I worked at Boeing from 1988-2007 and worked on: 737, 747, 757, 767, 777, and 787 commercial jet aircraft.

Active in Church, volunteered for the HEARTS for HAITI program by the LDS church, where 1,000's of volunteers offered their time & talents to prepare kits with blankets, water filters, soap, tooth brush, wash rags, other Hygiene items, and more. This sent to the people of Haiti just days after the great Earth Quake that occurred there. Also gave generously when Church contributed to the many floods in the Mississippi Delta, Tornado's in Mid-West, and Fires in California, and Colorado. The Tsunami Katrina in New Orleans. Also helped the Japanese after the 5 Fukushima Nuclear Power Plants failed when their big Tsunami hit.

Wrote a damning report (2007 before problems began) to Boeing Quality Assurance, Ethics, and Legal Departments, as well as the FAA about the many safety violations on the 787 Jet that was recently grounded worldwide for almost 4 months in 2013. I was interviewed by the FAA in May 2013 where we talked about the lack of proper testing on the 787 for wing-to-body join area, among many other items of safety on many of the precision machined part. The lack of First Parts Check/ First Article Inspection by Boeing personnel. In Sep 2013 Boeing announced plans to improve many safety items that include making stronger the wing-to-body join of the new 787-9 aircraft that they are working on now. See web link:
