Ah, ok, there is a thread. I DID search for one before I made mine, not sure how I missed this one. Oh, ok, I see now, I was searching for "Boeing" and that is not in this thread's title.

BTW, Airbus had similar problems not too long ago.  Due to 'corrupted data' (more likely a programming error if you ask me) 3 Airbus airliners behaved extremely erratically, injuring a lot of people, some severely.

I stopped in the very late eighties unless absolutely necessary..

I'm going to need to merge this one with the other thread..

Just saw the other thread now that you bumped it, thanks.

Yeah, well, I will not fly on those things FOR ANY REASON.

I only mentioned this on account of having a vivid dream of being with a young child on a plane full of Asians which was being brought down over the ocean. The last thing to be seen was some kind of warship. I read the daily news on waking and there was this airline crash. I realize thats probably the least credible sort of evidence, but it is not at all unwarranted to be wary of modern super-militaries and their disregard for anything beyond internal hierarchies.

Knowing the difference between military and civilian maintenance programs here in the US has made me a little nervous flying commercial at times. But while it might sound cliche' it's still safer than driving. And don't get me started about MH370. Any former IONite remembers my theory. They barely entered the Indian Ocean, much less Australian airspace. U'tapao.

Thanks for that info @SkyCat I hadn't heard of that Airbus issue.

Hmmm...now that you mention it though, I have noticed quite a few incidents of aircraft encountering turbulence inflight resulting in crew injuries. Guess I might go back and check the acft types. Avherald.com

There was an Air Crash Investigation (series) episode on the Airbus problem on YouTube but it has been deleted, else I would have posted it here. If I find it anywhere else then I will post it.

Nice, thanks

Ok, I found a link to the clip.  This Chinese website still has it:

^ That is one of the incidents (they almost crashed).  It was Qantas Flight 72, on 7 October 2008.

Things haven't been going Lion Air's way lately it seems.  They say "things happen in 3s".  Hiding
