Eric: Linky to The Onion
There was another article: "CEO admits that the addition of a self-destruct feature may have been a mistake". Within that article it says that if they DO continue to have the feature, they might consider that it operates from a guarded switch. Not the exact words, BUT, Oh, the ironing!

Of course certain individuals there would say that all current airliners have a "self-destruct feature" and that is the people that occupy the cockpit. :roll:

It's really not that surprising. People who always try to do the right thing will still from time to time mess up and do something wrong. Therefore it stands to reason that someone who always tries to do the wrong thing will from time to time mess up and do something right. :mrgreen:

It is not so much that he did or didn't do the right thing. Time will tell.
But what he definitively did NOT do is shoot down the Ukrainian 737.

He shares some responsibility...just like the act of takeoff is a contributing factor for almost all plane crashes...BUT God forbid THEY be anything BUT black and white (Evanie especially- but TeeVee too- You are Guilty or not guilty...court adjourned).

In aviation everything must be redundant.
If software somehow fails to make it crash then there's this hardware backup.

Boeing: Critical 737 Max test flights begin June 29
Excerpt:

The US aviation regulator has started formal test flights for Boeing's troubled 737 Max.

The test flights, which will run through a series of potential emergency scenarios, are expected to take place over several days.

Boeing's best-selling aircraft was grounded last year after two crashes killed all 346 people on the flights.

The tests are a milestone for Boeing, but even if they go well, months of further safety checks will be needed.

Aviation regulators grounded the 737 Max about 15 months ago following two crashes - a Lion Air flight and an Ethiopian Airlines flight - within five months of each other.

The ruling triggered a financial crisis at the 103-year-old company, sparked lawsuits from victims' families, and raised questions about how Boeing and the US regulator, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), conducted their safety approval process.

* * *
The FAA told BBC News that the first certification flight took off from Seattle on Monday. The flight is expected to take several hours.

Test flights had been planned for last year, but investigations uncovered an array of new safety issues that have delayed a return to service.

It could take weeks to analyse data from the test flights. But even if this process is successful, further flying, training of pilots, and clearance from European and Canadian regulators will be needed.

The European Aviation Safety Agency has maintained that clearance by the FAA will not automatically mean a clearance to fly in Europe.

Norwegian Air, TUI, and Icelandair are among airlines using the 737 Max in Europe, while other carriers have the aircraft on order.

Boeing declined to comment.
