    Der Spiegel piling in to Boeing with a very in-depth well-research piece.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the executive suite at Boeing needs to be completely cleared and replaced with people untainted by this profit-centric focus that has been built up over the years. I find it absolutely amazing that neither the board nor shareholders have forced Muilenburg out yet.

    The latest complication in the long-running saga, these officials said, stems from a Boeing briefing in August that was cut short by regulators from the U.S., Europe, Brazil and elsewhere, who complained that the plane maker had failed to provide technical details and answer specific questions about modifications in the operation of MAX flight-control computers.
    Boeing proving they STILL don't get it. Muilenburg needs to go, and a fresh board bought in to select a new management team.

    Seems Boeing image (and that of the US FAA) have been tainted for decades to come.

    On other news - there are some recent photos of 737 fuselages observed swimming upriver to their spawning grounds.

    Minor issue surfaces with exploding cargo doors during ground testing. No animals were hurt in this test.

    The Seattle Times reported a cargo door exploded outward during a high-pressure stress test on the ground. The newspaper said the accident occurred on a static test airplane, which is built for ground testing only and not intended to fly.
