(09/06/2016)  http://www.latimes.com/opinion/readersreact/la-ol-le-boeing-20160908-snap-story.html Refers to article on Boeing bonuses on 09/02/2016 at:  http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-na-boeing-bonuses/ Excerpt in To the editor: The American taxpayers paid billions of dollars for a missile defense system that essentially doesn’t work, and then gave Boeing billions in bonuses.  This is why I believe people vote for someone such as Donald Trump — not because he has any idea what he’s talking about, which he doesn’t; not because he tells the truth, which he apparently can’t; not because he’s the best one for the job, which he isn’t — but because they are so tired of this kind of corruption and ineptitude that they just say “screw it.”   Such is the delicate architecture of history.  --Bart Braverman, Los Angeles Excerpt in To the editor: …My suggestions: Pay to hire technical managers who understand what they are purchasing, change the law so no one can leave the government and go to work for a contractor for seven or more years, and keep the bidding/purchasing process as simple as possible.  --Kay Hammer, Venice http://www.latimes.com/opinion/readersreact/la-ol-le-boeing-20160908-snap-story.html A flawed missile defense system generates $2 billion in bonuses for Boeing.

Both focused on achieving cost and schedule goals to the detriment of minimum quality and safety imperatives….” Boeing-FAA working together http://www.thelastboeinginspector.com/the-boeing-faa-working-together-fraud-negating-boeing-airplane-quality.html Excerpt: This is the main starting page for this website. It forms an outline of the central Boeing and FAA fraud that my related blog and many of my web pages address in further detail. First, I will list the important facts about this fraud and then expand upon them below. Boeing - FAA working together fraud negating Boeing airplane quality Excerpt: 6. Because this fraud by Boeing and the FAA is so rampant and has negated in large part the minimum required levels of the quality and safety of Boeing airplanes, each Boeing airplane delivers with hundreds or even thousands of defects. 7. Because those defects were allowed to deliver on Boeing airplanes by certifying on the paperwork that the required minimum levels of inspection were done when they actually weren't, the exact number and severity of defects on each individual Boeing airplane is unknown, making the risk to passengers and crew on each airplane unknowable, but massively greater than required. There is therefore no way to know if you are on a Boeing airplane made unsafe because of this fraud until it ultimately crashes.   8. Because of this fraud enterprise-wide at Boeing, hundreds of people have died in airplane crashes, and more will continue to die until the fraud is ended. http://www.thelastboeinginspector.com/the-boeing-faa-working-together-fraud-negating-boeing-airplane-quality.html Troubling Facts about Boeing’s Culture of Fraud http://www.thelastboeinginspector.com/troubling-facts-about-boeings-culture-of-fraud.html Boeing’s 100 year heritage of building something worse than required http://www.thelastboeinginspector.com/boeings-100-year-heritage-of-building-something-worse-than-required.html Other Boeing Fraud http://www.thelastboeinginspector.com/other-boeing-fraud.html M, N, O New York Times:   Boeing Faces Questions on Quality.  By Lawrence M.

In October, she received nine months in prison for the illegal job talks.  Darleen Druyun admitted she helped Boeing.  In court documents released at that earlier hearing, Druyun said she unfairly favored Boeing in several weapons-program competitions out of gratitude for the company hiring her daughter and son-in-law.  She added that she gave Boeing what she considered a "parting gift" before leaving the Air Force: a higher-than-deserved price for its tankers.  The conflict-of-interest revelations, along with concerns over the cost of and need for the planes, have grounded a once-promising program for Boeing. http://old.seattletimes.com/html/businesstechnology/2002091816_webboeing16.html Boeing’s sales dip as company says tought cost cutting will continue.

By Ryan Alexander (06/03/2015) Excerpt:  Have you heard of the Export-Import Bank? It’s little-known yet high on the list of special-interest priorities these days.  Created in 1934, this government agency loans money to foreign buyers of American products and gives U.S. exporters loan guarantees. It also provides financing for ventures that supposedly can’t get private backing.  Backers of the bank claim that it supports U.S. jobs. In reality, it’s a favor factory for politically well-connected corporations trolling for handouts.  Indeed, the bank is a poster child for special interest favoritism.  Nearly two-thirds of total assistance Ex-Im provided in 2013 went to just 10 international conglomerates — including General Electric, Caterpillar, and especially Boeing. The aviation company reaped more than 30 percent of the benefits on its own. http://www.taxpayer.net/media-center/article/no-taxpayer-dollars-for-the-bank-of-boeing W War History:  Old Boeing Plant has Some Secrets from World War Two.  By George Winston (11/20/2015) https://www.warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/old-boeing-plant-secrets-world-war-two.html Washington Post:    Long Fall for Pentagon Star.  Druyun Doled Out Favors by the Millions.  By Renae Merle (11/14/2004) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A48241-2004Nov13.html Boeing Parts and Rules Bent, Whistle-Blowers Say.  By Florence Graves/Sara Kehaulani Goo (04/17/2006) http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/04/16/AR2006041600803.html Wikipedia Boeing 747 hull losses (Wikipedia) Excerpt:  As of January 2017, a total of 61 Boeing 747 aircraft, or just under 4% of the total number of 747s built, first flown commercially in 1970, have been involved in accidents and incidents resulting in a hull loss, meaning that the aircraft has either been destroyed or has been damaged beyond economical repair.[5] Of the 61 Boeing 747 aircraft losses, 32 resulted in no loss of life; in one, a hostage was murdered; and in one, a terrorist died.[5] Some of the aircraft that were declared damaged beyond economical repair were older 747s that sustained relatively minor damage. Had these planes been newer it would have been economically viable to repair them, although with the 747's increasing obsolescence this is becoming less common.[6][7] 747s have been involved in accidents resulting in the highest death toll of any aviation accident, the highest death toll of any single airplane accident and the highest death toll of a mid-air collision, although, as with most airliner accidents, the roots of causation in these incidents involved a confluence of multiple factors which rarely could be ascribed to flaws with the 747's design or its flying characteristics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_747_hull_losses Darleen Druyun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darleen_Druyun
