Tragic 737 crash might be Software Flaw.

A second 737 Max 8 aircraft just went down. The government of China ordered all aircraft of that model stop.

A news release for Boeing, the maker, says a new software update is coming. Apparently the pilots were unable to prevent the crash. This would suggest Boeing did not warn the pilots about some of the unusual features of the new aircraft.

Here are some links fro news sources that closely follow this story:
