Boeing continues to have problems with their SpaceX Crew Dragon competitor.  You being to wonder what kind of work culture problem Boeing has after recent noted failures such as this, the KC-46 and the 737 Max.  Once you lose a good work culture, it is hard to get back. (Again, thank God for Elon Musk)

I’ve previously mentioned that I want to get the BPK 737 kits.  They’ve now shown the box art for the 737-800 kit.  I was hoping for SWA, but it looks like I’ll have to look to aftermarket.

Big Plane Kits (BPK) make a series of 737 kits in 72nd scale.  I’ve wanted these for some time, but they aren’t cheap and apparently not very widely distributed.  They’ve now announced a 737-800.  This just reminds me that I need to pick these kits up.

This report seems to indicate that Boeing screwed up. Not sure how you could install a new safety system and not brief pilots on the change.  I wonder if there is more to the story.

Southwest airlines has taken delivery of their last 737-800.  From here forward all new aircraft will be 737 Max aircraft.
