This quote is also from my first report to the FAA local MIDO office, when I was naive and chose not to believe all those press reports about the FAA being the "handmaiden of the aviation industry" and a "tombstone agency." This quote is from the section of my report noted in the first quote below that I deleted to make that quote shorter and I stated that I may quote later. This quote from that section details my history as an inspector at Boeing, and some of the other corrupt Boeing QA supervisors I've worked for over the years:
Shortly thereafter, (my QA supervisor) left PSD. (My QA director) came out to 747 Struts where I was doing a shakedown and he spoke to me (I was shocked when he showed up next to me and spoke to me, as he had never done that before). He said that he hoped all my concerns were resolved now that (my QA supervisor) had gone. He said that the reason (my QA supervisor) left was not because of our meeting. (My QA director) left. I found out later that (my QA supervisor) was promoted to head of Quality for the Delta IV Program. I also was told him and (my QA director) were old friends, and that (my QA supervisor) was just biding his time at PSD, with (my QA director’s) help, until his new job opened up.
Anyway, (my QA supervisor's) ethics fit in perfectly with the unwritten BCAG Quality System. So did all of my QA Supervisor’s ethics I’ve ever had--those I’ve mentioned, and (name), and (name). The only one I can’t say fits is (name). I’ve never had a problem with him when I attempted to follow the FAA-approved BCAG Quality Manual, maybe because he used to be the Manual administrator, and may be the only QA Supervisor that actually believed in it. He did know about the problem with us not..., and did nothing about it, but at least he acknowledged in a crew meeting once that he knew some inspectors had a problem with it. That is more than any other QA Supervisor or Director at PSD has ever done about it.
