Renaud and Andrew Amirnovin, Sofeast’s Head of Compliance and Reliability, are talking about the Boeing 737 Max 9 airplane that has been in the news again following a very frightening incident where part of the body blew out leading to a sudden depressurization and emergency landing. But why did this occur? Are there more quality and reliability issues to worry about? We give our thoughts based on news reports, but please note that the official NTSB report has not been published yet.
