Boeing Shoots Own Foot, Stops Twice to Reload
Well, coming off the MCAS/MAX disaster it's nice to see Boeing turning it around.

Oops. Looks like Boeing wants to extend the streak.

Was Boeing wandering around Whitefish Montana?
The Economist covered Boeing and their troubles this week.
If you prefer the audio version, it's available in their podcast.
Hey we were just talking about Boeing's design brief from 1974... coming back to haunt our budgets!
Even the Air Force admits this one's a complete loser.

@roadkilled I see you are reading the Beacon now. I have not posted a police blotter in a few weeks.

@roadkilled Welp, I guess we're ("we" meaning all tax paying Americans) are about to co-own an aircraft company, that's kind of neat. Hope it at least pays off better than the two car companies we briefly owned.

@highlander I don't normally read the Beacon. However, it made it to Fark where it could be seen by a national audience of people looking for weird news.

@cressida-s_kanji_4_diamante Just to complete the civilian/military/space trifecta, they are also having to redo the engine test on the SLS next month after last month's failure (given that they are reusing the Shuttle engines, it's surprising they missed this part up). They've got commerce crew coming up at the end of March I think, maybe they won't screw that up this time?
Yeah, I didn't have a link to pile on but that was the "second" reload-- SLS is going 'not so great' and even the "easy" parts, like the engine design, are proving problematic.
I'm curious about the Space-X engine failure today... both programs need those to be absolutely rock-solid, so it's an interesting test case of "Clean Sheet Design" versus "Tried and True".
