Maintenance neglect - as in Alaska's broken jackscrew of flt 261?

Don’t discount a massive side load on landing.

My guess is owners will dump airframe onto the open market. Fixed and ends up outside of North America. Engines ?????

The outcome of the NTSB investigation likely will be poor maintenance.
