Updated--Read My Comments to the FAA on the Proposed Policy Change that Would Allow the 787 to be Less Safe in Lightning Strikes Than is Currently Required if Special Conditions/Exemptions Boeing has Asked for are Granted
Read my comments to the FAA on the proposed policy change that would allow the 787 to be less safe in lightning strikes than is currently required if special conditions/exemptions Boeing has asked for are granted by clicking on this link.
I think you will find I have been as "brutally honest" as usual in these comments to the FAA.
Update--I received a response today (2/17/08) from Victor Wicklund, Manager, Propulsion & Mechanical Systems, ANM-112, FAA Transport Standards Staff, confirming receipt of my comments (Mr. Wicklund, who is handling comments on the proposed policy change, was out of the office from the day before I submitted my comments until today, so he couldn't confirm until now).
Now we await their response.
A comment on this blog entry from GFS:
Keep fighting the good fight Gerald! I do believe that some justice will break free soon and some of the problems will be addressed and truly solved. Those who are culpable for the crap and corruption will receive their just rewards, at last.
The public deserves much better than they are getting from Boeing and their apparent co-conspirators in certain government agencies. I am getting increasing numbers of comments from readers of my blogs, regarding concerns about the Boeing Company. It is proving quite interesting. I do believe there will be some more whistleblowers coming forward.
True, true justice has been a long time coming. First, the corrupt retaliated against me for doing the right and ethical thing in opposing their corruption. Next, those that are the true RICO-esque white collar criminals should indeed answer for their corruption that has cost many lives. It is beyond belief that they are so arrogant in their corruption that they seek to take even more innocent lives via their corruption in this proposed policy change. When did the very lives of innocent women, children, men, and military personnel become less important to these few but very corrupt Boeing and government agency managers' greed to have ever more pay and possessions than they are already overpaid? True, this is not the first time some very bad people have sold other people's safety and national security away for a few extra dollars in their pocketbooks, but that doesn't make it remotely acceptable by far. How did the rotten to the core "Boeing Management apple" fall so far from the "ethical tree?" Perhaps one day we will find out, however, as you stated fair justice must be meted out against these white collar criminals for their crimes. Just because they ensured an unfair "investigation" and trial against me does not mean we should also deny them due process as well. That's just one of myriad things that make almost anyone better than them.
