Re: Alternate 737MAX design kludge

Is it lift? or induced drag acting upwards in front of the centre of gravity? I'm not sure if there's a difference. Either way I can see why the plane pitches up when the underside of the engines start to to hit the airflow ahead of the wings - and everything I know about aerodynamics I learnt from paper planes and youtube. How did this get past Boeing?
