    Boeing has enjoyed an excellent reputation. But, a true leader takes responsibility for their company, their products, and actions whether they have positive or negative outcomes. Boeing and the FAA had a responsibility to make sure pilots were aware of any critical pieces of information they needed to operate a plane with their engines - any kind of engine they produce whether for the public or the military.

    Between 2010 and 2019, one person died in an accident on a U.S. passenger airline. This was the person killed on a Southwest flight in 2018, when an engine exploded and the debris hit her window. Three other people died in a crash at S. F. International Airport in 2013, when a captain flying for the Korean carrier Asiana badly misjudged a landing. This is truly remarkable when you look at the millions of people who fly every year, and speaks to the skills of pilots and plane manufacturers. It is remarkable when you consider at least 100 people die every day in the U.S. in car accidents.
