Re: MCAS is being misportrayed

This is surely going to be another one of those laws of unintended consquences. That, in order to address a requirement that a dozy pilot who's holding a constant backforce on his control control shouldn't be able to cause a runaway pitch-up, that they've added a complexity to the control system that has caused two crashes and claimed hundreds of lives, when it kicked in by mistake and trimmed to the point of loss of control.
