    737 was designed around turbojet engines, adapting it to high-bypass turbofans has always been an issue, they don't have the ground clearance.
    Hence the flattened "D" on the cowls, max has the engines lifted higher and forward to make room.

    Boeing have been flogging the airframe design well past its useful life; they need another failed defence contract to pay for developing another civilian airframe: like the 707 and 747 were
    In the late 80's I flew Gatwick to Corfu in a Dan Air 707, it creaked all the time and was unable to land at Corfu due to light mist by the airport so we were rerouted to Athens for the day. Personally I've never been a fan of Boeing.

    Important to whom? The BBC who feel it worth reporting or the Olympians who's hard-won medals are incorrect?
