Another Boeing Insider Steps Up with Disturbing Revelations

( – Boeing has had a rough few years and its reputation is struggling. In January, a rear door plug blew off a Boeing 737 Max 9 passenger jet midflight. A few days later, loose parts were found on multiple other Boeing jets. The FAA stepped in and grounded nearly 200 planes overall. Recently, a Boeing whistleblower came forward with some concerning claims about the aviation giant.

On April 9, Boeing engineer Sam Salehpour told The New York Times that sections of the 787 Dreamliner fuselage were not put together properly and could break apart in the air after a certain amount of flights. He also sent his allegations to the FAA — a report confirmed by an FAA spokesperson. The engineer said the issue stemmed from the assembly line where the large sections are pieced together.

Salehpour said the 787 Dreamliner fuselage arrives at the site in several pieces from separate manufacturers and doesn’t necessarily fit together right. Boeing spokesperson Paul Lewis reportedly admitted there were manufacturing changes but stated they had “no impact on [the] durability or safe longevity” of the aircraft.

Lewis said the company did extensive testing on the planes and found no “immediate safety” issues. Also, Lewis stated that Boeing engineers are continuing a “complex analysis” of the Dreamliner to ensure the aircraft has no “long-term fatigue concerns.” Boeing stated that Salehpour’s allegation about its “structural integrity” is false.

Given the ongoing issues with Boeing flights, not everyone is convinced. In fact, Boeing itself recently announced a change in leadership, with multiple executives stepping down from their positions.

The Department of Justice was also propelled into action, conducting a criminal investigation into the January incidents. In addition, the FAA has increased its factory inspections for Boeing and put a cap on how many planes the company can produce each month. The group recently reported finding continued safety issues at Boeing despite improvements since its planes’ fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019.
