A new suitor for Washington state?
Flatterer. I bet you say that to all the states with huge aerospace industry tax breaks.
There, I fixed it: A United Airlines 787, flying from London to Houston, was diverted to Newark, N.J., because an of a low-oil indicator light.
Wasting no time, Boeing immediately sent out a repair kit to airlines in case the problem occurs on other Dreamliners: black electrician's tape that can placed over the low-oil light.
Careful, careful: The state Department of Transportation has recorded a long history of hard knocks absorbed by the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River, which collapsed after being struck by a truck's oversized load. But it hasn't used that information to prevent truckers from hitting a bridge that the state considers "fracture critical."
Meanwhile, Transportation officials announced that the permanent bridge will be built from Jenga blocks, and truckers will be invited to knock a block out as they pass and see if they can keep the span from collapsing.
