Washington – It can be highly charged as a woman from the gal of the hearing, which included the family of victims of Boeing crashes yelled at Boeing’s chief executive David Calhoun. In Tuesday, Mr. Calhoun said to Congress that the company has gotten over their previous squandered tests and that the employee whistleblowers system is efficient but the lawmakers disagreed while lambasting him that he did not do enough regarding retaliation culture.

January saw a rather embarrassing incident where a door panel flew off a virgin 737 Max during an Alaskan Airlines flight, which created a rather humongous dent on the reputation of the US company. The 737 Max, 787 Dreamliner and some 777 series have production concerns and were named in a Senate inquiry where Boeing insiders spoke in April.

An article entitled “Senate subcommittee critical of community college reaction to sexual assault” in the Chronicle of higher education stated that Calhoun who became chancellor of the system last year and intends to resign by this year said that, “Some of it is a function of having an untrained workforce”. However, he said, since Covid, the industry had witnessed staff cutbacks and high employee turnover, which impacted the company’s manufacturing.

The human resource executive lamented, ‘There is so much of a reliance in not having a human-resource-trained workforce. ’ Lo pointed to these when emphasizing his statement: This organization was in the spot light about five years ago following two 737 max crashes in similar circumstances that led to the death of three hundred and forty six individuals.

At the hearing, there were people who lost their family members in those accidents holding picture of their deceased family members. And, indeed, they discussed it outdoors in a news conference prior to that. ”I travelled from England just to be here in Washington DC to listen to what Boeing’s Chief Executive has to say regarding any sort of safety in that firm to Senate and to the World; Zipporah Kuria, a victim who lost her father in the 2019 Boeing 737 MAX 8 crash. I am also demanding the US government to arrest Boeing & their corporate officials for manslaughter of 346 people. How has True felt for you? True: We will not stop until justice is served.


During the hearing, Claris Moore, the mother of one of the victims of the 2019 crash of a Boeing plane in Ethiopia, grilled Mr. Calhoun asking him about “my daughter’s last breath on the plane. ” .”Did she call for me?” “Did someone hold her hands?” she blazed. The hearing commenced on a sad tone as the committee chairman Richard Blumenthal told the families ‘thank you for being strong enough, and valiant enough to be with us’.

He challenged Boeing to say what it was doing to begin to change this manufacturing «safety culture».Mr Calhoun replied: It is my sworn word that I communicated to some of the whistleblowers. He also stated that he never talked with two whistleblowers who claim they are being driven out of the company to be rewarded. “ I know it happens, ” he said, said he was unaware of the number of employees that were dismissed or scolded for reporting their conditions.

During the start of the hearing Mr Calhoun stood up and turned to the families and said sorry and he choked as if he was ready to cry. The another witness called Boeing chief engineer Howard McKenzie responded to the question on whether there was a culture in Boeing engineering team where safety came first.

Speaking to BBC News after the hearing, Senator Blumenthal said: This witness was not helpful, inadequate in his/her testimony, and thus we shall proceed with our investigation. There are much more questions to be asked and we will continue with our probe, he said. This comes after in May the US justice department warned Boeing that they were under a criminal investigation concerning matters linked to 737 Max This was disclosed in June by Pune Times.
