You're not Boeing to believe this, but... Another deadly 737 Max control bug found


Re: Ensuring that all code is tested

Not sure I'm a fan of that idea. I'm not sure the programmers are entirely at fault here. I can just see Boeing management announcing to the programmers:

"We've got this massive company balls-up that we need you to sort out! Write a fix for this MCAS thing. You've got 2 days, we're losing money here! Oh, and by the way you'll actually be flying in the live test flights so make sure you do it right. What's that? Overtime? Don't be silly."
