Boeing doesn't make engines so this one might not be their fault. We'll see when we find out what caused it.

Good to hear it landed safely though.

Woodworm I think.


A guy walks into a bar and hears two women speaking in a British accent. He asks, "Are you ladies from England?" One says to him "No, it's Wales, you idiot!" So, then the guy says, "Okay, sorry. So, are you two whales from England?"

Delamination of the composite material, looks like.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Didn't want to start a thread.

Are these airplanes safe to fly on?

First part:

Airbus A321 or Boeing 739

Second part:

CRJ900 or ERJ135 or EMB135XR

Thank you.

I can't even fathom the stress the Boeing employees who are devising this new quality control plan are going through right now!

Happen again today with another Boeing

Quote
A tire fell off a United Airlines plane taking off from San Francisco International Airport Thursday morning and landed in a nearby parking lot, damaging several vehicles, officials said.

The tire from Japan-bound United Flight 35, which was diverted to Los Angeles, ended up landing in an airport employee parking lot, SFO spokesman Doug Yakel said. No injuries were reported.

Video footage captured the moment when the tire from the Boeing 777-200 came off the rea

Boeing whistleblower found dead in apparent suicide

"A prominent Boeing whistleblower who reported on safety and quality control concerns in the company’s production line was found dead on Saturday, according to South Carolina authorities.

John Barnett, 62, died of an apparent self-inflicted wound on Friday, the Charleston County Coroner’s office said. He was found in his truck at his hotel’s parking lot.

A 32-year veteran of Boeing, Barnett’s 2019 whistleblower allegations claimed that over-worked employees at its South Carolina plant frequently fitted substandard parts on planes and reported faulty oxygen systems that could result in as many as one in four oxygen masks not operating properly.

Boeing denied Barnett’s claims, but a follow-up FAA investigation lent credence to some aspects of his allegations. A report found that over 50 “non-conforming” parts were unable to be traced and were lost in the company’s system.

Barnett was in Charleston to be questioned for a long-running retaliation suit against the company.

His death comes when Boeing is under increased regulatory scrutiny for its 737 Max aircraft manufacturing process after a door blew out of a flight midair in January. The incident launched a widespread investigation into Boeing manufacturing, discovering lax quality control.

Barnett’s claims were not related to the 737 Max or the Washington manufacturing plant involved in the scandal.

In a statement to the BBC, Boeing said: “We are saddened by Mr. Barnett’s passing, and our thoughts are with his family and friends.”"

It just keeps getting worse and worse for Boeing. They are starting to enter ENRON bad PR territory now.

Shouldn't we be looking into the maintenance standards of these airline companies for most of these?
How often do wheels fall off of airliners anyway? I've seen stories of those popping up for years. What's weird is the frequency of late.
