RE: Check does not resolves others issues



We do need to think differently for the future. Maybe its time to re-think the designs used? Is there a better way? AO-40 was a good bird, but a lot of things went wrong that could have been caught and maybe she would still be in use, but that's the past. Our resources grow with every passing day and we have good people working these birds up. I think more involvement and new ideas will show us the way to the future. Lets take note of the past, learn, and move forward. On with the plan, on with Eagle.
