Was repaired, and put back into service with UA in 1999.
However was re-registered N4724U according to wikipedia.
The A/C was then taken out of service and passed onto Air Dabia as C5-FBS in 1997. According to airfleets.net it has been stored since 2000.

So what your saying is that UA, the FAA, and Boeing are wrong and that the engineering studies and test performed after repairs are lies and should never have happened?

No, I think he's saying that 20/20 portrayed United as being irresponsible for their choice to put it back in service....
