say that the Boeing's relationship with the FAA has completely had to be rewritten because of what's obviously happened with the max. I mean, look at the 777 X, for example, the hoops that buying is going through to get TI type inspection authorization, which, you know, but I think we're getting there. And I think at the Dubai air show which we were recently Boeing was for the first time really since this all kind of went down, beginning to talk quite openly, really bad. It's better improving relationship with the FAA. And the fact that, for example, ground certification testing for the triple 7 X has quietly begun. You know, so you're beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel there. And I think, you know, to Sean's point, you know, this is a, it's a sort of a work in progress. And we're going to see a lot more changes really next year is going to be crucial for all of this, I think. Just don't ask us when they're going to start delivering 7 8 7s again. Because nobody with any intelligence is going to answer that question intelligently. Okay, well on that note I am sure that Sean you and guy will be continuing to.

"And the point about that is that it's not like airplanes going to fall apart in the sky. You're not talking about a catastrophic failure. What you are talking about is a shortened structural life. And that means that's also important because it's a vital part of Boeing's economic model for the 7 87 that you're talking about an airframe theoretically can go three times longer than an aluminum airframe. So it was a vital part of their model going into the whole program that you had to have that life. And that life had to be substantiated in tests. And of course, it was. So but each individual airframe, as it rolls through the line, if it's compromised in any way by these issues, then the Sean said, you've got to go back and start looking at the analysis and figure out how badly affected it is. So that's why it's important. And just the last point, I should say, in terms of the wrinkled skin side of things, so it's the issue with composites is because you're talking about lots of plies of different material all put together in a sandwich essentially. If you can't see inside that sandwich, you really can't tell whether there's wrinkles or not. So this is another part of the complication of composites. Visual inspection is not an easy thing to do. And part of Boeing's problem right now is to evaluate a non destructive testing process that will enable people around the world with 7 87s already in service just to go and inspect something that's almost invisible to the eye and do it in a way that's not going to mean taking the whole airframe apart essentially. So it's a very quickly wrinkled ply or this waviness in composite laminates can reduce static strength by 10% in some cases or up to 25% in more extreme cases. And crucially, fatigue life, there's also reduced by a factor of ten, at least ten. So those are pretty important numbers to bear in mind..

"And the reason was that they hadn't put the secondary support structure in to the section before it was being put together with the rest of the fuselage and its sagged essentially under its own weight. And this is the sort of thing it was a principle basic lesson that it was learned for the first time. And of course, that's just a sort of an example of how things which in aluminum airplane which people had been used to dealing with 7 generations at 7 7 decades or something. Took for granted. So the other thing about it is, of course, as again, as shown on it too, you're dealing with a vast huge network of suppliers, all responsible for large chunks of airframe that are coming together from all over the world and you're doing it in huge numbers too as well. Remember the 7 8 was the first widebody to look towards production at the rate of 14 a month. So that target was well on the way. So you talked about huge numbers as well and the chances of misalignment or going out of spark out of tolerance are statistically you're going to start seeing that more because you simply talking about more product coming through. So I think looking back at it, it's not surprising that across the span of aviation history that in 2021, the company still making or making the first widebody composite should be suffering some sort of teething issues. I'm not saying it's an excuse. I'm just saying that it's not maybe surprising. The other thing is that if you look at the way Boeing chose to do the 7 87 as opposed to say Airbus on the three 50, which is the nearest comparable program. The fuselage structure Airbus decided because it really wasn't sure about the use of single barrel composites in that large scale. It elected to design the three 50 using a sort of segmented fuselage panel approach. Now, Boeing's approach is you could say more challenging because of that. So that might be another area where you're seeing still issues with tolerances. Guy I mentioned that at 737 max at the beginning, but I think it's important to reiterate. This is a completely different issue, right? The 7 8 7 is not grounded. Nobody is saying it's unsafe to fly in a 7 8 7, right? Right. Yeah, that's true. And again, Sean did mention that there were some limited safety concerns when you had the combination of out of tolerances and shimming issues on the same air frames. But the vast majority don't have both of these issues. So and just very quickly, I think we should talk about why it's important from a safety perspective that you get these shims dead on and you get smooth skins. So let's talk about that. The main reason I think is that you have to remember that composites are so composite structures are very stiff. When you put them together, they're not like your good old aluminum aeroplane, which sort of bounces around is very flexible. And because of that, it means that when you put composite sections together as a complete airframe, you have to make sure that the load that transfers between those sections is absolutely smoothly transferred. So if you don't, you get these little stress buildups. And that's where those importance of shims is vital because you don't want any wrinkled skin surfaces or shims that are improperly connected because that interrupts that transfer of loads across those sections..

