Given that Congress is largely funded by US corporations and the current amount of jingoism I don't see a program getting the green light without it being a largely US designed and developed product.

Boeing tried to offer it decades ago on the initial 777s and nobody bit. Now it’s a forced feature and yet another thing that can break.

A blown tire leading to a catastrophic explosion is a design flaw. That's oversimplifying the chain of events that come with every accident. And not necessarily true, by the way. This accident would not have happened at LHR, or to BA. The aircraft was overweight, the runway was not inspected, and I...Jump to post
