She Flies Like A Duck, Its Seattle After-all

The 737 Max did its nerd thing today in stormy weather. Being so busy on a Friday, I watched the replay on Boeing.com website. Cheers were heard from those in rain gear. The 737 Max is waterproof and can handle a wind chop on approach. It looks bigger than the NG version of the 737. It was the rain that did that optical on my senses. The engine sound was so-in-the-world of high sound frequency the rumble didn't exist. 

Maybe the bass was not turned on with the filming equipment, as it made me squirm a bit with an American Idol reference of being a little "pitchy". It achieved a hollow engine echo, as if a hair dryer was in your ear. These are my critiques about the flawless Max first flight on a stormy wind-chop day. Brave or confident is the program current stance. If it had been a 787 first flight, it would have never been launched on a day like this, but the Max has matured more than we may know, as it braved the storming gusts with success. The claim of quieter engines suffered from rainy conditions, and a strange audio settings on shrill. Tomorrow, the flying test schedule starts with more flights and for the next 12 months.