"And then maybe some other Boeing procedures that we're emphasizing, deliveries over making sure that airplanes pass the white glove test in the go go days leading into the pandemic. So Sean, I want to go to a guy, but sum up for our readers who are more laymen on the 7 8 7, what you talked about, what are the issues holding of it's a shims, there's doors, there's several issues, right? Yeah, so there's shimming, I think shimming is the big one and shipping certainly the most prevalent one. And that simply filling gaps that are very common. They're common in metal airplanes before they're certainly common in composites now. When you put two big pieces of airplane structure together, both the fit of the part of those two pieces. And then what happens when you fasten them together? You're going to get microscopic gaps and you always have. In the olden days, you measured the gaps with a tool. You figured out what the gap was a shim or a piece of material was fitted to fill that gap and it was stuffed in there. Well, the production processes have advanced a little bit and become automated. But in the case of the 7 8 7, that automated process is not, in some cases, in one case that Boeing cited, we're talking about the horizontal horizontal stabilizer. They had a shimmy issue that was revealed in one of their Utah plants. It was the software wasn't set right for a subset. But there have been a series of these. Again, over the entire production lifetime of the 7 8 7, where they just haven't been able to get the shimming right. Where it becomes an issue is if it's in a place where it's combined with another problem and you asked about the other problems that skin smooth the smoothness and guy wrote a brilliant story about this earlier this year. So I'll let him let him talk about the challenge of composites here in a minute. But getting the composite, those layers of composites completely smooth in multiple pieces. So when you make them together, you have a nice smooth line going across those safe fuselage barrel sections. If that's not right, and then the shimming between those two sections isn't right. You may have an issue that rises through the level of a safety of flight issue. Boeing had that issue on 8 airplanes, they found last year. Those are the only 8 airplanes they flagged as having safety of flight issues with any of these. So shimming is an issue. The skin smoothness is. Now the shimming is all over the airplane. Skin smoothness is an issue. A more recent issue, a non conforming titanium parts that came out of a supplier to Leonardo, which is a Boeing supplier. That one is probably the newest one that has come to light. That's 7 8 7 program specific. But Boeing says they have a very they have a very tight grasp on that issue because they know exactly which parts are affected..

"We're talking a half way out of tolerance. And that started a process where they had to look at every airplane that they had waiting to go out and the more they looked at the more out of tolerances they found. The problem that they now have and have had for over a year with the exception that brief restart and deliveries is trying to come up with a reliable and sustainable process for identifying what the issues are on the airplanes. And then reworking them and getting them out the door. But getting that process approved has been the big hold up. The difference some of these issues that they've seen are certainly significant compared to ones that predate 2019. Another big difference that we're dealing with now is the FAA is they're asking for a lot more homework to put it simply. When Boeing comes up with a way that it analyzes its production records and samples parts of airplanes that are out there to try to determine what some of the production issues are, the FAA wants assurances that what Boeing is telling them is accurate. Boeing and the FAA haven't agreed on that at least for some of these issues. So most recently, and I think the biggest news over the last say a couple of months is that Boeing has now gone with one of these issues shimming in the aft body area. They have now going into every piece of sub assembly. They are looking to see if the shipping is within design tolerances or not. And if it's not, they're doing rework. That on every on every piece. And they're doing it in position in South Carolina before those sub assemblies go to the final assembly line. So that change that addition of manual effort to validate each and every piece of sub assembly heading to the final assembly line is what has caused the production rate to fall now below two per month. That two per month was already reduced from 5 per month, which is where the 7 8 7 was set heading into 2021 as part of the consolidation in South Carolina and then of course the reduction to meet newly revised pandemic outlook. So that's a lot to unpack there. I think the main takeaway is, though, that while the set of problems, it may be a new list, these aren't necessarily new issues. And what I think Boeing in the industry is trying to understand is how much of this relates to the challenge of building a largely composite airframe and how much of it relates to Boeing specific processes, including having multiple suppliers creating big on large chunks of risk by making big parts of the airplane..

