Wheel Flies Off United Flight While Departing LAX

Posted July 9, 2024 by with 6 comments

I know I must sound like a broken record (I think I’ve said this 900000 times), but who in their right mind is getting onto an airplane in a post 2020 world? Between the psychotic Karens, the spitting Karens, the attempted stabbings, the shitting Chihuahuas, the maggots, the pilots on mushrooms, the public indecency, the urinating in the aisles, the naked men (OK, maybe the naked men aren’t all bad), and the fact that Boeing’s planes are literally falling apart into pieces in mid-air, you’d be safer flying to your destination while hanging from a rope attached to a Goodyear blimp. The latest Boeing product to break into pieces in mid-air, today at LAX:

Yes, that is actually me at 1:05. And to the lady at 1:55…girl…good luck.

And if you think this is ever going to stop, think again. Our beloved government just gave Boeing a sweetheart deal so they can keep making billions and murdering people for as long as they want. Yesterday’s news via BBC:

Boeing has agreed to plead guilty to a criminal fraud conspiracy charge after the US found the company violated a deal meant to reform it after two fatal crashes by its 737 Max planes that killed 346 passengers and crew.

The Department of Justice (DoJ) said the plane-maker had also agreed to pay a criminal fine of $243.6m (£190m).

However, the families of the people who died on the flights five years ago have criticised it as a “sweetheart deal” that would allow Boeing to avoid full responsibility for the deaths. One called it an “atrocious abomination”.

The settlement must now be approved by a US judge.

By pleading guilty, Boeing will avoid the spectacle of a criminal trial – something that victims’ families have been pressing for.


Because fuck those dead family members, right? It’s all about protecting the corporate billionaires who own this country.

On a lighter note, it’s yet another excuse to post my favorite airplane meltdown/psychotic brawl video of all time:
