Nigel..."Xenia..."  been there...lovely place

What would concern me about propulsion is the fact that these are errors (which are I think systemic) of not being able to understand a process and design out the errors.  

I've never read (that doesnt mean it doesnt exist I have just never read it) that a really good understanding of what happened on AO40 exist...but what I have read is that it is a lot like the gear pins...
