Or is that what is referred to as an 'acceptable risk' ? :roll:

I believe the current catch phrase is "If it's a Boeing then I ain't going!" ........ :lol: :lol:

The fifty have been identified and are being/have been fixed - another 950 were checked and declared OK - the risk (if anything) is in the planes with fewer than 22,600 flight cycles which are NOT subject to virtually immediate mandatory tests but could fly for a year and where Lion Air found cracks on two such 737s .....

Not good for a part with an anticipated 90,000 cycles life...

Southwest and American have just pushed their service date on their already in hand 737 Max’s as well as the ones sitting at Boeing’s employees parking lot to March 2020. This practice has been going on now every month since it’s grounding earlier this year. With each passing month with the MAX sitting on the ground, harder It will become to win the People’s trust in this model. It will be a year by next March that a solution has not been found to resolve the MCAS when it becomes rogue with a mind of it’s own which would want to destroy itself and all aboard. MCAS reminds me of the 70’s movie “Westworld” when mechanical Yul Brynner goes rogue and start killing real people.

That was a good film. Hard to believe it was as long ago as 1973. Written by Michael Chrichton (Jurassic Park).

Yes, great movie.
Famous last words. :D

The last few years I have been meeting with friends from the 70’s in London where we had all worked at the Met Police forensic lab, a day of “pub crawling” of the pubs which are still in existence from then, where I had suggested that all 5 of us should sail together to bring my sailboat back to Europe from California, and the response was, “let’s see, a bunch of “geriatrics” on a sailboat across the Pacific together, what could possibly go wrong?” :lol:
