A year later, Boeing 737 Max airline Lion Air fell in Indonesia, the victims of this crash were 189 people.

All this is according to internal documents published by Boeing on January 9. However, if they were presented in an edited form. The original version of these documents were later provided to Bloomberg by the House of representatives of the Congress of the United States.

“Now this g**the Ahn Lion Air may need a simulator in order to fly at Max. Maybe they are stupid? And now I have to think how to pull this off! Idiots”— wrote in June 2017, one of the employees of Boeing. His colleague replied: “what the… ?! Their partner already flies on it!” Obviously, there was meant Malindo Air, a Malaysian carrier, which was the first who began commercial operation 737 Max.

Earlier it was reported that employees of Boeing in the correspondence between them was called the 737 Max are extremely unreliable, saying that he was “created clowns under the supervision of the apes” and that they would never put their family in this plane. Note that previously, Boeing insisted that additional training of the pilots of the 737 Max on the simulator are not required. The company now changed its position, stating that he would recommend such training.
