    Edsel perhaps?

    Anyone take a chance and flown on this thing yet? Ethiopian 787 caught fire in Heathrow today. Boeing shares dropped 5% with the news.

    Just had one fly over my house yesterday. I can't say that I'd want to fly on one even though they're finished here in WA. In fact, I won't fly on one.

    Boeing is often in the news here and some of the discussions by former company employees and engineers are quite critical of the way the plane was designed and built. With so many of the parts and pieces being built all over the world, it becomes a quality-control nightmare to keep tabs on all of it.
