Today’s key stories featuring Boeing include conflicting opinions among Boeing whistleblowers.  An interesting analysis in the Seattle Times indicates that the threat from shimming fuselage sections that don’t fit together well may be much less than the latest whistleblower claims, based on an analysis by another former Boeing employee.

In other stories, a Russian airline has reverse engineered engine repairs to avoid sanctions on Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s, Allegiant Airlines has reworked its plans for additional 737 MAX 8s this year, and Boeing problems are dragging in the FAA.

An editorial from the Seattle Times that was distributed to multiple news outlets cites the legacy of the late Frank Shrontz at Boeing.  The former CEO, when the organization was still engineering driven and being on-time and on-budget with development programs, needs to be emulated today to solve Boeing’s multiple problems.
