The head of Boeing's 737 Max program has resigned following the Alaska Airlines door incident
ยท Feb 21, 2024 ยท

Ed Clark, the leader of Boeing's 737 Max team, is being replaced after the disastrous Alaska Airlines flight where the door fell off mid-flight.

Yeah, that happened last month.

From CNBC:

Katie Ringgold will step in as vice president and general manager of the 737 program and the company's Renton, Washington, site, Deal said.

Ringgold served in the Air Force and has worked in the company for more than a decade.

'I am announcing several leadership changes as we continue driving BCA's enhanced focus on ensuring that every airplane we deliver meets or exceeds all quality and safety requirements. Our customers demand, and deserve, nothing less,' Deal said.

Boeing named Elizabeth Lund to a newly created position of senior vice president of quality for the commercial airplane unit, Deal said in the note. Lund will continue to report to him, it added. The leadership changes are effective immediately.

'Ed departs with my, and our, deepest gratitude for his many significant contributions over nearly 18 years of dedicated service to Boeing,' he added.

So, it looks like Boeing is offering up a sacrificial lamb for the Alaska Airlines debacle.

However, nothing in this story seems to indicate that they are addressing any of the other DE-f-I-ciencies in their companies.

We also know that the 737 Max isn't the only Boeing aircraft with problems.

It seems like Boeing has problems all over. I'd really like to know why!