"United form the aviate program. I highly recommend anybody that wants to pursue united. Look up the aviate program online and it offers a number of different pathways for somebody to come to united, not only from like a university, but from a number of different avenues. I'm actually a coach in the aviate program. They have line pilots that volunteer to help people pursuing the program get through. I actually get assigned a couple pilots right now. I'm working with 5 pilots in our express system who have been hired into aviate and are making their pathway to being a line pilot at United. They're just building their hours and when they get their hours, they make a transition to united. What kinds of things do they want to know? I mean, do they ask a lot of questions or the people that are your mentees in the aviate program? Well, we cover a lot of things. You know, in my opinion, we work to provide comfort level so that when that person is ready to come the united they know a lot about the company, they know a lot about our CRM program. They know a lot about our training and just the everyday life of a united pilot and the culture of the company that's what we really emphasize when we coach and mentor some of the people in the aviate program as they're making their way. And it all depends too on where they're at, you know, the entry level is like as a CFI and then working for the express carriers and then there's college students that get hired into aviate that are in a college aviation program. It already how about your activities with the EA? You participate with a local chapter. I understand. Yes. Yeah, for everybody out there, I think most people in aviation know what is the experimental aircraft association its organization based up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and they most people know EA through the big air show that goes on up in Oshkosh. But. Comprised of a network of chapters that are around the country and around the world at various community airports, the chapter network allows people to get involved in aviation at a very grassroots level. And I serve as the president of EA chapter 9 32 at galt airport. It's a small airport in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. And the chapter basically caters to people who are enthusiasts looking to get involved in aviation and then we have pilots, airline pilots, military pilots, corporate pilots, flight instructors, people of all walks of aviation that are involved in our community of aviation and it brings grassroots aviation down to like a community level. And you don't have to be a pilot to belong to the EAE. Not at all, not at all, you know, you can be an enthusiast, and get involved. And we have in my chapter, I've got 75 approximately 75 members. Many of them are not pilots. They want to be pilots, or some are like, hey, I like airplanes, and I like aviation, but I'm not going to be flight training for whatever reason, but I just like being around the airport. I like hanging out and getting involved in supporting whatever it is we happen to be doing with the chapter, whether it's a young eagles rally or a community aviation event or something of that nature. Before we run out of time, because I can see max's eyes are moving to the clock, I have one question. When we climb aboard a United airplane to be a just an average person in the back seat, would it be a good thing to say hello to the captain and say if you need anything along the way, just calming I'll be in 17 B and I'm just wondering, you know, in case, because I always think that if my opportunity ever comes up, I'm going to be in the last row on a 7 8 7 and they're going to be 11 people ahead of me that have already volunteered to help. And I just want to figure out how we can push them out of the way. You just want to be the guys that saves the day. When the corporate communications people listen to this, they're going to go, okay, let's see how Arnie answers this one. I'm not sure if I'm going to touch it with a tent. That would be fair. Although, you know, quite often pre departure will get people who are pilots, they have private pilot or commercial pilot or flight instructor. Somebody involved in aviation will come up to the cockpit and they'll say, yeah, hey, I fly assess no one 72. Cool, come on in. Check this out, you know? Sit down and take a look and, you know, we give the ten cent tour. And you never know, you know? It's having a pilot in the back of the airplane. I can't recall any situation personally somebody has had to save the day, but anybody, you know, with eyes and ears and aviation can certainly be a contributor to the crew if they had to for some apparent reason. Max or I could do that. We'd be absolutely ready. So I was thinking that people who beat top on your list might be other pilots on board who were deadheading for the company. Absolutely, yeah. You know, that's a really good point because when I dead had I make it a point to stop as I'm coming in the door and knocking flight attendant, the Purcell said, hey, do you mind if I say hi to the folks up front here? Hey, I'm Arnie I'm sitting back in two a, I'm a Airbus at the time, maybe an Airbus captain or 7 8 captain. If you need me, I'm back here because on a serious note, it's nice to know that you have crew members riding along that could be able bodied if you need them. And there have been situations where that's absolutely happened. I remember when the girl thinking of that one Susan city and Denny Fitch yeah, yeah. Absolutely. And I can't use another brain when there's an emergency. It's called resource management, you know, using all.

