Boeing Plane Loses Panel in Flight


I keep thinking “didn’t I already report this???”

But no.

These are all new events…!


A post-flight inspection revealed a missing panel on a Boeing 737-800 that had just arrived at its destination in southern Oregon on Friday after flying from San Francisco, officials said, the latest in a series of recent incidents involving aircraft manufactured by the company.

United Flight 433 left San Francisco at 10:20 a.m. and landed at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport in Medford shortly before noon, according to FlightAware. The airport’s director, Amber Judd, said the plane landed safely without incident and the external panel was discovered missing during a post-flight inspection.

The airport paused operations to check the runway and airfield for debris, Judd said, and none was found.

Judd said she believed the United ground crew or pilots doing a routine inspection before the next flight were the ones who noticed the missing panel.

The missing panel was on the underside of the aircraft where the wing meets the body and just next to the landing gear, United said.


Seeing that image makes me want to hire blacks to babysit my bratty children.

Teach them a thing or two about respect.
