Depends on the cause, more of the same?
Its a 737-500, doubt people will be able to blame MCAS for it. Will need to wait for the NTSB to investigate and draw a conclusion as to what the cause of the accident is. Airlines are unlikely to park all 737's because there was an accident that happened and no one knows the reason of the accident yet. Could be one of many things that happened. Can happen to any plane easily regardless of who the manufacturer is

Agreed. But nerves are high and the industry in trouble, and who knows what modifications it may have suffered.

Yeah. Because it doesn't have MCAS.

Tin Foil Hat On: Some disgruntled pilot lost a loved one to the max, and is now salty that the max is flying again and Boeing shares are recovering, and his loved one isn't.

This has hardly made front page news in most publications.

Sky News, BBC, CNN, News24, eNCA, NY Times, etc. all would rather publish useless BS about Covid and the US election, than a horrific incident which should be making international headlines! :oops:

Just like our media. Politics rules.

I can't begin to think what goes through the minds of the families of passengers when they are told a plane has crashed and everyone on board was killed in the accident
This incident a little bit kinder as there's no agonising long wait for confirmation.

No comms from the cockpit, and such a fast descent... RUD?

I didn't say they weren't publishing it, I was referencing the fact that it's not headline news. Only now has the BBC made it their headline, earlier it was the Queen and vaccination BS.

The BBC (and major news outlets) are always cautious to announce breaking stories that have unverified outcomes. Please don't read ulterior motives into slight delays.
