Boeing warns of possible electrical issue in some 737 MAX airplanes, telling airlines to address ‘prior to further operations’
Three of America’s largest airlines have grounded more than 60 Boeing 737 MAX airplanes on Friday.
They can't be too old then, otherwise one's got to add 6 months of issues once they return to service due to intermittent electrical faults, driven mainly by corrosion in the electrical connectors.in the airline I work for, the A320 has suffered the following from being in storage, following the manufacturer's guidelines about blanking of inlets and so on; corroded main engine inlets, corroded thrust reverser panels, corroded pitot tubes, corroded brake units and even cracked avionics racks (from being towed around the airport to save ramp space for active aircraft) . All down to be sat idle for long periods and the blanks holding water in place. If you thought flying them cost money, sitting still is worse.
