Maybe ground station radar readings are recorded?

If it makes you feel better, that makes two of us. I do not suffer from anything, but sitting in one of those for me is greater than 50%, which could be bad news. For business related trips it will be hard to avoid them.
Ethiopian Airlines crashed Boeing 737 'black box' found
I've got stories to tell of my flying anxieties...
To makes it worse, even the pilots were unaware of this MCAS
BBC ON THIS DAY | 19 | 1954: 'Metal fatigue' caused Comet crashes
Germany has banned Boeing 737 MAX 8 flights in its airspace following last Sunday's Ethiopian Airlines tragedy near Addis Ababa. Hanover-based European travel operator Tui says it has also halted flights using the plane.
The civil aviation authorities are effectively grounding the fleet. Which is a good thing, as two serious incidents in similar condtions with similar events in the first two years of operation points to either a serious design flaw, a serious flaw in the conversion of crews from the old models to the new, or to both.
They should not be flying at all until the cause of both crashes has been fully determined and changes/lessons learned applied across the fleet.
You can add Ireland and China to that list of countries who have banned them from their airspace.
Ryanair apparently have a huge number on order so I heard. I wonder how they feel about that now. I wouldn't fancy to go on one and I think a lot of people will feel the same way.
Conclusion I take from it, for my next flight I will do something which haven't done ever, namely, asked on which aircraft am I booked and can you find something else, please?
Once they're fixed, be it via engineering or human factors improvements, I'll be happy to get on one.
Scrapping whole series will be financially unthinkable, and aviation safety agency will have to think very hard about this. Black boxes from last accident were recovered.
These are just the mechanical changes, the cockpit displays and controls have changed from connected to fly by wire and LCD displays with multi screens and pages instead of individual dials for each sensor, it just ain't the same plane except for its name it was never recertified or certified as a new plane.
Should have been with that many changes?
