Ottawa OK's Boeing 737 to fly after another 737 crash

Post by sunsummer »

A week after another Boeing 737 Crashes, Ottawa ok's the 737 to fly again.

On 9 January 2021, the Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737-524 flying the route disappeared from radar four minutes after departure from Soekarno–Hatta International Airport. Officials confirmed that the aircraft crashed in the waters off the Thousand Islands, some 19 nmi (22 mi; 35 km) from the airport. A preliminary investigation speculated that the aircraft's engines were still operating upon impact.

According to AirNav Radarbox flight data, the aircraft reported a rapid drop in altitude during the climb phase from 10,900 ft (3,300 m) to 7,650 ft (2,330 m) at 07:40 UTC.[10] Flightradar24 reported that four minutes after takeoff, the aircraft dropped by 10,000 ft (3,000 m) in less than a minute.[11] The flight tracker also noted that the aircraft's last recorded altitude was 250 feet (76 m) at 07:40:27 UTC.[12] According to provided flight data, the airplane experienced a drop of 1,755 ft (535 m) in just six seconds between 07:40:08 and 07:40:14 UTC. It was followed by a drop of 825 ft (251 m) in two seconds, 2,725 ft (831 m) in four seconds, and 5,150 ft (1,570 m) in its last seven seconds.[13] During the fall, the aircraft rapidly changed speed, decreasing and increasing in seconds.[14

Sounds Familiar, I don't remember the latest crash on Jan 9th making the Canadian Press news. One would have thought that Transport Canada would have delayed the announcement a week after the latest crash.

However Ottawa in it's wisdom has Okayed the 'The Boeing 737 MAX can return to Canadian airspace beginning Wednesday, Transport Canada says, concluding nearly two years of government review after the aircraft was involved in two deadly crashes that saw the planes grounded worldwide.'

Ottawa, nor anyone else has grounded the 737, they grounded the 737 Max which is a specific subtype of the 737. The 737 Max has certain aerodynamic/flight control requirements that differ from the rest of the 737 family due to its design, the fault in the 737 Max that led to the two crashes are not shared with any other 737 type. The Sriwijaya Air crash involved a 737-500 which is completely unrelated to the flaw in the 737 Max.

Currently, there are B737-200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700 and 800s actively flying in Canada and were not grounded as there was no relation to the Max.

As far as your claim that the Sriwijaya Air crash was not on Canadian news, ummm, not sure what news you've been watching or reading, but it was all over the news here.

Also, not sure why this is in the Coronavirus forum.

This is what happens when people who don't understand aviation make comments about aviation.

The plane that just crashed,,,,had nothing to do with the Max's, outside of the number of the plane, it is almost totally different in every shape and form.
The plane is a 26-year-old Boeing 737-500. different engines, electronics, design, almost every part of the plane.
I watched global news the day of, the losers at global talked for 20 seconds about the crash, then over 2 min about the max's.
Why is it so important for the media to appease the minds of the people yet again???

Too bad sunsummer save his first-ever post for a wrong-headed comment. But he might be excused, slightly, for the marketing scam going on that Boeing and so many companies do with a good brand name. There's been Boeing 737-100 up to Boeing 737- 900 I guess, and now Boeing develops the 737-Max. Looks like a 737, but lots is different. Typical of many companies. Mr. Clean is a long-time product. Use the name, call them Mr. Clean magic pads or whatever. Tylenol becomes a household name. Transfer it to dozens of other products, none of which are Tylenol, but everybody knows the name. Hey, maybe Boeing should have called it the Boeing 737-Tylenol.

Seriously, I'm sad for Boeing, a good Pacific N.W. company and one which I understand started in Vancouver in the 1920s. Cut corners and greed will do that every time to a profit-driven board and management. I don't know why these corporations don't learn.

I see I stand corrected by OKayak; there are only Boeing 737-200 to Boeing 737-800. Sorry. The workhorse of the PWA in B.C. and the north through the 1970s and on.

No, no, you were right - there is a -900 series. There aren't any in Canada, but various airlines around the world have ordered them, I think they've sold about 600 of them or so.

The first 737 I was on was a -200 with PWA, many fond memories of PWA. I've been fortunate to fly on every (non BBJ) 737 model from the 200 to the 900 and the MAX 8. Next to the -200, I really dig the MAX.

You're a brave man (flying the Max) I guess. I'd love to be flying somewhere, anywhere, right now, but there's this Covid-19 things . . . .

First time I ever flew commercially was in 1972 (flew everywhere with my Dad prior to that in his Stinson and then Cessna 310). Went Vancouver to Port Hardy with PWA on a DC4; shocked when the return flight (they used to originate in Sandspit) was a 737. Since that's almost 50 years ago, must have been a very low number 737. Lived to tell!
