Donald Trump says he would fix the 737 Max & # 39; and would describe it differently if a crisis-hit Boeing struggles to develop new software after the tragedy in Ethiopia
Donald Trump claimed that he could repair the distressed Boeing 737 Max and rebrand him to the double air tragedies.
The president said he would add some extra features to the jet model to help the manufacturer hit by the crisis.
Trump took his advice to Boeing in the early morning hours of Twitter on how to bring the 737 Max brand back to life.
All 157 passengers aboard the Ethiopia Airlines flight died last month when the Boeing 737 Max crashed a few minutes after taking off Addis Ababa en route to Nairobi.
In total, 21 staff members of the United Nations and 12 aid workers were killed.
A similar crash involving the same Boeing model plane crashing into Indonesia's waters in October last year hit all 189 on board.
President Donald Trump tweeted his ideas to help Boeing rebrand the troubled 737 Max plane in the early hours of this morning
Airlines and countries around the world have grounded the Boeing 737 Max jets or removed them from their airspace after the crashes.
Donald Trump said this morning that repairing the jet and adding & # 39; some extra great features & # 39; could restart the model before adding & # 39; what do I know? & # 39; at the end.
He wrote Monday morning at 3.49 pm PDT: & # 39; What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I became president!), But if I were Boeing, I would have the Boeing 737 MAX FIX, some great features & REMAND the plane with a new name. No product has suffered like this. But again, what the hell do I know? & # 39;
The jet from Ethiopia Airlines reportedly damaged its attack sensor when taking off a foreign object or bird, experts said last week.
The damaged sensor triggered inaccurate data and caused the pilots to turn off the anti-stall software – known as MCAS – but turned it on again and pushed the jet down.
It is said that the pilots attempted to manually return the nose of the aircraft before restoring power, but they were unable to regain control – which ultimately resulted in the aircraft crashing to the ground.
Boeing vowed to fix the software problems discovered in his 737 Max flight control system with a new patch after the two fatal accidents that led to the worldwide basis of the manufacturer's flagship model.
An initial accident report of the fatal crash last month in Ethiopia revealed that erroneous sensor readings and multiple automatic commands to push the nose of the Boeing aircraft down contributed to the crash, making it difficult for the crew to regain control to get.
Ivanka Trump today honors the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines crash by attending a special ceremony and laying a wreath in the country's capital, Addis Ababa, on her journey through Africa.
