  1. The data set used in this example consists of sets of measurements for ten aircraft. Data for five of the aricraft are contained in the variable failure-times in the file aircraft.lsp. The calculations of this section used the data for the second aricraft. Examine the data for the remaining four aircraft.
  2. Use maximum likelihood estimation to fit a Weibull model to the data used in this section.
