American B752 near Miami on Oct 26th 2010.

SWA 737 near WV around July 2010.

All three are different areas around the top of the fuselage, and the first two seem to happen in what looks like pre-determined patterns between ribs and stringers, almost a perfect "cut out" instead of a tear.

Same fuselage barrel right?

Because imagine if the FAA, just play a long because this is made up, but that older 757s and 737s need to be inspected or grounded immediately. That would cripple the industry.

Looks like aircraft was put into service in 1996. There are just a few Boeings out there that are older. I don't have how many cycles yet.

You kidding me? They probably hopped out of the airplane and kicked some poor innocent kittens, then went and bought another 737 rating.


jk Great job!!