"Aircraft. Hello, max. I hope you can hear me from my mobile studio aboard the ark, where floating here in Northern California. And I can almost see it can almost see Nevada from here. Unfortunately, you're sending all that weather to the east coast. So we're bracing for that. Somewhere in the middle of the country is rob Mark. He's a contributing editor to business and commercial aviation, which is a part of the aviation week group, and he's also publisher at jet wine dot com. Hey, good evening to everybody. And I can tell you guys that we started to see some rain, maybe about ten o'clock in the morning yesterday. And it did not quit until maybe 8 o'clock this morning. So we were inundated and the only thing that really matters is my basement was absolutely dry. Oh, good, good. It's soggy everywhere. Well, let's introduce our guest for this episode. That's Arne quest. He is a new Boeing 7 8 7 captain for United Airlines, based at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. He's been a pilot for 31 years at United. He's flown as a crew member and just about every aircraft type united has in their fleet. Arnie began learning to fly at a young age. When he was 15 years old, learned that a central New Jersey airport and he earned his private pilot license at 17 after a high school. He attended embry riddle aeronautical university, he earned the rest of his pilot ratings, as well as a bachelor's degree in aeronautical science. Now, during his senior year, at embry riddle, Ernie worked for a United Airlines as a flight operations intern. And that internship helped him get hired as a united pilot at age 23 and launched his career as an airline pilot. So Ernie, welcome to the airplane geeks, podcast. Good evening max, it's great to be here. I just hope this isn't a disappointment at some point, because if it is, it's max's fault. No. It turns out rob Mark has a long time or an old connection to Arne, which is partly how we're able to get Arnie on the show. And we're going to jump right in with Arnie. And I'd like to start with the Dreamliner because, well, it's a cool aircraft. The Arnie the 7 8 7 is supposed to be the airliner that was designed with the passenger in mind. It's got the windows. It's got the lighting, the lower altitude cabin pressure. So what do you think? Our passengers responding favorably to the 7 8 7? It's definitely a very comfortable airplane, the cabin, like you said, maxes out at a cabin altitude of about 6000 feet. Versus all the other airliners around 8000 feet plus it's humidified and it's extremely quiet. It's very quiet cabin and then when the wind windows are dim down, it makes for a very comfortable atmosphere where people want to sleep or rest. It makes it very non fatiguing to fly. So when you started flying this machine Arnie, did anybody ever tell you just how far up the wingtips would bend in first place? Yeah. They didn't tell me exactly but boy when you look out the windows, and I can't put an exact figure on how far they bend up. But when the airplanes heavy, it's quite noticeable. I'd have to look up the exact amount that they do flex, but they are definitely out there and they move quite a bit. That's the thing I remember the first time I flew. I was right near an over wing seat and I said, with the wingtips, up at the wingtips are above the top of the cabin. It looked like it was that high. I think the number is around 16 feet or something like that. He thinks the magic number that I've heard, but it's a very long, narrow, efficient wing and yeah, it's very noticeable. Well, I haven't flown in the 7 8 7 yet. And that's something I really like to correct. As soon as I can because I want to experience that, but what kinds of roots are you flying or will you be flying, Ernie? Well, I've only been on the airplane since the beginning of September. I got my type rating August 23rd. And out of Chicago, where I'm based, we fly the aircraft just about everywhere around the world. Most of the regular European destinations, such as London, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, and Brussels are common. Over to Asia, normally, when we're outside a COVID, we go to Shanghai and Beijing. We go to both the Tokyo airports, haneda and narita airports, and go down the South America, literally, the best way to say it, I can name all the cities. It's global reach and off the east coast from Newark. During my Iowa I did a nonstop from Newark to Johannesburg, South Africa, which is about a 7500 nautical mile leg and takes approximately 15 hours to get down there. It's deployed to quite a few destinations around the world. Quite capable with its range. Iowa, it stands for initial operating experience, Iowa. And basically, the training process starts out going through a program out in Denver at the United flight training center. It's a 23 day footprint where you go through ground school, simulator training, fixed space training, and then upon completion of your type rating, you transition out of the training center to the actual aircraft in a revenue flight with passengers in the back. And you're under the supervision of a pilot that is known as a line check airmen or LCA. And.

