BOEING 737 Max Software OUTSOURCED To $9-An-Hour Engineers...Why Is Shithead Dennis Muilenburg Still The CEO?


737 Max Software OUTSOURCED...didn't see that COMING....LOL!

Boeing MURDERED 346 souls to save some money.....

Boeing's 737 Max Software Outsourced to $9-an-Hour Engineers

(Bloomberg) -- It remains the mystery at the heart of Boeing Co.’s 737 Max crisis: how a company renowned for meticulous design made seemingly basic software mistakes leading to a pair of deadly crashes. Longtime Boeing engineers say the effort was complicated by a push to outsource work to lower-paid contractors. The Max software -- plagued by issues that could keep the planes grounded months longer after U.S. regulators this week revealed a new flaw -- was developed at a time Boeing was laying off experienced engineers and pressing suppliers to cut costs. Increasingly, the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software, often from countries lacking a deep background in aerospace -- notably India. In offices across from Seattle’s Boeing Field, recent college graduates employed by the Indian software developer HCL Technologies Ltd. occupied several rows of desks, said Mark Rabin, a former Boeing software engineer who worked in a flight-test group that supported the Max. The coders from HCL were typically designing to specifications set by Boeing. Still, “it was controversial because it was far less efficient than Boeing engineers just writing the code,” Rabin said. Frequently, he recalled, “it took many rounds going back and forth because the code was not done correctly.” Boeing’s cultivation of Indian companies appeared to pay other dividends. In recent years, it has won several orders for Indian military and commercial aircraft, such as a $22 billion one in January 2017 to supply SpiceJet Ltd. That order included 100 737-Max 8 jets and represented Boeing’s largest order ever from an Indian airline, a coup in a country dominated by Airbus. Source

ANTS ON A PLANE: Ants On Venice-To-Newark United Flight

NEWARK, N.J. (CBS/AP) — A United flight arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport had to be taken out of service after ants from a carry-on bag appeared in part of the cabin. A passenger on the Venice-to-Newark flight Monday described the scenario in a series of tweets and photos. “The guy in front pulls down his case (which btw isn’t zipped shut, as middle aisle guy notes to me in an aside) and ants ants ants spill out, running in every which direction,” Charlotte Burns tweeted.A United spokesman said the plane was sidelined once it reached Newark so it could be cleaned and exterminated. The spokesman said the airline notified airport customs and agriculture personnel. Source

The plane had “multiple flat tires upon landing,” according to the airline. The left landing gear of the Boeing 757 was stuck in a grassy area after Flight 627 from Denver landed at Newark at 1 p.m., the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Flights in and out of the airport were briefly suspended, the airport said, but had resumed with by 3 p.m. Some arriving flights were delayed more than four hours the FAA said. Source

Our Lady of La Salette On The Stars Will Lose Their Regular Motion: Odd Asteroid in Wrong-way Orbit Around Sun Came From Deep Space

The Stars Will Lose Their Regular Motion Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)     Rogue asteroid orbits the WRONG WAY around the sun while routinely dodging Jupiter and 6,000 other space rocks For at least a million years, a lone asteroid has been orbiting the 'wrong' way around the sun, a new study has found.  The cosmic game of chicken incorporates giant planet Jupiter and about 6,000 other asteroids, known as the 'Trojan asteroids', sharing the planet's space.  The asteroid is the only one in the solar system known to have an opposite, or 'retrograde', orbit around the sun while sharing a planet's orbital space.  Almost all of the million-or-so known asteroids in our solar system travel around the sun in the same direction as Earth and the other planets.   Fewer than 100 break this orbital rule, and asteroid 2015 BZ509 - 'BZ' for short - is one of the select few.  BZ moves against the flow of all other asteroids i…
