Lawsuit: Boeing planes used defective parts
28 May 2005

Three members of a Boeing Wichita internal investigative team are suing the Boeing on behalf of the U.S. government, claiming dozens of aircraft with subassemblies manufactured in Wichita contained defective parts. They also contend that the company knew about these bogus parts and continued to buy them. The parts ended up on Boeing planes sold to the U.S. Navy and Air Force and military forces of a.o. Japan, Italy, Turkey and Australia. (Seattle Times)
