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.

Congrats to Boeing (and SAAB) for winning the Air Force contract for the next generation jet trainer.

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

Story here.  I will pat myself on the back here.  I thought at the time that the Boeing bet on the 787 was better than what Airbus was doing with the A380.

OK, now this is funny

I have to believe the guys at Boeing were messing with everybody when they did this. (h/t to Jim Bates for the pointer)
