"Operators of Boeing 737 airliners should not operate fuel boost pumps on almost-empty fuel tanks, the manufacturer Thursday told carriers worldwide."

And people STILL think TW800 was a missile? This is the third (or fifth, depending if you include the Iran Air 747 that blew up over Madrid in 75 and the Pan Am 707 that blew up near Baltimore in the sixties) Boeing fuel tank to explode.

Anyone else know that as well as the Thai PM, Mel C (Sporty aka The Talented One) from the Spice Girls was also in the departure lounge at BKK when their lovely pink purple and white 737 sitting at the end of the jetbridge disappeared in a ball of fire?!



fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

Boeing should come out with some kind of heat shield for the 737 & 747 to put between the fuel tanks and air conditioning units to prevent these incidents from happening again.
