Another Boeing whistleblower

Another Boeing whistleblower has come forward with claims that safety and quality issues were ignored and concerns were dismissed by management.

Roy Irvin, who worked at Boeing’s plant in South Carolina from 2011 to 2017 as a quality investigator, alleged that he was reprimanded as “insubordinate” for flagging safety and quality issues on 787 Dreamliner planes that he inspected.

“Missing safety devices on hardware or un-tightened hardware means that you’re not going to be able to control the airplane if those fail,” Irvin told the New York Post. “The safety device is on there. If the fastener is not secured correctly, it’s going to fall off and you’re not gonna be able to control the airplane.”

The development comes after the Guardian spoke with workers at Boeing’s Everett, Washington plant, who said the factory was in “panic mode” as they stripped and repaired 787 jets flown across from South Carolina to be fixed.
