Surely he started a thread in GDF forum already right ? Because that’s what he does when engines have problems, right ?

I'm guessing they are all junk. This is the stand the HEAD Chear Leader would take on the Poo side, even though Poo out sells Cat 15 - 1.

So we are up to 100% failure rate on the Cat 800's then? That has to be all they sold. This isn't good.
