This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report, This corruption at Boeing bodes ill for the 787 program, I believe. Customers should hope their 787s are not damaged at Boeing and have to be repaired and "inspected" by these Boeing personnel:
I wrote bad cures up on the PSD repairs I inspected, even after consulting with (name), the Auburn QA Lead that oversaw the inspectors that worked with (name), composite repair mechanic, whose work I was inspecting on NCR (number), I believe. (The Auburn QA Lead) said that his inspectors had stopped writing similar bad cures up at the Auburn Site, as the disposition of the tags always came back "structurally and functionally acceptable" to engineering. I knew that that didn’t absolve QA from having to write up the tags, as "structurally and functionally acceptable" meant it was still a discrepant part, and the only organization that could allow such products to be used, by "structurally and functionally acceptable" dispositions, was Engineering. I ignored his ignorant or careless method and always wrote bad cures up at PSD, before the composite repair technicians bypassed me, because, as I stated earlier, it was always my ethic to get discrepant items fixed, or documented, as required, once they came to my attention.
