"Mistake 2000" at last has an effect. Perhaps, Boeing will suffer again


On the 777th and 787th models of planes the bug in the system of GPS navigation was found. The calendar was nullified and began to show August, 1999 of the Photo: Joshua Roberts/Reuters According to messages in social networks, at least one flight of the Netherlands KLM — Boeing 777 from Amsterdam to Bogota was late because of a calendar error at the whole seven o'clock. The same problem concerned the plane of Shanghai Airlines Boeing 787 airline, as well as a number of trips of Boeing 777 and 787 in China. They were postponed or cancelled because of failure of the calendar of the navigation system. The Chinese edition China Aviation Review reported on the Twitter: "Several Boeings 787 in China had problems with postponement of date of GPS on 20 years ago. Some devices were forced to land in order that updating was made". The occurred mistake can be explained, but to justify — hardly, the programmer and Internet expert Grigory Bakunov considers. Grigory Bakunov is a programmer and the Internet expert "After all devices which very expensive. The more more memory it occupies number which you store the. Therefore, here such strategic decision to use significantly less memory at some point was made. Among other things, all these programs were made long ago when nobody thought that people will not update within decades.

It is reported that in March this company distributed two office letters with a warning of possible problems with GPS and the offer of technical support. But, apparently, not all paid attention to these letters. Anyway, but responsibility — in any case moral — lays down rather not on Honeywell, and on Boeing. What in other situation could be a trifle. But not now, the sales director and to development in the CIS countries of Air Charter Service Sergey Vekhov says. Sergey Vekhov the sales director and to development in the CIS countries of Air Charter Service "Is a mistake which practically does not affect safety of flights. These are rather reputation things which, of course, against the background of these tragic incidents do not increase capitalization of stocks of Boeing. It was gaped by IT department, programmers missed ears. Now, so the stocks Boeing once again will decrease. As they will endure it, still it is unknown. If Boeing is closed, then who will buy it? Well, unless our United Aircraft Corporation. Our government why and is not present should think over it?!" on March 10 in Ethiopia there was an accident to participation of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane.
