What has also proven to me, in addition to the info on the New Fraud, Same as the Old Fraud Page, that the same quid pro quo fraud negating quality and safety requirements is still engaged in today by Boeing and FAA Management, is the news of FAA Management continuing to delegate their oversight responsibilities to unreformed and corrupt Boeing Management.
The results of this fraudulently gotten delegation has been in the news of late, with Will Jordan's excellent article about corrupt Boeing Management immediately abusing that delegation as soon as they got it.
They pressured the assigned FAA designees on certification projects to buy off designs that weren't as safe as required, and bypassed them if they refused to do so.
An embarrassing case study for Boeing in their constant efforts to subvert the integrity of their certification and production processes is the 787 battery fire debacle. Boeing was delegated too much certification responsibility on the new program, and then Boeing immediately delegated that wrongly gotten delegation to suppliers, who delegated part of that responsibility to sub-tier suppliers.
Whether that responsibility for certification responsibility for the battery system was officially delegated or not does not matter. Boeing's extremely lax oversight over the whole process effectively resulted in those suppliers self-certifying the battery and the charging system because no real, independent system of oversight over the design and testing process existed because Boeing subverted that oversight to save money and reduce the flow time of the project.
It's the same everywhere you look in corrupt Boeing Management: "How can we cut corners to cut costs and flow times," "how can we illegally bypass required processes the customer won't notice to make the next quarter's promised numbers," "Joe is becoming a problem by not being flexible enough on requirements to sign off on the project so we can get this project back on schedule and under cost--let's reassign him, find a reason to fire him, or go around him to meet those targets and get our bonuses."
Because of Boeing's undeserved delegation by their FAA, at least two plane loads of people narrowly escaped death. Unfortunately, that means nothing to wholly corrupt Boeing Management, whose similar fraud has resulted in at least 750 deaths so far. You have to go back to the heyday of the Mafia to find a more callous to the deaths they have caused management of an organization in American history.
Will Jordan's excellent article puts a spotlight on the continuing fraud going on in all of Boeing's improperly delegated responsibilities, from quality assurance to certification of designs to certification of the airworthiness of each largely uninspected and defect riddled Boeing plane.
Every delegation by the FAA to Boeing has been improperly gotten thanks to the quid pro quo revolving door hiring by Boeing of key FAA Management over the decades. And every one of those undeserved delegations has immediately been illegally subverted to the extent criminally possible to reduce production and certification flow times and costs.
Considering this, it is long past time that all of Boeing's delegations be immediately cancelled and Boeing beginning again on a long, long road to actually earning those delegations before they are given to them. This will require the hiring of several thousand new uncorrupted FAA employees to do all inspections at Boeing and its similarly corrupted and unoverseen supplier base, as well as all design oversight functions.
This must be done immediately no matter how much and how long it disrupts production at Boeing. If done, Boeing may actually have a shot at building more than the unsafe and defect riddled garbage they currently almost build in their next 100 years, as well as have a shot of surviving as a company for the next 100 years.
