Last Call: Parking it like it’s a Bimmer

Ya think this pilot drives a bimmer? He sure  parks like he does.

Boeing 737 MAXs have been grounded for some time. Typically airports are not designed to store planes, so this is an issue because planes are kind of big. TUI Airways had to use the employee parking lot to store their MAXs until the planes are allowed to fly again.

This is a serious issue. From The Los Angeles Times:

Crews have sealed 34 Southwest Airlines Co. jets against the Mojave Desert’s sun, wind and sand, as well as insects and birds that can creep into wheel wells and engine air inlets. Southwest declined to discuss the expense, but one industry veteran said such sojourns run about $2,000 a month for each plane — a small but critical cost amid Boeing’s many looming financial penalties.
