You mean scroll down to read just two short paragraphs, right? You need a subscription to view the full story.

....I know it doesn't appear to be much of a issue reading some of the posts here, but it does concern me that Boeing pretty much continues un-checked in their accountability for issues like this...or should I perhaps touch the nerve that pride in American workmanship depicted in articles like this just doesn't mean shit anymore....

Like we said at MDCAN, who can see the flaw at 30,000 ft !

It must've been another tequila sunrise at Boeing's plant.

He became an avionics engineer after his oil and gas career did not pan out.

The people that work on the new VC-25s (and the current fleet when they are in depot) all have Yankee White clearances. These are a pain in the ass to get and maintain. If you were found to be the culprit in this, you would be instantly fired. Don't know who would be so stupid to risk this.

That big-ass airplane that POTUS flies on

If you want to cause a hissy fit on a worksite take some empty alcohol containers to work and leave them in hidey hole

Want to find nip bottles in a factory? Talk to the plumbers who maintain the toilet facilities. This goes for management's too.

If you read more closely they were two MINIATURE bottles of tequila....like 1 ounce each. Not exactly a very big deal.

No kidding, I agree. Should it have happened, no. Is the aircraft going to crash on take-off because of it? Very unlikely. But the media loves to hate Boeing.

They were miniatures. Any decent aircraft worker in Texas would have left gallon bottles.

I bet those will not be the last Liquor bottles found on those planes!! Even when they become AF1!

Probably put there by an outsourced subassembly worker.

They're used airplanes pulled from the desert. They are being gutted. Who says they weren't there when the planes came in?

Bourbon could be better

I hope that the person had cloves on so his fringerprints could not be traced

Bah. They were Qingdao bottles left by the Chinese workers.

I agree with those who think it's not a big deal.
On a plane like that there are likely uncountable engineering and build !#@%-ups that dwarf any QA problems of that sort. We hope they are found in test - but not always.
I had a PM who kept a couple of bottles of hard stuff in his desk - for medicinal purposes only - and we never had issues with what we built over 40+ years of total success in a program that had access requirements far beyond this.
It's likely a plant to cause just this kind of front-page splash.
