The NTSB cited shortcomings in Pratt's inspection processes for setting the stage for that accident.

They recently built a brand new multi-story building down here off of 95 in Palm Beach County. They had to cut corners somewhere.

Also, a lot have to do with Republican administrations deregulating FAA oversight of the airline industry.  I'm sure a lot of critical maintenance items are not checked as frequently as should.  Another example of industries putting profit over safety.

JT, can you imagine if that was a plane filled with us, (Soul Plane),  and someone looked out the window and saw that?  :o You know white folk will take out their phone and go Facebook live and give a detained description of the event as it unfold.  Not on Soul Plane. "What the funk, this b!tch on fire. i'm getting out of here.  Where is the exit aisle and the parachute!". Same if the Titanic was a Tom Joyner cruise. "Everybody grab an oar and start rowing, we can't let the b!tch go down, I can't swim."

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here until Onnidan goes off line.  ;D

yep, if that wing had been damaged. Shed the thought.

???.....must my home county and/or home state be blamed for EVERY calamity that happens in this country?

soflo, Pratt-Whitney enjoys a FINE reputation in Palm Beach County and has done so for decades now. Are we certain that the Denver incident is a result of a default in one of their engines?  :shrug:

Other than that, carry on, as I’m sure Alum relishes the opportunity to CONTINUE to regale us with his engineering expertise.  ::)
