Saw it the first time around, and it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know.

Seems it might take a bit longer. Seems they are now looking at the 737NG series as well. Nice bit of info here

Been following this man on Youtube who seems to be up to speed on the issues.

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Further problems for the Boeing 737 Max

While aircraft manufacturer Boeing is still in the process of attempting to return the 737 MAX to active duty, a flaw has also been found on some of its 737 Next Generation craft. According to KOMO News, cracked pickle forks⁠—which anchor the fuselage to the wing⁠—have been detected in several planes of this type during the course of a recent inspection.

These pickle forks, reports the outlet, are meant to endure over 90,000 takeoffs and landings. If this part fails while a craft is in operation, “dire results” could be expected. The Next Generation craft on which the flaw was uncovered was reported to have logged just 35,000 takeoffs and landings

The latest.............

 


The march to get the Boeing 737 MAX continues, as European authorities say they have completed their test flights of the troubled airframe. Taking place in Vancouver, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency is now evaluating the data from the air trials, which will be reviewed by the Joint Operations Evaluation Board.

After months of continued data collection, the Boeing 737 MAX may be one step closer to flying passengers once again. In a press release, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) says they have completed their test flights, and is now evaluating data gathered from the trials.

I didn't know the airframe was a problem.
