New! Watch the TV News Story that the Local Fox Affiliate Did About My History of Trying to End Boeing/FAA Corruption Below! Plus the Daily Report Quote
Well, it has been almost a year, but I finally got the video of the TV news story my local Fox affiliate (KCPQ "Q13 Fox" Channel 13) did on their 6-12-06 newscast transferred so I could put it on this site.
Check it out. It has great information on the steps I have gone through over the years to get the fraud in Boeing and FAA management stopped that is endangering the public for more profitability for Boeing and cushy industry "quid pro quo" jobs for former FAA Management officials:
Today's Daily Report Quote:
This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report. This section documents the lack of concern by Key Engineers about safety device issues and the fact that budget matters trump safety at Boeing, even in the most obvious safety related areas, such as safety device integrity. I believe this safety device specification issue was partially fixed just months before my termination, some six years after I formally brought it to the attention of the appropriate engineering department. This was well after Boeing corporate management and the FAA had refused to fix it on the multiple occasions I notified them of it. I believe the change that partially fixed this critical problem that allowed untold numbers of defective (insufficient strength) critical safety devices to deliver to BCA customers with the full knowledge of Boeing and the FAA occurred when a new Key Engineer was assigned to the spec. Of course, the hundreds if not many thousands of defective safety devices allowed to deliver on airplanes because of this problem and the rollerstamping quality system in place at Boeing are still flying around, uncorrected. As this is a long section, I am quoting the section sequentially over several days:
It is my humble opinion that safety cable should not be allowed to be used on FAA certificated aircraft without installed safety cable minimum crimp length standards in place where it is used. Please contact the makers of this product (I think (name)) and find out what the minimums should be. If they don’t have such standards that can be distributed throughout the aircraft industry, then ban safety cable until they find out what they should be. It might be wise to have SBs (Service Bulletins) put out to inspect all safety cable installations once standards are agreed upon. After all, they are safety devices that are used on some critical installations. This fatal flaw in standards for safety cable installations needs to be fixed ASAP, in my opinion.
(The spec) Saying "Thou shalt not move the tool" obviously, as I have witnessed, does not work. There must be valid inspection criteria when "evil" (just human) mechanics blaspheme the spec.
