TRAIN DOOM..........

San Francisco’s BART service completely halted by computer problem 

San Francisco’s public transit service, BART, stopped running overnight, halting all train service.  Bay Area Rapid Transit said Saturday that crews working overnight on BART’s uninterruptible power supply ran into problems that have impacted the power supply system and train control routing system.  Without these systems, a BART statement says, it is unable to safely dispatch its trains for service.  The company also said it has multiple crews working to get both systems back up and running, but for now, bus agencies will be providing free trips for service between stations. BART’s ridership on weekdays averages more than 430,000 and it connects downtown San Francisco with the East Bay region cities of Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont and other communities. The transit system also provides trips to the San Francisco airport for about 4 million people annually.  Some regular BART riders who were trying to get to work Saturday vented their frustration about the outage, suggesting they would need to resort to ride share services such as Uber.

BOEING DOOM! Boeing Statement On 737MAX Disagree Alert.......

Boeing statement: We want to provide a response to several news stories yesterday and today reporting on the disagree alert on the 737 MAX.
Boeing included the disagree alert as a standard feature on the MAX, although this alert has not been considered a safety feature on airplanes and is not necessary for the safe operation of the airplane. Boeing did not intentionally or otherwise deactivate the disagree alert on its MAX airplanes.
The disagree alert was intended to be a standard, stand-alone feature on MAX airplanes. However, the disagree alert was not operable on all airplanes because the feature was not activated as intended.
The disagree alert was tied or linked into the angle of attack indicator, which is an optional feature on the MAX. Unless an airline opted for the angle of attack indicator, the disagree alert was not operable.
On every airplane delivered to our customers, including the MAX, all flight data and information needed to safely operate the aircraft is provided i…
