And the T-7A is making progress, but is years behind (as most programs like this are), and with fixed-price model, Boeing has lost 1.1b on it so far, and it's impacting USAF pilot training.

Not to mention the KC-46 ... *

Boeing has said that it will stop building Hornets by/in 2025.


* p.s. I see that Canada has now ordered a mix of 9 new build/used airframe Airbus A330 MRTTs to replace & expand on it's existing A310s (CC150)

"loose bolt in the rudder control system" "Boeing also discovered a nut that was not properly tightened in an aircraft that had not yet been delivered, according to the FAA."
wow......

""Out of an abundance of caution, we are recommending operators inspect their 737 Max airplanes and inform us of any findings."
caution, its your job to deliver those things, now planes are getting patches too ?

You just gotta know that behind closed doors, Airbus execs are relishing this.

And now this...

Alaska Airlines grounds Boeing 737-9 fleet after emergency landing in Portland
https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/ne...n-portland/ar-AA1mxEFp?OCID=ansmsnnews11

The cabin became depressurized shortly after takeoff and the pilots asked for an emergency landing, according to the transcript of an air traffic control call from LiveATC.net. A photo posted on social media appeared to show a hole in the fuselage next to a passenger seat.

Scary, but is that window blowout a problem with the Boeing aircraft, or bad maintenance procedures on the airline company?

That's the question investigators will try to answer, but given the fact that it is a pretty new airplane (started flying in October, so no major base maintenance checks to be done on it yet) it might be an assembly issue at Boeing's, with this particular airframe at least.

Boeing hires contractors for over half their workforce...

Bolts not tightened on doors:

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/a...ata-erased-after-mid-flight-door-blowout




Employee benefits are too expensive for this megacorporation to afford.

I say airlines cannot afford to buy their planes anymore.

The irony here is that a huge chunk of the workforce for the US government is also contractors so the government calling out Boeing on this is the pot calling the kettle black.
