*SUP= Suspected Unapproved Parts
Even the seemingly definitive tagline, "The Happiest Place on Earth" is conditional, once we swap the Mickey Mouse ears for our thinking caps.
The once-familiar sounds of doors clanging shut did not make me cringe or dredge up suppressed memories. Instead, they had the curious effect of bringing me a sense of peace. Integrating a difficult past into a present inextricably intertwined with a single impulsive action committed long ago can be hard. Many people that have been to prison allow their imprisonment to become their identity; you become known as a felon when convicted. Yet the process of reintegration after a long stretch of incarceration often means reconciling the two. And it was this reconciliation that took place during my recent trip to Alcatraz.
The FAA whistleblower, Charles Shi, has been exposing the safety threat concerning counterfeit safety parts made by a Chinese supplier-NHJ and knowingly installed by Moog Aircraft on some 500 Boeing planes, mainly B737 and B777.
Boeing had a duty to assure that its aircrafts were reasonably safe for the passengers flying therein, whose safety and lives are at risk.
An extraordinary Boeing plane safety threat has been exposed. The threat was brought by a verified Chinese counterfeiter who even violated basic aviation quality norms.
A letter by this FAA whistleblower was sent to both Presidents of U.S. and China appealing for action of law enforcement and removal of counterfeit safety parts from Boeing planes.
This protected and lawful whistleblower, Charles Shi, has been exposing "An Unprecedented Boeing Aircraft Safety Threat Not Removed by Massive Cover-Up."
It is extremely troubling that FAA has so far not taken enforcement action upon massive Chinese counterfeit safety parts on Boeing planes. Tombstone mentality is still in play!
Odessa, TX—home to the Permian Basin, one of the most prolific oil fields in the US. What else is prolific here? Human trafficking, drugs, and violence. At the time, the the violent crime statistics against women were #4 IN THE COUNTRY, according to the local Sheriff's Department!
This is outrageous and criminal in nature! Thanks to the whistle blower. I hope FAA is forced to act and extend investigations to other major suppliers and their supply chains.
