Just wondering if the 737-3H4 that sprouted the new sunroof mid-flight is back in action yet...I noticed the NTSB has yet to report a final probable cause for the rapid deompression over West Virginia last July 13th.

Suprisingly, there are very few photos (especially recently) of her in the a.net database.

According to Airfleets this aircraft is still active. Assuming this particular file is up to date the aircraft has not been written off or put in storage.

I checked some more and found a picture taken Jan of 2010, so she is back flying again. The hole was not that substantial as to have the aircraft written off. Here is a link to the photo:

She was in CLE a couple nights ago....looking at her from the outside and inside you can not even tell anything went wrong save a fuselage patch (which are quite common on the worlds 737-100 to -500 these days).

Quoting KELPkid (Thread starter):

It was back in service in less then a week....and well talked about here on A.net. A very simple doubler repair. A good sheetmetal tech could have it done in a few hours. I also doubt you will ever see more then what is currently on the NTSB web site.
