Nobody deserves death, that's precisely why murder is a crime. So you think someone like Anders with 76 murders under his belt should be allowed to live?? Think about what you wrote there.

With the 787 it was all about the business school fad of the time of “risk sharing partners” which in Boeing’s case resulted in “cost multiplying partners” that had to be bought out and taken over to get under control and led to a multi year delay.

There is quite a bit of exhaust pipe between the outside and the APU proper.

Yes, as any asset you write off over time - or even at once. Defining production cost as an asset is the way how "deferred production cost" works its magic in the books.