"All the spelling are deeply sorry for the loss of life in the ethiopians airlines flight. Three oh two and line air flight. Six ten accidents boeing ceo. Dennis muhlenberg latched onto findings that inexperience and lack of training. Were part of a chain of events that led to the crashes. It was a controversial position. Understand that these airplanes are flown in the hands of pilots and in some cases are system. Safety analysis includes not only the engineering design but also the actions that pilots would take As as part of a failure. Scenario that boeing's contention from the beginning was that even though the pilots did not know that existed that they did not need to know that and in some cases those procedures were not completely followed. So boeing believed that the pilots should have been able to realize that it was very similar to a runaway stabiliser situation. Runaway stabiliser is an aviation term for a malfunctioning stabiliser. After the lion aircrash boeing had issued a directive to pilots to be aware of this possibility and told them what to do. Or if it happened. Put natalie kickoff when that part of the tail was not acting the way that it should be you take manual control of it. The pilots could have stopped roller coaster. Ride by turning these two switches off reporter jack necas to shut off power to the stabiliser started for moving on its own and then you start cranking a wheel in the cockpit that literally will manually move the stabiliser back to where you want it to move. The issue was were there things happening inside the cockpit. That might have made that harder to do. That's what we were asking reporter. David jealous when we finally got the preliminary black box data from the ethiopian crash. We call it a dennis asure on american airlines seven thirty seven pilot and send him the data and we read through it together. My mission was to provide them. I'm in the cockpit. I see what's happening now so we walked through each line and i had no idea what was in it. I knew that the crew had an experienced captain and a lesser experienced. First officer we go second-by-second through the few minutes of this fight going through the steps that the pilots had taken. And saying yep. I would have done that. I would have done that soon as they lift off the ground. All these different alerts started popping up. The airspeed was unreliable. The altitude was showing unreliable. There were alerts related to that. But they bring the gear up and they continue to climb out two minutes into the flight based on faulty data from the aoa censor 'em kaz kicked him began pushing the nose down and i have very clear memory of noting a time mark were the first officer is quoted as saying stabbed trim cutout switches which takes the weapon away from them. Which is what. Boeing told us to do that. I have to confess. Probably swore. I said the kid got it right. Got it right. What had happened was the pilots did do what they were supposed to do. They had cut the 'electricity off thing. They hit these switches and they tried to take manual control. The first officer is reaching to this large wheel on his left. And that's the manual trim wheel and trying to turn it. It's like lifting up a ten ton bucket of cement out of a deep well. Problem was at that point. The plane was going so fast that even after they took manual control they could not physically get the plane to right itself. They shouldn't have been going that fast terrain and they're continuing to accelerate towards the ground. The ground is approaching them then with no apparent recourse. The pilots reached for the stabilisers switches. I'm yelling into the cockpit. Do that and i don't know what they're facing. Cash was reactivated. 'em says hey i'm back on here. We go and now the airplane is in your full nose down trim and you can pull back forever and there's not enough. We meddle in the back of the airplane to make that airplane come up to a terrain terrain. Oh oh mother of crash. Victim nadia miller on. She died when she was twenty four. It's unbearable but she's not with us. And the only thing i can do is try to prevent this for other people about four months after the ethiopian airlines crash. Family of siamese to mow was about to receive news. They would find bewilder here eating dinner. And i hadn't looked at my phone for a long time and it was blowing up. Senator susan collins. We are joined today by ally. Jeremy the associate administrator for aviation safety german golan ranking member. There were families from kenya from ethiopia from all over saying who is this ali. Bajrami continue to validate boeing's suffer modification to the m. cast in the faa's ali bahrami had been called before congress where he was questioned about revelations the faa had known there was a risk of another max crashing after lionair if the agency's own analysis found 'em cass to be an unacceptable risk. Why did the faa not take immediate action to address those risks. The families hadn't known napa before they didn't know that the safety agency ambled with passenger lives. We knew that eventual solution would be to have the modification and based on our risk assessment. We felt that this has sufficient time to be able to do vacation In you know and and get the final fix after the lion air crash the faa had conducted analysis of the likelihood of another seven. Thirty seven max crashing. The worst case scenario was grim transportation. Committee investigator pasternack. They looked at the probability that there could be another crash of a seven thirty seven. Max if the fa didn't do anything to 'em cass and just let the plane keep flying and what bet assessment showed was fa predicted. There could potentially be fifteen more fatal accidents of seven thirty seven. Max aircraft over the life span of the fleet about one crash every other year.

