This is an earlier model 737-500 not a "Max".
I will stick my neck out here, until I can get more info. The Aircraft of today are DEIGNED to be flown every day, the philosophy is to fill them with paying passengers and keep them flying. When A/C are not in service ie flying, they still require maintenance, which = $$$$.
Now what has happend over the passed 11 months, to many questions here.
1 when was it last flown?
2, what is the service history on this A/C?
3, was the service completed correctly and fully signed off?
and many more questions to be asked.
I will have to research this one with some of the known aviation reporters out there and report back, I hope they find this one?

Read the graph speed vs altitude, look at the last 30 seconds of flight from nearly 10000 ft to sea level and notice the speed initially falls off but at around 3500ft the speed suddenly accelerates, In my assesment this can only mean one thing, RIP to all.

Thanks KC look forward to more on SJ-182

Back to the Boeing 737 Max 800

". . . a senior Boeing employee has thrown the aircraft into doubt with the publication of an extensive paper claiming not everything has been resolved."

And the Indy - " “One in 25 Max airplanes had already experienced a safety incident within the first year of being in service, two of which happened to be fatal crashes. This track record is unprecedented in modern-day aircraft. The FAA’s recertification fixes fail to adequately address these issues.

" . . . . . one former Boeing pilot told the author… “It’s a pig with lipstick’. Another employee went on record saying that the 737 Max was…. “Designed by clowns, who in turn are supervised by monkeys”."

Thanks Rodger for the update.

In the new book “Boeing 737 Max safe to fly?” report in the Thaiger, there is one major mistake,
The Thaiger is quoting that:
Buyers of the fatally-flawed aircraft would even be expected to add an Angle of Attack gauge to the 737 Max as an optional extra, with a list price of US$80,000. Neither of the two crashed aircraft had these vital gauges on their planes.”
This is wrong it should read
 “Buyers of the fatally-flawed aircraft would even be expected to add the optional 2nd Angle of Attack gauge to the 737 Max……”
The first AOA is standard and drives the MCAS system, the events were caused by erroneous signals from the 1 AOA without a chance of verification from a 2nd AOA, as is on the 787.

Boeing is not clean on the 787 as well.
Since 2009 Boeing have wanted to move the 787 line from Everett, WA to Charleston SC, but only in March 2021 does all 787 assembly shift to SC. Where there are still production problems that still exist.
