The Wheel Reports went by the wayside last year, they attempted to bring it back this year because of popular demand but it looks like it has fallen by the wayside again, so I'm inclined to think we have seen the last of them.
Regarding 501 - there's nothing suspicious going, as stated before, they never got the opportunity over the winter to evaluate the engine like they had hoped and going back to last year they have repeatedly stated, "501's return to service is not guaranteed", they will not make any decisions until an assessment is done. One thing that was done, that needed to be done, before anything could be done, was purchasing the engine, so you can check that off the list.
It takes real skill to choke on air, fall up the stairs and trip over nothing. I have those skills.
