737 Max

IEEE Spectrum has an article that looks at how the design of the Boeing 737 Max may have contributed to the recent crashes. One of the key elements of the story is the size and position of the engines. I thought their drawing, while adequate, was weak, so I went looking for some pictures. Take a look at the size and position of the engines in these pictures and I think you will see what Gregory is talking about.
