In a matter of days, United will have at least one of every wide-body jet model back in the sky. The Chicago-based carrier is taking a handful of Boeing 767-400ER jets out of long-term storage starting this weekend and into the busy summer travel season.

I remember seeing the 767-400 prototype at the SBAC Farnborough airshow, some decades ago. What always stayed in mi memory was the "EXPERIMENTAL" painted above the L1 entry door!

And I think that (for once) toe early comments here may be a little harsh on Boeing. it is the ENGINE which went "bang" - and the nacelle did *almost* contain the shrapnel! Best of all, everyone lived to tell the tale to the FAA - with 4k HD full-motion video to back up the story!

For once, I'd cut Boeing (a little bit of) slack on this. After all, it was only one engine!
