Re: B787-900 or B787_9

I am surprised that designating an A346 as an A345 is even allowed, I mean it is disinformation.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

As it seems, the new engines are too big for the 737 design. Boeing should consider making a quad out of it. Four small engines should fit easily underneath the wings.
Anyway, the 737 Max name is mud now.
Boeing should rename it to the 707 Max.
