Boeing's latest option -- Sunroofs

Last week an American Airlines plane flying from Miami to Boston experienced a decompression and a hole ripped open in the skin of the airplane above the forward door.  Fortunately there were no injuries and the plane returned to Miami without any further incident.

This is the second of two incidents recently and Boeing recently issued a bulletin about structual fatigue for certain models of 757s.  

Nonetheless, it's not every day you get to see a picture and since one popped up on the internetz, i wanted to share.
