    Since OP, the lazy bastard, couldn't be assed to post this intel and had to be a clickbaiting motherfucker

    "Aug 30 (Reuters) - The U.S. Army has temporarily grounded its fleet of about 400 Chinook helicopters due to a risk of engine fires, a spokeswoman told Reuters on Tuesday.

    Planemaker Boeing Co (BA.N) makes the heavy-lift Chinook helicopters that supports disaster relief operations and medical evacuation. It is used by international defense forces including those of Italy, South Korea and Canada.

    "The Army has identified the root cause of fuel leaks that caused a small number of engine fires among an isolated number of H-47 helicopters, and is implementing corrective measures to resolve this issue," U.S. Army spokeswoman Cynthia O. Smith said.

    While no deaths or injuries occurred, the grounding was carried "out of an abundance of caution" until those corrective actions are complete, Smith added.

    The grounding, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, was targeted at certain models with engines manufactured by Honeywell International Inc (HON.O), according to the report. https://on.wsj.com/3R1bP7m

    Boeing declined to comment and referred questions to the Army. Honeywell did not immediately respond to requests for comment."

      It’s a literal nothing burger.
      This kind of thing happens, and grounding the fleet to do an inspection for overlimit conditions that represent a threat to safety of flight is reasonable and prudent. This will affect readiness for each aircraft by 12 hours, max.
      Shit, all the F-18s were down for a CAD manufacturing issue like a month ago, and we got it handled.

    Why does Boeing suck so fucking bad now, lads? They're fucking up everywhere from civilian aviation to spaceflight to military hardware.
    Have they just gotten complacent?

      Because shareholders only care about how much you'll spend on buybacks and dividends, not whether the shit you sell is any good.

        >Because shareholders only care about how much you'll spend on buybacks and dividends, not whether the shit you sell is any good.
        For a board to spend money on dividends and buybacks they must earn it somewhere or borrow it and if they borrow it the share value will fall proportional to the cost of the debt. It is always best to hold stocks from companies that make good product with demand weak competition and good margins. The fact is a company as damaged by jack Welch retarded GE cult members like Boeing could very readily be squashed by a rival that was competent in south Korea, Poland etc etc. Former GE managers who followed Jack Welshes garbage going into companies like Boeing did massive massive damage. Yes they need decent products. Borrowing to do share buybacks is over. Cheap money is over.

      The joke inside Boeing is that McDonnel Douglas bought Boeing with Boeing's money.
      Boeing was an engineering company first.
      McDonnel was a marketing / sales company that happened to engineer things.
      Over the last 10 years there's been a huge culture shift inside Boeing.
      And it's going to get worse.
      t. Seattle anon with multiple good friends inside Boeing, all of which are retiring before 12/31/2022.
