  1. Why not just make more old reliable model 73 727 s! How dare you mess with the grandfather of all planes to be learned on! We know BD Cooper isn’t going to jack any of them again so what’s the big fucking deal? There’s no reason to change engine size and have to compensate it’s ocunterweiht by positioning it forward! And what do I know anyway, I’m just a dumb civilian and. . . A girl at that! Who made these regarded descisions? I e flown on these since the mid 70 s and the original model is my favourite passenger plane. Why fuck with something that works? Oh, right, you’re or someone is retarded . . .

  2. During  months 
    of  February  – March 
    2019 ,  aviation  sector 
    ,  both  military 
    and  civil  , 
    have  witnessed  mishaps 
    in  the  air.  
    Military   jets  have 
    met  with  accidents 
    and  so  is 
    the  case  with 
    drones.   Aviation  industry 
    through  Boeing  737 
    aircrafts  has  been 
    in  the  news 
    for  worrisome  concerns. 
    Two  major  mishaps 
    in  the  air 
    have  killed  some 
    hundreds.  The  latest 
    such  mishap  in 
    the  air  involving 
    Boeing  737  plane 
    happened  on  10 
    March  2019  when 
    an  Ethiopian  Airlines 
    flight  crashed  killing 
    all  157  persons 
    on  board.  These 
    circumstances  followed  a 
    rethinking  in  the 
    aviation  sector.  Several 
    countries  across  the 
    world  are  reported 
    to  have  grounded 
     more  Boeings. 
    In  this  context 
    ,  it  may 
    be  apt  to 
    refer  readers  to 
    this  Vedic  astrology 
    writer’s  predictive  alerts 
    for  more  care 
    and  appropriate  strategy 
    brought  to  public 
    domain  quite  often 
    since  last  year 
    October  2018 ,  through 
    social  media  plus 
    submission  of  comments 
    to  a  number 
    of  newspapers  across 
    the  world.  In 
    order  that  readers 
    refresh  their  memory 
    ,  the  same 
    is  being  reproduced 
    here  :-

    “The  following 
    alert  for  more 
    care  and  appropriate 
    strategy  in  relation 
    to  aviation  industry 
    was  made  by 
    this  Vedic  astrology 
    writer  over  three 
    months  past  in 
    October  2018 :-

    ‘Astrologically  speaking 
    ,  aviation  industry 
    ,  world-wide  and 
    in  India  as 
    well  ,   could 
    have  focus   for  
    doing  much  to 
    correct  the  systems 
    or  to  innovate 
    with  strategies .  Such 
    aspects  as  skilled 
    work-force  or   improved 
    technology  or  know-how 
    could  also  be 
    in  focus.  Major 
    air  accidents  at 
    vulnerable  locations  due  to   some  
    mechanical  defect  or  
    oversight –  negligence   cannot 
    be  ruled  out.    
    This  scenario  can 
    come  up  during 
    coming   last  two 
    months  of  present 
    year  2018  and 
    during  new  year 
    2019  ,  more 
    so  during  February – March.  So 
    need  is  to 
    be    alert  for 
    more  care  and 
    appropriate  strategy’.

    Note  : 
    Dates  13 to  15 
    February  ,  21 
    to  23  February 
    and  2  to 
    4  March  in 
    2019  ,   11-12 March 
    or  a  day 
    prior  and  after 
    to  these  dates 
    looks  to  be 
    calling  particular  care”. 

    Similar  alerts 
    were  indicated  in 
    this  writer’s  article 
    “  World  Predictions 
    2019”    underlining  need 
    of  more  care 
    and  appropriate  strategy 
    in  relation  to 
    flying  in  the 
    air   were  brought 
    to  the  public 
    domain  in  November 
    -December  2018.  Some 
    of  the  countries 
    like  China  , 
    India  ,  France 
    ,  UK ,  US 
    which  have  reportedly 
    grounded  the  Boeing 
    737   were  indicated 
    in  the  aforesaid 
    article  for  more 
    such  care  and 
    appropriate  strategy.  The 
    events  which  have 
    unfolded  on  the 
    ground  during  the 
    period  covered  by 
    the  alert   suggest 
    that  the  alert 
    was  precise  and 
    meaningful.

  3. does the new model of airplane rely or input too much software? software always have bugs and errors, please dont put lives at risk! let the pilot drive the plane, not the computer!

  4. Life is indeed nothing.They were just going about their lives! That's we ought to be right with Yahweh……
    cos you just never know!

    (Indeed, You have made my days as hand breadths,

    And my age is as nothing before You;

    Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor.

    Surely every man walks about like a shadow;

    Surely they busy themselves in vain;

    He heaps up riches,

    And does not know who will gather them.) Psalm 39:5-6.

    …….that if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Yeshua, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

    Repent ye this day and follow Yeshua.

  5. Despite its size, Singapore has again showed the world its government are far more serious and superior than most other nations. It's efficiency and making the right decision and good governance or management. Not the size of the country or the number of planes it has etc. Singapore lies in the most populous Muslim region and yet there is no Jihad inspired terrorist attack so far despite large number of militants in the region. Is this good governance or coincidence? Even USA has grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9. It again shows despite its small size, the technocrats in Singapore are far more superior to those from other countries. Unfortunately Singapore is too small otherwise it certainly would have contributed immensely to human civilization. Singapore has proved to the world that it isn't the monopoly of the West to provide good governance. Asians notably Chinese and Indians can do as good if not better.
