“It’s not really a Boeing issue. It’s an old plane,” Rosenberg said on “Fox News Live.” “The tire will be replaced. A United Airlines mechanic or mechanic will replace the tire. Something went wrong. A recent tire change or repair and we can say it came off. It’s actually a Boeing It’s not a problem.”

On Friday, a second United Airlines plane touched down in Medford, Oregon. External panel missing. The Boeing 737-800 was carrying 139 passengers and six crew members.

Rosenberg said the photos of the missing panels do not indicate “a problem with Boeing.” “To me, it looks like a maintenance issue with United Airlines,” he explained.

“It was a failure of Boeing’s internal policies and procedures. And obviously, if you look at the long history leading up to it and after, it was, in my view, endemic within Boeing, and it became a pandemic. I’m doing it.”

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) stated in its preliminary investigation report: 4 keys bolt The door plug was missing and has not been recovered.

“They don’t want to put airlines out of business. They don’t want to put airlines out of business with procedures and safety procedures. But they are watchdogs, and in my view they have failed in one of their primary objectives. “It’s about aircraft safety,” the aviation expert explained.


He added that the flying public can trust that air travel is safe.

“The FAA will make the right decision, and I hope Boeing will make the right decision. And only time will tell.”
