    Boeing 737 ........ what else can I add? If I am not mistaken, the operation of the Boeing 737 MAX of the eighth and ninth modifications is prohibited in Russia. Maybe it's time to extend this progressive initiative to the entire line of 737?
    Usually I am not a supporter of such events, but in this case the initiative is good and more than justified.
