    It is now confirmed officialy that there WERE several bolts actually missing from the door that blow off of the Alaskan aircraft
    How many other of these aircraft are flying with bolts missing…….
    I have no wish to see the demise of Boeing as we used to know it but I strongly suspect that one more failure of this nature will spell the end for them as a group.
    Every day now there are additional reports of assembly problems,unchecked faults and lack of effective control in the construction processes and this cannot continue without some drastic action being taken by Boeing themselves or by the regulators.
    Major customers are openingly declaring that they have no faith in the companys products or ability to build them -sad.

    How Boeing has managed to stay viable as an airplane manufacturer is amazing. I do believe they have a very strong relationship with the American government. Hard to fathom why they’re allowed to continue in business.

    Part of the problem is dependency, and another is the lack of an alternative:
