    Seeks said he bought 300 Boeing shares in early March, and sold them at a loss within the last two weeks. The lawsuit seeks damages for Boeing stock investors from Jan. 8 to March 21.
    Should this not be prosecuted by the state on a charge of blackmail against Boeing by Mr Seeks? It certainly isn't an action based on losses by a genuine, but deluded, investor.

    This sort of behaviour should be strongly discouraged due to its bringing the legal system into (further) disrepute.

    One might as well make suit against the New York Stock Exchange, since they were obviously complicit in the reduction of Boeing's share price.

    This happens all the time. It is not a government investigation it is a civil lawsuit and one set up by buying stock so that they can claim loss.

    Will Hutton had a scathing article in " The Guardian " recently on this subject. Everybody got a kicking - Boeing, the FAA and the Trump administration.

    I'll get it and read it - thanks!

    The best book I've ever read (and anyone in aviation I'd thoroughly recommend it to) is

    Perhaps a small anemometer outside the pilot's window with a mechanical counter and a push-button reset?

    Seems Airbus needs one too. You'd think the designers might forsee icing of the Pitot Tubes and maybe draw off a little of the engine's heat to make sure icing never happens again? Heck, maybe even have a separate, electrical heating system as a backup; just in case something goes wrong?

    And maybe a fore and aft spirit level between the pilot's seats?

    Designer hubris rides again, right into the ground.

    737 Max flew right over my house yesterday, likely a Boeing test flight of whatever changes are being implemented.

    Regards.

    I've just read that Boeing seem to have problems with their new Dreamliner 787. Has anyone else heard this?

    Nope. According to the article I read it's because of Boeing being too busy producing new planes that they've become sloppy and performing poor QC on the finished planes.

    I've no idea how true this is but certainly not good news for Boeing if even partially true.

    I got it from a Danish newspaper that seems to have it from New York Times. FAA also seems to back up the story.

    Alvorlig anklage mod Boeing: Livsfarligt sjuskeri i nyt fly – Ekstra Bladet

    My translation of the heading is "Serious charges against Boeing: Life threatening sloppiness in new planes.

    This (Danish) newspaper is known more for "sensation" than reliable facts so that's why I asked.

    Trouble is it's changing times.
    Where i did my apprenticeship the instrument builders were skilled.
    Now, they're all long gone and assy is by the cheapest people they can get.
    The Prod Eng and Eng dept love to refer to assy staff as burger flippers...
    It has caught the company out a couple of big times though that i know of. It's not the fault of the assembly guys as they don't necessarily know any better.

    It's like when dealing with new design guys that come into the game wanting to change the world.
    When you've been in aerospace all your life it is easier to lower your standards where applicable and adapt.
    But coming from commercial into aerospace is a whole different ball game.

    I am not seeing it posted here but someone needs to say it.

    Boeing needs to be forced to recall the 737 Max, scrap them, and their government contracts need to be forever canceled.

    The people that died in their planes are dead and not coming back.

    Boeing, Boeing, gone

    Boeing also has had issues with the 767/KC-46 tanker as well.


    Loose Tools, Debris Left During Manufacturing Led to Grounding of KC-46 Tankers | Military.com

    I was periparilly involved in a project for some hardware to train pilots on how to refuel from the 767/KC-46, to say it was a badly managed shit show was an understatement. I've been involved in multiple Boeing projects, and for the most part Boeing engineers are on the ball.

    Were you working with the Flight Refuelling guys from Wimborne (UK?)
