Over the last few months, countless experts have speculated about the tragic 737 MAX 8 crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. Aviation experts, journalists, the manufacturer, congressional members, carriers, pilot unions, and even grieving families have all played a part in shaping a narrative of who to blame. This has morphed into a political David vs. Goliath-like atmosphere, quick to demonize a supposed devious manufacturer and a conspiring federal aviation administration (FAA). It has become a politicized three-ring circus of finger-pointing and an insatiable urgency to find a culprit. What is getting missed is what really happened.
