> why do we not hear about many failures

Because on the OG 737s, the AOA sensors aren't tied into a system that kills you if they fail, thus making the evening news.

In the OG models, they mainly run a display. The pilot notes it's wrong/disagrees with the copilot's display, and ignores it, logging a maintenance ticket. That does not make the evening news.
