Boeing 757 Loses Nose Wheel Before Takeoff At Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

The nose wheel of a Boeing 757 airplane fell off right before takeoff at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. This incident follows a video showing another Boeing plane’s engine on fire in the air. And, of course, there is the now-infamous video and picture of the “door plug” that flew off of a Boeing 737 Max-9 at 16,000 feet in the air. Boeing has called an internal “emergency” over the apparent quality control issues. Luckily, no one has been hurt after these well-publicized instances of mechanical issues with Boeing aircraft. However, there will most certainly be a financial impact due to the grounding of the Max-9 and also the damage to Boeing’s brand reputation.
