Boeing Boeing - part the fifth

Another step closer to The Worst Case Scenario. David Gelles reports on some shucking and jiving.
In August, Boeing met with officials from the F.A.A. and other global aviation agencies to brief them on its efforts to complete fixes on the Max. Regulators asked detailed questions about adjustments to the Max's flight control computers, the Boeing representatives were not prepared to answer.
Instead, the company representatives began to display a PowerPoint presentation on the efforts, according to people briefed on the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was not public.
At that point, the regulators ended the meeting. Weeks later, Boeing still has not answered all their questions.
[my emphasis]

If that sounds like a bunch of crooks looking to avoid the death penalty, well... yeah.
