This and then the whole Boeing 737 MAX fiasco, I am starting to believe that the whole "Western technology supremacy" is a myth now, starting to unravel at the joints.

Ultimately - it is which country gets to spend more money with AFFORDABLE TALENT on PERFECTING MACHINES and TECHNOLOGIES, and China is admittedly not very far behind on that count (because of labor cost advantages) and will surpass the US on it, if not already done.

It is what it is I guess.

I heard a story on PBS last night about the B737 MAX - that a Boeing engineer commented about eight months before the rollout of that plane that he would not be comfortable to have his family fly on it.

Now that is something to think about along with the sad fact of Boeing cheaping out and outsourcing the software development to the Indian IT coolies, which was the primary cause of the B737 MAX crashes.

Maybe not connected, but when you have this pervasive mentality of cutting ballooning aircraft program costs at any price - this is what happens across the board. Human lives are cheap, expendable and can be lost freely like guinea pigs in a lab. In the F35 case, they will muffle stories citing "national security" so we will never find out what caused the crash.

But there are still fools around who willing to pay gold for lame duck from western countries.

Clinging onto old colonial mentality that anything by the west is the golden standard.

yes the F35B crashed and yes its over £100 million fighter jet its sad and full investigation is underway

but considering the HMS Queen Elizabeth Covered 22,000 miles on its first ever voyage, sailed for 7 months visited 44 countries, and conducted 1,000s of sorties and did exercises with over 2 dozens nations from East to West with the largest 5th generation naval air wing in the World speaks volumes, its still a very very very low crash rate against flying and sailing hours

a nation which has a big heart can sustain such a loss and move on and develop, because they are winners and thats only thing they know

a nation which has a small heart cant sustain such a loss and thats why they are losers, they will always pick others faults

if Chinese Casino Carriers CV-16 and CV-17 did 22,000 miles on their maiden voyage there would be no Su33 copies left

the main things is pilot is safe and well

in Russia and China they would kill the pilot and save the plane just to avoid the embarrassment and the dead pilot would be given the status "Hero of the motherland who died to save the plane" followed by 3 decades of Communist propaganda

which would then explain why UK can send its Carrier to South China Sea but China can never its Carrier anywhere close to UK

A British $100 Million eff-up after operating carriers for over eighty/ninety years is noble, and Chinese building Aircraft carriers and have actual fighters operating off of them in less than a decade from scratch is unimpressive?

I am speechless at your logic...

And what is this "big heart" concept you claim the Brits have?

In the last decade they had scrapped everything and the Royal Navy barely had dinghies...

The entire "nobility" the Brits gained in the last century is stealing Trillions of wealth from everyone else, including 17 trillion pounds from India alone.

Before they started stealing from everyone around the world and exporting their citizens everywhere, the Brits were a damp, cold, over-crowded, pandemic and plague-ridden country. Have you read any history?
