Look What Three Mechanics Did To Air Force One That Could Have KILLED President Trump
Recently, 3 private contractors were allowed to work for Boeing in Texas on an aircraft from the Air Force One fleet used by the president. This gave them access to the one of the most secure airplanes in the world. Instead of grabbing their chance with both hands, they caused $4 millionin damage and even worse, they compromised the plane!
Donald Trump is lucky to have a spare Boeing mechanic who noticed the problem and alerted the authorities. If he hadn’t done so, the airplane might have exploded in mid-air, killing the president and all the staff immediately. For their “mistake”, the contractors are in hot water and will definitely face harsh charges.
Working on the president’s airplane comes with a high degree of responsibility. “Boeing fully understands the level of responsibility that comes from working on the President’s aircraft. We took swift action to self-report the incident to the US Air Force. The oxygen system was remediated by Boeing at no cost to the government,” a representative of the company said in a statement.
However, this leaves a big stain on the company. Their mechanists’ “mistake” could’ve been fatal, and could’ve plunged our country in chaos. Q13 Fox says that a full Federal investigation has been launched, and the irresponsible mechanics will face charges.
According to a report, the mechanics “caused the mishap by supplying and using non-oxygen clean tools, parts, components, a regulator, and an unauthorized cleaning procedure while performing oxygen system leak checks.” This occurred back in April 2016 when Obama was in charge, and the plane was passed on to the new president. Here’s a report made by Q13 Fox which clearly shows how dangerous the “mistake” was:
“Tools and components used to repair a plane’s oxygen system must be cleaned in a particular way to remove any residue that could react when it comes into contact with oxygen, the report noted.”
“If left unchecked, a contaminated oxygen system could increase the risk of fire or even cause an explosion.”
Investigators claim that it wasn’t just the mechanics who were responsible for this dangerous oversight, but Boeing’s as well who has a contract with the US Air Force to build and maintain two aircrafts in the presidential fleet.”
“The potentially dangerous outcome of failing to use proper cleaning procedures on the President’s aircraft has raised questions about Boeing’s training and oversight methods,” Q13’s report explained. “Investigators found that the mechanics ‘failed to observe explicit warnings concerning cleanliness’ while working on the oxygen system — one of three major factors identified as leading to the contamination.”
Although the outcome might have been fatal, the fate of the 3 employees at Boeing is still unclear. The company didn’t comment on their status, and no one knows if they still work there. Luckily, other staff managed to catch the issue on time before it was too late. Bravo for Boeing as well for publicly admitting for the mistake and repairing the jet at no cost to taxpayers.
