    Structural integrity is a significant matter for aerospace engineers. The Air Force is apparently investigating the possibility that Boeing is liable for the structural "defect" in F-15's. Life extension is a critical matter in aerospace and nuclear industries as highly engineered systems approach original design life. By then, one in theory collects sufficient data to allow for continued use. The responsible engineer needs to ask questions, collect evidence and ensure all data are correctly interpreted.

    This report (Airplane Stress Analysis) is historically significant. Our knowledge and understanding has changed dramatically since then, but the concerns are still the same.
