Makes me wonder how well the planes are maintained...

I flew out of Boston's Logan Airport last weekend. The trip got off to an inauspicious start when I got into an elevator in Terminal B and noticed this "FAIL" certificate posted on the elevator wall. The word "FAIL" staring at me as I made my vertical journey was scary enough, but my anxiety heightened when I realized I was enclosed in this mechanically compromised box on October 21, eight days after the expiration of the 90 Day Temporary Certificate, issued on July 13.
