20 New Boeing Whistleblowers Emerge to Expose the Company’s Dangerous Practices in Airplane Manufacturing

A stuffed sheep sporting a face diaper and numerous inoculations and a sign reading “BOEING IS NOT MY DOCTOR” are seen at the Boeing Mesa Headquarters.

20 new credible whistleblowers formerly employed by Boeing or their subcontractors are speaking out to raise awareness of the military defense contractor’s dangerous practices in manufacturing airplanes – even following the mysterious death of the most prominent Boeing whistleblower.

Two of the whistleblowers, long-time Boeing employee Roy Irvin and Santiago Paredes of Spirit AeroSystems, spoke to the New York Post about the abuses they personally witnessed while on the job.

“I was at the end of the production line and so I was supposed to be looking at the finished product before they shipped it to Boeing.” Paredes said. “Instead I saw missing parts, incomplete parts, frames that had temporary clamps and missing fasteners, dents in the parts, damaged parts, cut rivets, issues that might occur but should be fixed before they got to me… Everything I was seeing was like a ticking time bomb.”

“When I would see a problem and then we would try to pursue corrective action, at times my quality leadership would discourage us and tell us not to write or pursue corrective actions,” said Irwin, who worked as a quality investigator at Boeing in North Charleston, SC until 2020, adding that Boeing was “infested with ‘yes men’ and bean-counters.”

Big League Politics reported on how Boeing whistleblower John Barnett went mysteriously dead as he was giving damning testimony exposing Boeing’s willful neglect in airplane manufacturing:

A former Boeing employee who became a whistleblower after retiring from the company was found mysteriously dead from a “suicide” while he was giving testimony attesting to the company’s willful negligence when constructing planes.

John Barnett worked for Boeing for 30 years until he retired in 2017, which included time as a quality manager at a Boeing plant in North Charleston. He oversaw the production of the 787 Dreamliner and attested that workers were pressured by Boeing to use sub-standard parts to fill production quotas. He also claimed to find problems with oxygen masks that were being put into planes despite being faulty in many instances.

Barnett’s corpse was found on Saturday, dying from a so-called “self-inflicted” gun shot wound. This has fueled speculation that Barnett received the Jeffrey Epstein treatment because he was too outspoken about Boeing’s alleged misdeeds. Making things even more suspicious, Barnett “committed suicide” as he was in the midst of giving damning testimony against Boeing. Barnett was in the process of a series of day-long interviews and was scheduled to give more testimony on Saturday, but never showed up and then was found suddenly dead.

“We are saddened by Mr. Barnett’s passing, and our thoughts are with his family and friends,” Boeing said in response to the news.

These whistleblowers are heroes for not backing down even when there may be immense personal consequences for speaking the truth. These men and women need prayers to stand strong for the fight that is ahead of them.
