Follow-Up On Missing Wing

A quick follow-up on yesterday’s story about the missing wing found on the runway in Jakarta:  turns out it wasn’t yours.  It belongs to budget carrier Lion Air, which isn’t a particularly good sign.  On the plus side, they’ve grounded the MD-90 that has the missing piece of wing.

  1. It wasn’t a piece of wing at all. It was a small piece of engine cower. Read your trade papers. Don’t believe the press at first sight.

  2. Make that engine COVER. Don’t believe a commentator at first sight either…
