  1. The rate at which this iron birds of the Boeing 737 specie are crashing down from the sky should be a course for concern to the policy makers and stakeholders in the International Aviation stage.

    The crash of Boeing 737-800 in Tehran this week brought the number of crashes to 3 in about a year, with hundreds of lives and dreams cut shot. This led to the grounding of Boeing 737 Max since 2019.

    The airline company says the pilot was one of its most experienced and the aircraft its newest. I think Boeing technology must be and should be looked into. Triple crash in about a year is more than just an accident.
