Evans for a couple of months.
Lets you might boy he -- -- noted airline analysts he's the president.
CEO of his own firm Mike thanks so much for joining us on short notice what is your take obviously we do not know for certain whether this was.
A battery issue with this particular 787 what -- think.
Well we don't know yet it the other pictures don't show -- thing.
Regarding a battery so fires to start -- any airplane and any time it's just unfortunate.
It is here I would suspect this is probably unrelated to the battery issue and could.
-- why don't you think if there's a link.
Because we had Tom Sullivan our colleagues here Fox Business say -- it was only maritime be for a battery issue resurfaced.
I don't buy that -- that the comment and that that is they an opinion.
But I don't I don't necessarily buy -- -- -- okay.
That -- the real reality series the very complex piece of machinery and if they don't have battery hey baby we are back to start -- one over again here so.
But I don't think it will be I think we're gonna find something else probably the complex -- -- machinery we shouldn't jump to any thing right now but I'd be careful Obama won the next several minutes probably anyone.
Well Mike it's Adam Shapiro I have a question for you did they ever determine what caused those initial fires with the lithium ion batteries in the first place aboard those four there with a four different incidents they ever caught have a cause.
And I don't think -- did.
I think what it basically was was this photo of a walk in the battery but I saw pictures of the batteries.
Also you -- and it they couldn't figure out why but we know they were doing it.
But I think it says they expect piece of it again but we don't know why is it can happen again I would agree with that.
Are watching shares of Boeing sell off sharply Mike is it's an over reaction.
I would think so right now is keep in mind they have over -- -- and airplanes on order -- -- 787.
In the 787 built by Boeing but it is not following they have all of a wide product line there's just one product.
But this is the future of the airline is it not this kind of -- aircraft with such reliance on electrical systems and batteries like the one this one is using.
All they are absolutely going forward composites.
Electronics like this airplane electorate -- hydraulic and many areas is a lot of a lot of steps forward with this airplane that will dictate how -- planes are designed in the future.
All right Mike -- so did it -- -- big picture you've got Boeing and Airbus.
The -- manufactures for the entire world though so.
Put this in perspective in terms of Boeing's bottom line business I mean there aircraft is still hotly into -- Absolutely but there are things coming up we have bombarding its candidate -- -- a competing product to.
It's going to be very very competitive we have Chinese manufacturers with some put them -- line.
-- -- they they they can't rest on their laurels but overall they're bear market size or market penetration made Airbus.
They're not all that vulnerable but they can't rest on their laurels.
Art like -- once again thank you so much for joining us this afternoon -- your expertise on the airline.
Industry and to our viewers as soon as we hear anything more on what's going on this latest 787.
