cwatters, fizz,

Exactly...

As noted in the voluminous amount of article(s), most of these issues were not reported. The 150 batteries, the panels, and who knows what else...we only find out in small controlled batches of disconnected information. I cant really believe that there have been 150 batteries returned for a single issue with the battery alone. There arent that many aircraft flying, and only what, 16 batteries per ac...

The articles note that everyone is deliberately vague, and in all cases, wont identify the aircraft the issue was found on.

Like many other directives, inspections will be ordered on all aircraft, so you may see many other aircraft with these issues, once people start looking.
