Internal communication at Boeing reveals widespread knowledge of problems with the 737 Max planes design and safety long before it started killing passengers. Senior leadership at the company lied to the public and regulators about the plane while internally staff and management questioned the program.
In 2007, a Boeing employee wrote: “this airplane is designed by clowns, who in turn are supervised by monkeys.”
In one November 2015 message, the 737 chief technical pilot, whose name is redacted in the documents, said failing to get computer-based training for one system “is a planet-killer for the MAX.”
The messages released by Boeing also show employees voicing concerns over deficiencies with a Max simulator. “Would you put your family on a MAX simulator trained aircraft?” one employee wrote in 2018, before adding: “I wouldn’t.”
The criminal culture at Boeing revealed in these internal documents could and probably should cause airlines around the world to question past and future purchases of Boeing planes.
