People & Power– On a Wing and a prayer


This is about the 737-NG; the plane that Southwest is having problems with.

Air travel is a question of trust.We trust the science which says that air pressure over the leading edge of a wing can support a giant passenger plane across thousands of miles of sky.

We trust that the design which shapes the plane matches the needs of this mysterious science.

We trust that the aircraft’s manufacturer follows this meticulous design to the very letter.

And we trust that the official regulatory agencies have fulfilled their side of the bargain by monitoring and policing every step of that process – from drawing board to airport runway.
