    Accident to boost Boeing

    1024. Accident to boost Boeing (6/10/2018)

    Trump imposes tariffs of 25% for steel and 10% for aluminium On imports from allies. That's obviously a part of his plan to boost US automobile and air plane industry.
    It needs a lot of steel to manufacture a car and a lot of aluminium for a plane.

    The next step he will do is to impose high tariff on imported car to push up domestic auto industry. What about the air plane?

    I noticed the following air incidents.

    On 4/17,
    Southwest Airlines emergency landing: Banking executive killed after being sucked out of window at 32,000ft

    The jet's CFM56-7B engines were made by CFM International, jointly owned by General Electric and Safran Aircraft Engines of France.
    I think that's a demonstration to other countries how to create an air incident if they want to justify a change in their plane supplier.

    China plane makes emergency landing after window cracks

    The aircraft was an Airbus A321, according to plane tracking website FlightAware.

    In April, a woman died after being partially sucked out of a Southwest Airlines flight headed to Dallas from New York when a porthole was shattered mid-flight.
    These two incidents took place in two weeks at the time when US and China had trade negotiation. Planes are all from Airbus. The incident style are all similar to Southwest airline style.

    We know there are only two main airplane manufacturer in the world - Boeing and Airbus. If Trump want to make Boeing great, he has to bite a big chunk from Airbus. I hope there will be no blood air accident in coming trade negotiation with other countries.

    Boeing execs are probably invested in Airbus and vice-versa. Big industry never loses.
