One of the things that has bothered people in Seattle is that not one of the members of the Boeing board of directors is from Seattle, another sign of how much was changed when Boeing bought McDonnell Douglas in 1997. Now the board is being challenged for its lack of oversight on safety issues for the 737-MAX, and the fact that CEO Dennis Muilenburg is also board chair. It used to be said that Boeing was run by engineers and lawyers, the former insisting on redundancy and safety and the latter warning (as lawyers do) about dire consequences if things went wrong with planes. This could get ugly, but likely Boeing is simply too big to fail.
