    Boeing has revealed a possible faulty wing part on some 737s. 21 planes most likely to have faulty part identified. Boeing has recommended that owners of 112 possibly affected aircraft check out part. This advisory does not include any of the currently grounded 737 MAXs.

    It is not believed that the problem could cause a crash, but it might result in damage to the aircraft.

    UPDATE: Boeing did not intend to fix non-working cockpit warning light until 2020. Repair plan speeded up after 2 members of Congress wrote to Boeing to inquire when they planned to fix this defect.

    If I were Boeing, I would be all hands on deck to get ANY AND ALL defects fixed (or at least scheduled to be fixed) that were attached to anything with "emergency" or "warning" in the part name--such as, "cockpit warning light."

    Boeing dealt another blow. Unexpected wear found in engines being developed for all-new 777x which will result in several months delay in production while part is redesigned and tested. At same time Airbus announces sale of 200 of the new A320XLR aircraft.
