Boeing emails say 737 MAX ‘designed by clowns’ who are 'supervised by monkeys'

BOEING employees bantered about whether the 737 MAX was safe to fly and joked that the aircraft was “designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys,” according to emails released late Thursday.

“Would you put your family on a MAX simulator trained aircraft? I wouldn’t,” a Boeing employee wrote to a colleague in one newly released exchange conducted about eight months before the first of two fatal MAX crashes.
