Not much daylight between Boeing and the FAA

So a phone call from the CEO of Boeing to Pres Trump led to the FAA being the only aviation agency in the world to not ground the planes. And they did it solely because Boeing said everything was fine.

After the call was made public and Canada grounded the planes, the FAA finally acted (actually it was the President who did it).

This VF article highlighting the too-cozy relationship between the airline and the agency that regulates them is interesting and not too reassuring.

It's also important to note that many folks have specifically laid the deaths at the feet of President Trump, stating that the crashes could have been avoided but for the government shutdown.

I personally think that's specious... when you consider that Boeing's paid shill in the DOD is already trying to murder soldiers by forcing an antique weapon system that nobody wants. (FWIW.. I have a long standing love of the F-15 and F-18 after seeing them 'born' as an airplane crazy kid growing up in STL.)

Muilenburg visited Mar-a-Lago after 45 trashed them over AF1 cost. Also Boeing donated $1 million to the famous over-funded Inaugural.

The FAA appears to have reversed course.

Boeing pretty much had no choice.

It is a matter of the FOX guarding the HEN HOUSE ! Boeing is the arbitor. I was shocked when I heard of the "collusion" of Boeing and FAA. And I heard 45 say "God Bless Boeing". WHAT???????
