JUST IN: Head of Boeing’s 737 Max Program OUT in Wake of Mid-Air Blowout, Safety Concerns

The head of Boeing’s 737 Max program is OUT after a mid-air blowout.

“Boeing removed executive Ed Clark, the head of its 737 Max passenger jet program, in the wake of several safety and quality-related incidents.” – CNN reported.

Last month a large piece of an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 MAX blew out in mid-air.

The plane door flew off amid Boeing’s focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) hiring practices over a passenger’s safety.

According to a new report released by the National Transportation Safety Board earlier this month, the door panel that blew out had no bolts installed.

Furthermore, the faulty door plug was manufactured by Spirit AeroSystems in Malaysia.

“Whatever final conclusions are reached, Boeing is accountable for what happened,” Boeing President and CEO Dave Calhoun said in the statement. “An event like this must not happen on an airplane that leaves our factory. We simply must do better for our customers and their passengers. We are implementing a comprehensive plan to strengthen quality and the confidence of our stakeholders. It will take significant, demonstrated action and transparency at every turn — and that is where we are squarely focused.”

More than 2 dozen passengers are suing Boeing and the airline after over the midair blowout.

A former Boeing Exec Ed Pierson this week told NewsNation that the MAX airplane is definitely not safe and that he avoids flying on those airliners due to safety concerns.
