    Remember this one?
    The missing Malaysia Airlines plane, flight MH370, had 239 people on board and was enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March 2014 when air traffic control staff lost contact with it.

    Something drastic happened up there to make that 737 come down very rapidly. That plane was relatively new,having been built in 2015. Some of the 737-800 models have come under scrutiny in recent years because of fatigue cracks found in the mounting bolts which attach the wings to the fuselage. The 737-800 model is the most popular model currently. This is like a case of “deadly déjà vu” because previous 737 models were involved.

    Hopefully whatever happened can be solved quickly. Boeing is already skating a slippery slope with issues involving the 737 Max,787 quality control and 777 X delays.

    Simple solution; stop buying Boeing and start buying Airbus.

    That’s dandy and all but the production on some of their models are sold out for some time. The A321 NEO for example is sold out until 2025 at the earliest!

    The Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility, the first commercial aircraft production site for Airbus in the country, opened in Mobile, Alabama in 2015. The line currently assembles A319, A320 and A321 aircraft, producing 60 aircraft annually.

    Even with the Mobile plant operating at full capacity Airbus still has a significant order backlog