"When boeing engineers expanded the caste system they included a feature that would make it particularly dangerous. Planes have millions of parts in them. And there's one little one on the seven thirty seven that sticks out the fuselage that little black circle there that has called the angle attack sensor on the seven thirty-seven seven max. It had the power to trigger 'em cash reporter teams glance miss the center that is one of the crucial parameters to the computer to tell the plane that in a perilous condition. Jack necas dangled attack sensor would activate emphasis by telling the system that the plane's nose was too high. And then m cast. We try to push the nose down david jealous. But if this sensor is broken for whatever reason them cass never realizes and so it keeps pushing the nose. The plane down over and over again. Congressional investigators would later find documents. Showing that boeing engineers had raised this very concerned. Doug pasternak an engineer as what if we have a faulty sensor because a oa sensors are known to be faulty. You know what happens to the airplane. So you have those concerns raised. When the response is again from boeing engineers was to essentially dismiss those move. Boeing began delivering the new seven. Thirty seven max. In mid twenty-seven at outset seven. Thirty seven max. Arguably one of boeing's biggest successes it had become its bestselling jet evert advanced. Sales were estimated at three hundred. Seventy billion dollars. American had orders for one hundred. Southwest airlines for two hundred boeing had focused especially hard on selling developing markets in asia. Where lion air's parent company became the first customer to fly the seven thirty seven mouths signing an agreement worth more than twenty billion dollars airlines loved. It there was a years long waiting list. To get one but boeing signature. New jet had a fatal flaw breaking news. These search for wreckage is underway after a passenger jet with one hundred eighty. Nine people on board crashed a lion air flowing. Seventy thirty seven. Nearly brand new boeing seven investigators from the us national transportation safety board contributed to an analysis of what led to the lion. Air crash dana schultz. Ntsb leading up to the lion. Air accident the angle of attack. Probe it self was miscalculated. The maintenance crew was not able to properly identify this miscalculation but angled overtax censor sent bad data to 'em cast. The plane thought. It was a stall because of bad information as a consequence of this angle of attack. Data air the end cass activated. When it really shouldn't have david callous. Five months later almost the exact same thing happens halfway across the world. New seven thirty-seven max. Eight jetliner crashed today. Best gators say that flight had similar problems to the line aircrash. Once again the angle of attack sensor is malfunctioning but there is this question now about systems within the m hadn't been on those planes. Those planes wouldn't have crashed. It's that simple. All mourns one hundred sixty seven people killed in the sandy crash. Relative.

"A short time after this. First maiden flight ed wilson he and his co-pilot start to realize that the seven thirty seven max is not handling smoothly as it should in certain low-speed situations it shortly after takeoff. It's still kinda climbing to ascend. It's not going full. Speed growing engineers had an idea for how to deal with this. They know about him. And they know that case was actually used for a similar situation and these high speed maneuvers. And so theoretically m cass could also be used in these other situations to also smooth out the head crucially. It's already been created. It's already been approved and it's something that we just apply to a different phase flight. It's actually a pretty easy. Fix this ends up being an extremely fateful decision. They enable the stabiliser to move much more actually four times as much now. The systems designed for low speed situations like just after takeoff and after off is when the plane is still only a few thousand feet over the ground that means you have much less room for error tap winning in automated fashion and repeated fashion this fundamentally changes m s it makes it much more aggressive much more risky. It's a far more dangerous system. Boeing was doubling down on the system expanding it despite the earlier catastrophic result in a simulator touched the times reporting. On 'em focused on a former boeing pilot. I started to hear about a pilot at boeing. Whose name was mark faulkner. He came up through the air force academy he flew for alaska airlines and he became the chief technical pilot for the seven thirty seven. He played a definitive role in making sure that there was minimal pilot training on the max host transportation committee investigator doug pasternak boeing released to our committee instant messages and emails from more four cnor and some of his colleagues in one of these emails that more fortner sent out he says i want to stress importance of holding firm that there will not be any type of simulator training required to transition to max. And he said quote. Boeing won't allow back to happen reporter. David gallus he was this key liaison between the company and the faa. He was the person who personally emailed the faa asking for 'em to removed from the pilot menu. That was an important piece of this. Because we understood that the faa really didn't know that cass became more powerful. He was speaking absolutely on behalf of the company. This is not some low level employee and he was asking for something that was really quite substantial that a new piece of software that made the plane behave in ways that a previously hadn't be concealed from the pilots. This is where the commercial pressures from the executive level. Come right down to the development of the airplane. Mark fork nurse certainly was not alone actor and what he did aid. He was following. Through a policy by boeing to ensure that the program did not have to put pilot's in flight simulator. It got to the point where mark faulkner got an award for keeping training on the seven. Thirty seven max to a minimum nearly eight months after requesting that m. caspi removed from pilot training manuals. Faulkner texted a colleague with a shocking realization. This appears to be the moment where mark faulkner learns that em case has been expanded. He writes in that message. I basically lied to the regulators unknowingly. But he never went back and corrected the record. He never went back and fixed the error mark fork. Cnor wouldn't speak to us but his lawyer told the times reporters that his communications with the faa were honest on that.

"Families gathered at the crash site across the world reporters at the new york times. Were investigating what had been going wrong with. Boeing's new commercial jet natalie trough statistically speaking the likelihood that these two accidents were not in some way connected was extremely low. It's suggested that there was something going on with the plane. And obviously we were determined to find out a reporter david palace. It was clear from the gecko v. Boeing was in full crisis mode. Ceo dennis muhlenberg as the fax from the accident become available and we understand the necessary next steps. We're taking action to fully reassure airlines and their passengers of the safety of the seven thirty-seven max. This was going to be an existential crisis. For the company of these two events were related china grounds. the plane i other international regulators. Ground the plane. Then the european union grounds the plane but in the us the faa since its grounding the glowing and the faa all. Were saying that they were sort of waiting for the facts before they rush to judgement and grounded such an important new play but for months times was reporting. There was something wrong with seven thirty-seven max itself. The software system. That pilots had not known existed. The maneuvering characteristics augmentation system or cass reporter. James glance the function of this previously undisclosed system was to save the plane. When it believed that the plane might go into stock and fall out of the sky and so this system was designed to sort of take over the stabiliser and push that knows back down in case the pilot gets in trouble then. A major setback for the company radar showed the two planes flight patterns. Were eerily similar days after the rest of the world had reached the same conclusion. They finally grounded the plane for the new york times reporters. All signs pointed to 'em gas. We knew that was the beginning. We knew that we needed to start with the system. This was a really problematic software system. In the way it was designed reporter. Jack necas okay. Well then how the hell did it end up. In the plane this way boeing declined to be interviewed for this film in a statement. The company said safety is its top priority and it has worked closely with regulators investigators and stakeholders to implement changes that ensure