So ~5% failure rate of a part designed to last the plane's entire lifetime occurs at ~35% of the anticipated lifecycle?

Planes with lower hours will presumably fair better, but this is going to set up a lifetime 's worth of new rigorous inspection schedules for a part expected to last a lifetime-- and presumably there's going to be a lot of looking at batch numbers to find any common variables. Still a mess. I

At least they caught one early, I guess.

That's actually been expected for several years. Aeroflot said in 2015 they didn't need them. It's just surprising it took this long to make it official.
