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:
When I was new at PSD, and assigned to the strut area with (name), who had been the lone inspector in the area prior to my arrival, I saw the volume of inspections that he had handled alone just before I was assigned there. I was amazed he had supported all of the inspection activity there alone. I couldn’t see how he inspected all of those jobs per the drawing in the time he had. I noticed I was much slower than him. I inspected the jobs per the drawing, as was my usual custom. I rarely saw him refer to the drawings. I asked him how he was so fast, and inquired whether or not he would inspect the installations per the drawings before buying them. He told me, "I only look at the drawings when something doesn’t look right." At least then I knew why he was so efficient.