accidents. Like these never happen again. A reporter david gallus. This story really begins in two thousand eleven. The two thousand eleven paris airshow officially opened monday in an airbus going head to head for at least a decade but air airbus had been quickly catching up and really nipping at boeing's heels. It's the best air show ever forever's in terms of aircraft numbers sort in two thousand ten airbus introduced the a three twenty neo more fuel-efficient version of its stalwart. A three hundred twenty. Three twenty is the direct competitor to boeing seven. Thirty-seven aviation consultant. Scott hamilton airline wanted an airplane. That was more fuel-efficient then the airplanes then service airbus chose to reinvention the eighth three twenty and to what they called the neo. The new engine option. It's a record. Two hundred for its a three. Twenty neo was one of the fastest selling programs of aviation history and placed enormous pressure on boeing to respond about forty percent of the profits. Or the entire boeing company came from the seven thirty seven. The seven thirty seven was the best selling commercial airplane of all time thousand seven thirty seven aircraft is going to roll off the assembly. More than ten thousand of these airplanes have been used by hundreds of airlines. All over the globe would always amazed me is that the seven 737 was first introduced when the beatles were still together right january seventeenth nineteen sixty seven reporter. Jack necas flight. Attendants chris the first boeing seven thirty by smashing champagne bottles over the which scott hamilton it was designed to be very low to the ground now by the one thousand nine hundred eighty slowing had to upgrade the seven thirty seven and they created what was called seven thirty seven classic which had a new engine. On brand new boeing seven thirty seven five hundred in the nineteen nineties. You hit the some thirty seven next generation which had a new wing on it and some slow stretches reported gallus and so here. We are in two thousand eleven. But the paris air show. With the three twenty neo and boeing. Frankly was caught flat. Put within a couple of weeks. Airbus an american airlines have the preliminary workings of what would become the first deal for american by airbus planes in more than a decade gerard. Arpey the ceo of american airlines calls. Jim mcnerney the ceo of boeing since a courtesy call at this point just letting their longtime supplier of airplanes. No they're going to go with the competition reporter natalie And that is essentially dagger. In the heart of boeing and within forty eight hours boyne ahead decided to pull the trigger on launching the re-engine seven thirty seven which later became branded as the max from the very beginning from its birth. It was marked by competitive pressure aviation consultant scott hamilton. You need to understand what was going on with boyne at the time that the macs program was launched boyne was billions of dollars over budget on seven eighty seven program at seven seven dash eight program. Airlines are thoroughly. Ticked off at boeing over the delays and boeing was looking at the max to restore its own credibility within days of the second seven. Thirty seven max crash. Another investigation is underway in washington dc. We started getting information in from whistleblowers from people both current and former. Faa and boeing employees. Doug pasternak was leading a congressional investigation. This is the first time is speaking publicly about what he found. As soon as the second accident occurred we started our investigation and or focus was on the designed development and certification of the max. We got hundreds of thousands of pages of documents from boeing. One of the things that really struck me from speaking. To a lot of boeing employees was that they were so excited. To go to work at boeing boeing is a tremendous engineering company and technical herbal but almost without failure they point to a degradation of that mindset and that safety suffered as a result.

"Jakarta indonesia october twenty eighteen aviation analyst jerry socia- von on the morning of the on the line. I was woken up by a colleague who alerted me. That align aircraft crashed is that it's the max and i was surprised because he was a new aircraft by company provided the air data for aircraft flying around jakarta area so i went to the computer looked at a date that he was immediately apparent. That is was wrong. The plane went up to about two thousand feet just over a minute after takeoff and the plane had a bit of a dive and then the plane climbed to about five thousand feet. But then i five thousand feet. Claims fluctuating up and down. They started diving it. It just didn't make sense. You don't see planes diving on departure. I was baffled. Why did it go. Now light stacy's six ten when missing from radar. One hundred eighty nine people were killed in the crash of lion air flight. Six ten the boeing seven. Three seven max. As the plane was a new boeing seven thirty-seven marks. What do we know about this. 737 max. Eight sherline jeddah boeing history. Just introduced the year before.

Probably the fastest way to kill yourself in. An airplane is to have the stabiliser malfunction in city new york times reporter. James plans by spine literally tangled. When i saw the traces from the black box the plane continually tried to push the nose down and the highlights were trying over and over again to stop the plane and in the end they lose that battle what boeing had not told airlines or their pilots was that it had put a powerful software system on the new airplane in the lion hair crash. This system was receiving incorrect information. And that made a plane dive straight downward and destroy itself inside boeing. They quickly diagnosed the problem and began working on a fix but they stood by. The max has hundreds of them took to the air around the world carrying thousands of passengers.
