737 Wing Issue

l flew 3 times before the accident and it's possible that by making the wing to stiff, it tranferred the load more toward the inner part of the wing , add the high gusting wind and it couldn't handle the load.
this model is under reconstruction and may fly again
I agree, some of the load may have been transferred to the inner part. As I surmised earlier, if that entire pylon was not securely glued to the wing, that area of the wing would be the first to break. There is very little foam "meat" there. No, the pylon would not leave the wing, as the carbon rod keeps it there, unless the laminated ply breaks in that area, of course.

When you rebuild, just be sure and glue that baby into the wing (both of them). Just my $0.02

Looking forward to see that beautiful airliner fly again!
