General Discussion Forum | 787 problems...?
yes, the Daily Heil does make a drama of these things but it's a genuine concern. Boeing reputedly used an off-the-shelf component in the avionics that has a vulnerability, and could potentially be attacked by malware of some sort.
As the 787 is more advanced and networked than any previous civil aircraft the full story would be interesting.
Most pilots fly by instinct and feelings and not by electric signals.
yes i gather there are many backups but !
Basically over-pulling or pushing the stick so the movable surfaces 'flap' as the pilot tries to compensate.
It has to be a two-way system with feedback from the flying surfaces or the pilot just doesn't have sufficient control.
