Considering picking up some BA in the current 'dip'?

Incredible read on the situation surrounding the 737 MAX 8 debacle.

Lots of direct input from pilots' experience with Boeing's MCAS system, with heavy criticism of Boeing's poor documentation, training.

Taking from their reports, these pilots quickly killed the computer, and "SAFELY FLEW THE DAMN PLANE TO DESTINATION".

A fifteen minute read; worth the time.
