Deadly 737 Max jets no longer a Boeing concern – for now: Production suspended after biz runs out of parking space

The problem is not a 50 year old airframe or design: Instead, its a 50 year old AIRFRAME SPECIFICATION that hasn't properly matched any model of the aircraft since its first design upgrade and, by now, bears little, if any resemblance to the current aircraft.

Couple that with an FAA due diligence performance which looks very like "we'll sign it off as soon as you tell us which box you want the signature in" and crashes are inevitable.

Seem to me that the bosses of both Boeing and the FAA should be for the chop.
