That's why he and a lot of others were saved by crew management looking the whole time for an out, an options he just flew the aircraft like the the end. He implies that there are problems with the MAX 8 and it shouldn't crash. From the expert.

lets be careful about annointing sullengerger with infalliability, for that would be wrong. He does possess the safety conciousness lacking from boeing, but it was never the designers or executives ass on the line with the bucking bronco 737 max as it was with Lion Air and Ethiopian Air, and the other owners of several hundred flying defectives, the Max 737, as well as the unsuspecting passengers.I have known about the FAA for years as defective , disfunctional, and policy-rigid.
