      The Americans can't even build a plan anymore with out a China man involved. They will clone a Boeing and build their own

    2. ACADMan

      Mmm...Nah. I'm not overly concerned- Yet. Will keep an eye on the new effort at Chinese aircraft production, though. Give them another 15 years, and call me back.

    3. Better With Rum

      Just because China grounded the 737 first doesn't lend to their credibility. I will NEVER get on a Chinese produced plain.

    4. A320 CAT3DUAL

      Simple. GE must cease selling aircraft engines and spares to China. See? Easy! NEXT!

    5. Francisco Neto

      USA 🇺🇸 needs to fire 🔥 trump today,otherwise the United States 🇺🇸 will lose it’s ground in world’s economies. Trump is the distraction of America

    6. Francisco Neto

      Time to disrupt CHINAS economy

    7. 罗浩钤

      I fly 737max once before, left wing starts to over shake after 30 minutes took off, literally worst plane i tried, i miss my DA42 after that

    8. Mark Fischer

      China's Boeing problem. With a huge fleet of Boeing aircraft, China faces the prospect that if the split between the United States and China becomes heated and rancorous enough, the US government could cut China off from spare parts, service updates, and everything else needed from the manufacturer to sustain after sales support. China's fleet of Boeing aircraft could become a total loss.

    9. anthony chan

      China should not buy anything from the US at all the way trump treated Huawei and China companies. The END trump will be a BIG LOSER. Time will tell.

    10. Sven Reuser

      sees united states and china, but than continents. countries in those continents: am i a joke to you?

    11. MaddBuddah

      I'm pooping

    12. Anand kumar

      Who has guts to sit in China made airplanes and fly, There is no guarantee that they come back alive.....

    13. Kreuzritter Gottes

      china is garbage. Tawain forever!

    14. Mike Marley

      Beware the chinaman ,they want to eat every living thing on our planet and every dead thing also.Serpents disguised as worms.

    15. joey saladass

      Lul china plane lol

    16. peter yuan

      I think China had purposely sabotage the two 737 MAX to make Boeing look bad.

    17. Ming Hu

      Ban Boeing in China to Make America Great Again

    18. Laura O'Chamney

      Nah, Chinese made aircrafts are the worst. They're noisy, unreliable and unsafe. Similarly, other countries like Russia have built their own planes, but they have gone nowhere. Despite some accidents here and there, Boeing aircrafts are still the safest on the planet. According to the latest reports, the average person living in the United States has a 1 in 102 chance of dying in a car crash, compared to a 1 in 205,552 chance of dying as a passenger on an airplane.

    22. Christos Perchanidis

      You should also mentioned that Russia and China develop jointly a new plane (that Comac one)

    23. cnccarving

      mightbe it sounds bad that boeing has to lower price, but same time it will be cheaper thna airbus then, if same price makes 10 boeing plane versus 6-7 airbus plane then boeing can slice way bigger from the chinese market

    24. cnccarving

      on the end china will start their own airplane production

    25. Tomato Madness

      If I would fly 1000hrs non stop, I'll only do it with A320. lol!

      Mainstream education is not an actual representative of a true understanding of reality, it is the biggest mind control church ever, with a very sophisticated compartmentalised traumatised fractured psychological fear based control system and that doesn't need you're belief, try telling the government that you promise not to break any laws and you no longer need to pay tax and you could ask how can they tell you what to do if they work for you, with an educated and entertained understanding of freedom you now in the land of make believe, it is as they say time to wake up, now don't think I'm telling you this because of compassion most of you are to childish to care with poorly maintained minds that will now act in according to you're programming brainwashing education call it what you're comfortable with

    31. Nadir Osman

      If you look at the broader picture, this is part of transition and shifting of centre of gravity from West to the East and hence the ensuing struggle & readjustment on the world level.

      What's spooky is that Hainan has become a peninsula!

    33. Airtheriey Morientes

      No issue...only speculation from USA...

    34. Crypto Dwayne

      China will just Steal all the parts and Technology that's on the Boeing Planes. It's what they do

    35. John sweda

      The Airbus is a much superior plane it is fully autonomous no pilot error can be introduced into the plane

      1. F.B.I

        No no no no no. You got the wrong idea. Taking off by itself is impossible for any passenger plane, that’s why the pilots are there. Landing by itself without any human input would cause structural damage to the airframe since the plane doesn’t know the conditions/size of the runway. Boeing‘ and Airbus‘s Autopilot are really much the same, I have tried them in both simulators.

      2. John sweda

        @F.B.I yes it's fully autonomous it can land and take off fly completely by itself without any interaction from a human being, I think this is with with all Airbus. Boeing 737 fleet of planes need human interaction there's only autopilot.

      3. F.B.I

        I have never even heard of a fully automated airplane from Airbus. I can’t even understand what you’ve written.

    36. happy99

      fuck chinazi

    37. Ming Fang

      To be frank, i will never choice Boeing during my left life. You are evil and not honest. You made fault and pretend nothing happened. What the fuck!

    38. The Unboxing Experience

      Top notch quality! Keep up the good work

    41. Findyification

      FAA get paid by boeing its useless now

    42. Mr. Showers

      Parachutes not included...

    43. Teacher Chris

      All manufacturing must be done in US; otherwise, the CCP's CAAC will sabotage production and ground planes then sue and cripple Boeing meanwhile the CCP steals the IP and makes these counterfeit planes and shoddy parts themselves. The world can't afford an out of control overpopulated country like China to continue profiting from polluting, stealing, lying, infiltrating civilized democratized god-fearing nations like US.

