RE: Leahy: Boeing 787 Single Barrels "A Bridge To Far"

As is normally the case when something that has been done one way for so long gets done a very different way there are always issues. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say and maybe in 20 years we might actually see who is really correct. Boeing is taking a lot of risks and hopefully with that risk comes r...

It doesn't matter how many flights you fly or where, each take off / flight / landing has the same probability as any other.

If you fly for as many years as they have and only have as few accidents as they have then it is more than luck.
