“Boeing assembly personnel were witnessed improperly redrilling the holes in the bear strap or forcing the parts into position for fastening to the aircraft,” whistleblowers allege in a federal suit against Boeing and Ducommun.
In their lawsuit, the whistleblowers charge that 32 Boeing airplanes sold to the U.S. government, mostly for military use, had dangerously defective parts and should be grounded.
