    If you had watched the documentary first before you commented you wouldn't need to ask.

    The documentary investigation is about critical component manufacturing done outside type spec - machined manually instead of on a CNC - which caused out of spec critical cabin components to be forced into place in final assembly, causing stress and resulting corrosion many years before expected.

    Watch the documentary before jumping to conclusions.

    The Wikipedia entry tracks type crash history. Several of those are mentioned in the documentary, I checked out the reported crashes via that link.

    Yes, exactly, SEVERAL as in SOME as in NOT ALL, which is exactly my point.

    When you post this:

    without explanation of there is what and expecting people to sort it out themselves, which given the state of today's society, is very unwise, as it will create further misinformation among the undedicated people in the subject matter.
    A post which followed afterwards is a perfect example:

    This was the point of my angry post. If you would have posted that "some of those 16 accidents were the cause of negligence from the Boeing side" I would be tip top.
    But instead, again, you presented the info, expecting the people to sort the ropes themselves, which most will not, but will go spreading lies anyway.

    However in this case it does.
    And there's a big chance you will fly on 737 if you are traveling on short/medium route ;)
