      The engines are mounted higher and slightly forward for ground clearance, otherwise they would have to increase the landing gear height and retracted positions.
      The engines have a larger diameter than the NG and previous models.
      It's less tedious to position the engines than it is to relocate landing gear bays and components and systems in those areas.

      Why didn't they increase the clearance from the ground with few design changes?

      Vox, maybe you should stay in your lane and leave the explaining to the NTSB.
      They are REAL investigators, not pretend journalists.

    Lot's of misinformation on this video! How about placing the blame where it belongs. The MCAS sensor's were not maintained IAW requirement. How about lack of training before flying this plane.

      The MCAS was probably programmed by "code artisans".

        Thanks for this summary. Great video. This is a perfect example of corporate companies gambling with human lives without sufficient consequences.. this is unexaptable.

          they were 'operating the same plane'? NO, They were operating the same 'kind' of plane!

            It was bad enough that the first plane crashed due to Boeing's rush to build this plane. The fact that they allowed a second plane to crash before taking this seriously, is totally unacceptable and inexcusable!

              Their planes should be shut down... So many people had to pay for their mistakes...

                              Im just wondering , was there possibility to shut down MCAS like switch or something and also were the pilots aware that there is MCAS installed.

                                    Heaps of information missing from this video that was available at the time of upload. The software packages that were distributed on the two planes that crashed were NOT the same as those installed on other airlines. The bottom-line is not as this video lays out. Shameful "reporting".

                                        People love to miss these couple of details. 1 there is a disconnect for that software in the cockpit Incase of instances like this.
                                        2. While yes this is a issue with Boeing it’s also a human error issue as well. They the planes that went down were in 3rd world countries flying for budget airlines and had little experience with this plane... ya get what ya get at that point. 3. People seem to think this plane just came out like a month ago. It hasent. It has flown, landed, took off, god knows how many hours/times. I’m not trying to say Boeing isn’t at fault on this but y’all seem to think they have 100% responsibility for this when that just isn’t the case. 90% of you arnt in the aviation field and really don’t know what your talking about, your just spewing what you think or hear other people say.

                                              Strategically first product in the market will capture the majority of the sales shares. Boeing rushed to come up with a branded product at the cost of quality. Time was crucial especially for front office and execs. No time to have a perfect product as such we have time to time such disasters. FAA seems to be loosen its certification requirements as well and such did not help much

                                                    Why boeing didnt just increase the heigh of the landing gears?

                                                      I used to prefer Boeing, but after this.. I'll go with Airbus. Like come on, safety should ALWAYS be priority.

                                                        The engine move is a bit of a red herring. Most passenger planes have anti stall systems (including the A320) the problem is that MCAS in particular is not fit for purpose.

Juan Brown, a commercial airline pilot explains the changes in detail here.

The French aviation authority also seemed to fail to disclose crucial information about the last moments of the crash.

                                                                                            People can’t handle the truth, more crashes are caused by human pilot error, poor maintenance and airline management, than anything ekse😌

                                                                                              So many problems? 2 planes from 3rd world airlines that didnt understand how to use the system, plus they got cheap and didnt buy the optional warning system.

                                                                                              Want proof? The day before Lion Air crashed, the planes crew experienced an issue with the MCAS system from a defective air speed sensor. However there was a deadheading pilot from another airline with the flight crew on that flight. When the plane experienced issues, the flight crew didnt know how to control it. Thats when the deadheading pilot stepped in and simply turned off the MCAS system and saved the plane.

                                                                                              Unfortunately a new crew took the plane the next day and crashed it. They were not told or trained by their airline how to correct the issue.

                                                                                              Lastly, US carriers like Southwest have not had issues and they have more Max 8s in use than any other carrier.
