A New Problem for Boeing's 737 MAX

We emerge briefly from a lovely summer of gardening and enjoying a beautiful summer in the Pacific Northwest to note some not-so-good news for the aircraft manufacturer just down the road (sort of) from us.

Boeing inspectors reportedly found bulkheads with 'hundred' of misaligned and duplicated holes.

We've flown on the 737 MAX a number of times since the early disasters, and found it to be a comfortable plane.

We have no idea whether this story will have "legs," but it's certainly the kind of publicity Boeing doesn't want, and one can't help but wonder what else might have been missed before the MAX was put into service.
