Not much was said about the net effect of the whole Covid experience. What is going on in that shop today? Are they staying busy? The life of this shop parallels the health of the whole industry. Please update!

$32 million jet engines with marvelous engineering, paired with $12/hr software labor. That's a crime.

Mind boggling, Some one came up with an idea (jet engine) oops, I think it was the Germans in WW2. Engineers draw up the designs and blueprints for Thousands of parts !
Master technicians build those parts. Months of rigorous testing. That testing includes numerous redundancy protocols for safety, so you can feel safe when you fly.
But still when I watch this video, I wonder what if one of these workers has a hangover or just broke-up with somebody !

Maybe a dumb question but if the engine is damaged how do you get the whole plane to Atlanta? Obviously can't fly it there?

I wonder if they ever forget and leave a crescent wrench or lunch box in one of those engines.

Wait, engines are NOT made by the plane brand. Boeing and Airbus don't make their own engines. Aren't engines under a manufacturer's warranty or is it verrry short (like just one year)?

Not one of their engines have left one of their planes stranded in the air.
