The find means that you have to re-inspect several hundred aircraft, the author points out. At the same time, he somehow very politely avoids the question of how, with such a quality of assembly and control, can all Boeing corporation products be trusted in general?
Boeing found garbage in the gas tanks of several hundred undeliverable Max 737 aircraft. This is a potential security risk and another headache for a company that is again trying to fly the airliners after two fatal crashes.
Boeing’s vice president and general manager of 737, Mark Jenks, sent an email to all employees telling them about the detection of foreign objects – that is, debris.
“Foreign objects are totally unacceptable,” Jenks wrote in an email. “Even one oversight is already too much.”
The nature of the garbage is not mentioned in the message, but most often in such cases we are talking about tools or parts forgotten during assembly. A Boeing spokesman said that the work to eliminate garbage, most likely, will not affect the attempts to take the planes into the air.
While the Federal Aviation Administration and international oversight bodies decide whether it is safe to resume flights, the Boeing is putting the newly manufactured 737 Max aircraft in storage. In January, when a few more months were left until the necessary permits were obtained, the company stopped building the new 737 Max at its Renton plant near Seattle. Last week, airlines began to push the launch date for Max even further. In particular, United (United) removed the plane from the flight schedule until early September.
