   Excellent catch Mick.

US Air Force says Boeing has 'severe situation' after trash found on refueling planes

 

Multiple Brand New KC-46 air refueling tanker aircraft, delivered to US Air Force with trash and industrial tools were found in some planes after they were delivered to the Air Force. 

 

One More Example of how the US Crony Capitalism Encourages a Culture that Lacks Discipline for Safety

(CNN)In a blistering attack on Boeing, the Air Force's top acquisition official said the company has a "severe situation" with flawed inspections of its new KC-46 air refueling tanker aircraft, after trash and industrial tools were found in some planes after they were delivered to the Air Force.

 
Dr. Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics, made clear his concerns after visiting Boeing's Everett Washington plant where the plane is assembled.
 
"I left concerned, and I also left thinking Boeing understands they have a severe situation that's going to take top level engagement from their company," Roper said.
 
After discovering the problem, the Air Force stopped accepting the new tankers from Boeing on February 20.