    44. Mr. Showers

      I am predicting the weather. "Todays forcast is showers closely followed by Chinese made aircraft...."

    45. Mark Moses

      That will stop guarantee it

    46. Matlockization

      The Chinese have always been a problem to do trade with.

    47. p D

      Boeing is a stupid company. They did not know who they are working with.

    48. David Bardavidi

      Chinese will dump boeing due to the National security risk it poses to non-US nations as soon as their capabilities are in Sync.........Boeing is too involved in Arms manufacturing not to be involved in spying and Info. Extracting operations.......After all no one company in US has the Power to regulates itself unless involved in Covert ops.............The relationship of Boeing and the Defense dept. is too close and highly risky for any major Nation not to pay attention to...........Chinese might be Friendly and Diplomatic but would not take them for Naivity.........Selah

    49. Mia DoubleZeroSeven

      The “cheap” always becomes expensive. Thanks to the greed of corporations; America has decimated its manufacturing, transferred its wealth & handed over their blueprints...all whilst crushing the middle class. They were outplayed. SMH

      1. K. Sharma

        Whats SMH?

    50. sushi777300

      The FAA failed to keep its leading role because it tried to protect Boeing and ignored the evidence

    51. mitchell wood

      i got bored.. opened up porn.. jerked off... allt he while this guys blabbering in the back ground... looked at my facebook.. then realized I had this playing in the background the whole time for the past 9 minutes and completely forget about fucking boeing or china.

    52. Stefan Adamcik

      Look at that Whore, Macron. What a perfect prostitute he is, smiling, while he has that Chinese cock in his mouth. Making eye contact while he sucks, and all. So good.What does he charge for an hour?

    53. The Foreigner

      Airbus is better anyway. Boeing is over rated and over priced.

      2. Erwin Rommel

        @walk in beauty ?

    58. sailorashore

      Boeings production is now out-scourced since the move to Obamas' Chicago it a different company..

    59. Lost Poet

      COMAC was charged with copying the A320 and 737 without the benefit of experience with design and manufacturing regulations or the tribal knowledge of Boeing or Airbus. Historically Chinese corporations seem to expect regulations to adapt to their needs which fails to work in a world regulated market such as aviation. This will require a massive shift in thinking at COMAC and a willingness to adapt to the realities of the rest of the world. It is a significant accomplishment that they have produced a prototype C919 that has even flown but this falls decades short of Chinas stated goal to mass produce an FAA or EASA Type Certificated aircraft for the world market. Unfortunately for Chinas world stage ambitions the C919 may be be delayed long enough to be out of date. Uncertified outside of China the C919 if produced at all will exist only in small numbers. The odds are China will eventually get commercial aircraft manufacturing right but the rest of the world sees the obvious need for huge cultural and intellectual evolution. These changes may require generations to accomplish and cannot just be willed into place by government decree.

      1. yehoutube

        So..... you don't know even C919 can only fly in China, it means COMAC will be Top1 maker

    60. powerone1

      You can not deal with China using free market principles. You have to look at any large company as being the Chinese government. Tariffs are a very important tool to use. Never allow Chinese products to be sold in the US at a lower cost then what products manufactured in the US can be purchased at.

    61. Rishav

      why does china need planes when they have trains?

      1. Liu Leo

        A train can't fly, can it?

    62. James L

      Brilliant vid !!

    63. Magnus Juul

      Funny how when china actually makes "their own" plane, it's just a ripoff off a european plane. They really have zero innovative capabilities what-so-ever. I don't get why western countries still keep pouring money into china, when they'll just become our greatest competitor in a 100 years or so

      1. sophon block

        Why western countries still keep investing into China? The same reason Boeing made a crap passenger plane 737Max, because they want to earn more with spending less. However China nowadays produce better products with cheaper prices. China is becoming the new Japan, superior technology development that becomes better and better. Actually WE, the consumers benefit from this. The ones are crying are the 1% filthy rich, and I am not sorry for them,. for too long they cheated our money with overpriced products and getting it made with slave wage labor.

    64. Ken Kir

      Why is China buying so many planes? Well capital chases assets, and right now China has a capitalization bubble. What will China do to those planes? Probably sell most of them at a loss in 5 years. China is fast becoming japan 1984 2.0

    65. Jamy Chong

      It's weird that clicked on this video andI enjoyed it as I have no interest in airlines or China

    66. Cbeddoe19

      Boeing screwed the pooch big time in multiple ways with the 437 max.

      1. Cbeddoe19

        @Noble Six lol. That was supposed to be a 7. Oops.

      2. Noble Six

        Well. Considering they never made it, yes

    67. Waleed Banjar

      China are the biggest Boeing costumers and yet, your STUPID president are threatening china by cutting American services such as Android, what a stupid move

    68. Colonel Chuck

      Airbus and Boeing are both on the government tit, but those awful, scheming Chinese!

    69. Brennen Cox

      9:28 Forced technology transfer... DUH.

    70. Brennen Cox

      In the long run, which is the game the CCP is playing, it doesnt matter. China already produces its own scooters and cars. Commercial aircraft are soon on the horizon. So it doesnt matter what Boeing or Airbus do, the CCP will replace them with domestically made aircraft as soon as it can. And just like with all its other markets, outsiders will be pushed out (largely) and domestically produced goods will be given an unfair advantage. Edit: Oh, 7:44 this video mentions that.
