Boeing 737

Potential defective parts found in wings of the Boeing 737 (including some of the 737 MAX planes that are currently grounded. Link here. FAA. File under: "when it rains, it pours."


  1. So, if I read it right, Population has steadily grown (No surprise), Miles traveled has increased, almost on same plane as pop increase, and yet, fatalities have fallen. Thats a good thing.

    1. I was surprised to see how far annual fatalities have fallen. I've always thought annual deaths were about 50,000 but now they are around 35,000, and that's with significantly more miles driven.
