A matter of massive Chinese fake safety parts knowingly installed on flight Control systems of Boeing planes has been badly covered up.
The matter fell under FAA jurisdiction and FAA acknowledged it. However, FAA committed crimes to knowingly and willfully give a false statement to U.S. Congress, abuse its power by not conducting an independent investigation, refuse to pass on the serious counterfeiting information to law enforcement agencies for criminal investigation, set criminals at large. As a result, the safety threat looms large.
U.S. Special Federal Aviation Laws makes it a crime to willfully and unlawfully conceal criminal information to law enforcement agencies (LEA).
TITLE 14 - AERONAUTICS AND SPACE
CHAPTER I - FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION, DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
PART 13 - INVESTIGATIVE AND ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES
SFAR No. 72
Sec. 13.23 Criminal penalties.
(b) If an inspector or other employee of the FAA becomes aware of a
possible violation of any criminal provision of the Federal Aviation Act
of 1958 (except a violation of section 902 (i) through (m) which is
reported directly to the Federal Bureau of Investigation), or of the
Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, relating to the transportation
or shipment by air of hazardous materials, he or she shall report it to
the Office of the Chief Counsel or the Regional Counsel or Assistant
Chief Counsel for the region or area concerned. If appropriate, that
office refers the report to the Department of Justice for criminal
prosecution of the offender. If such an inspector or other employee
becomes aware of a possible violation of a Federal statute that is
within the investigatory jurisdiction of another Federal agency, he or
she shall immediately report it to that agency according to standard FAA
practices. 18 USC Sec. 2071
TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
Sec. 2071. Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally
(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates,
obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so
takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding,
map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and
unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or
destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned
not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office
and be disqualified from holding any office under the United
In the matter, the verified Chinese counterfeiting supplier was caught having:
- Had no traveler but forged traveler on that SPOF blocking of B737 spoiler during Moog mishandled investigation.
- Forged company stamps, which were used to falsify material certification and purchase orders.
- Systematically and deliberately falsified material certificates by changing and adding the quantities of approved material sources on the certificates, while using unapproved/questionable substitute materials instead.
- Counterfeiting SPOF blocking of B737 spoiler compromising some 500 B737 now in service.
In the matter, Moog was caught that:
- Top executive intentionally leaked confidential whistleblow information to the very internal suspect tampering evidence and witness.
It is beyond any doubt the FAA willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, destroys and therefore, commits a felony.
The FAA felony was well testified by aviation legend Mr. Rodney Stich,a former FAA airline safety inspector during an earlier time in aviation travel when there existed a world-record number of airline disasters, especially at a politically-powerful airline corporation, and in the days when the government aviation safety agency, the FAA, was referred to by knowledgeable insiders as "the tombstone agency."
As he attempted to correct the money-saving safety irregularities, he came under intense attacks from multiple segments of the FAA controlled by the political management. The serious safety irregularities went uncorrected.
While he was under attack, more crashes and deaths occurred. One of those crashes, with 43 cremated alive passengers, occurred at Salt Lake City. Despite those deaths, the same culture continued......
Time has changed, thanks to social media, we, the whistleblowers, are able to post hardcore evidence of the fraud and crime that Moog, Boeing, and the FAA cannot deny and defend. The exhibits embedded in this relater's posts are from reputable journalists' investigative discoveries, Moog internal memos released by Moog attorneys during the legal discovery process or from FOIA release.
These posts are served to publicly disclose the truth and fact in order to raise flying public outcry that may compel related agencies to take action in order to get the criminals behind bars and safety threat removed.
Rod Stitch said:
Few, if any, will speak up. Those in the industry are afraid of retaliations, and the public doesn't want to hear it (because all the officials and pundits say flying is safer than ever).
Another whistleblower experienced the same FAA corruption and crime just like what this relater did.
FedEx's maintenance practices were so bad I was forced to go to upper management and subsequently the FAA, both of which failed to properly investigate my complaints, furthermore the FAA failed to protect me under the Whistleblower Protection Act.
This lack of enforcement on the FAA's part resulted in my being repeatedly, harassed and retaliated against by FedEx for safety complaints and terminated 2 years ago.
The FAA failed to substantiate any of my claims regarding my first whistleblower case. FAA Audits and Evaluations, wouldn't admit to a cover up, yet claimed their investigators were unqualified. I was issued another whistleblower case and contacted my Senator, initiating a congressional inquiry.
I am not the only mechanic at FedEx LAX with WhistleBlower Complaints. And not the only individual to be retaliated against or terminated. OSHA DOL has also refused to do proper investigations regarding FedEx further hurting anyone with a whistleblower complaint.
At the initiation of my second Whistleblower complaint, the FAA promised a thorough investigation that would involve 18 investigators and months to perform. That quickly got whittled down to 4 investigators prepared with a laundry list of excuses and little motivation.
Even though there have been many hurdles the FAA has at least substantiated that FedEX has not accomplished repairs in accordance with the Structural Repair Manual. The FAA substantiated that FedEx ignored needed repairs, substantiated that Substantial damage was done to an aircraft during repairs.
The FAA "Partially Substantiated" (This term I believe is used to try and protect FedEx and possibly allow FedEx to continue to operate suspected "Unairworthy" Aircraft).
The FAA has also ignored to investigate, or at the very least failed to admit they investigated other serious violations regarding aircraft maintenance, falsification of Aircraft Safety Documents and the airworthiness of certain aircraft.
They have also failed to investigate or admit to an investigation regarding the lack of training, and skills possessed by FedEx aircraft structural mechanics.
This was stated by an FAA rep. during the Southwest investigation. "We are told that the airlines are our customers, and if they do well we do well--more jobs for us.
It's extremely difficult to find anyone that's not in Fred's Pocket. Or fears retaliation from the agency they work for, for investigating FedEx. The one FAA inspector that I felt was honest and wanted to do his job, isn't even allowed to talk to me now. Imagine that. FedExwhistleblower, Apr 21, 2014
I would imagine that that is what could have happened, but I have dealt with this all the way to the FAA Audits and Evaluations, Even the Inspector General is trying to ignore this situation which tells me it might even go higher than the FAA. President Obama did say Fred is his favorite CEO. FedExwhistleblower, Apr 21, 2014
The public is responding to the corruption and crime FAA committed
This is not new, been going on for decades.
