Boeing, a major aircraft manufacturer, has been exposed for using counterfeit and substandard parts in 737s for years and continues to do so.

Not until whistleblower Charles Shi came into the picture, putting his life in danger while exposing the truth, He was “warned by the Chinese police” that he “could be arrested without charge or even murdered anytime.”

“My situation is getting worse,” the whistleblower writes in an exclusive email to CDP. He said, “I have no way to escape, I have to fight to the end.”

Mr. Shi is awake at night not because he fears for his own life, but because he fears for the lives of the flying public. During a landing, “if the spoiler fails, the plane will overshoot and a fatal accident will occur,” Mr. Shi explains.

And in order to keep Mr. Shi quiet, they would prefer to kill him, and they’ll simply let their insurance companies pay the families of dead passengers when his dire warnings come true and there is a crash.

Mr. Shi writes that the FBI is supposed to be conducting a criminal investigation so that the flying public can “fly safe, not like it is now, playing Russian roulette each and every time they get on a plane.”

But even the FAA is fully aware of all the nasty details but has done virtually nothing to stop the problem.

The FAA promised the OIG in April that they would straighten up and fly properly.

Mr. Shi submitted one of those reports, where the OIG states in their decision.

They agreed nearly a year ago to turn over “all confirmed SUP’s reports to federal law enforcement agencies in accordance with its letter of agreement, which is consistent with the intent of our recommendation.”

All the way through the manufacturing process to document how substandard raw materials were used in the manufacturing process by “Unknown, unregulated” second-tier “sub-“sub-contractors, Mr. Shi meticulously documented one particular “safety-critical” part.

He wanted to present the FAA with a rock-solid criminal case that they could hand directly to the FBI, a “block” which forms part of the “spoiler” system.

Mr. Shi explained that if you ever looked out the window of a jet as it was getting ready to land, you may have noticed the trailing edge of the wing seems to break open. Flaps, called spoilers, are extended to create drag and slow the plane down. It is unnerving enough to watch them open up but imagine seeing one or more rip completely off, and “that is exactly what happened to “Icelandair Boeing 757-200 at Keflavik on Feb 26th, 2013,” Mr. Shi said.

When the flap gets “detached,” or what we would call “ripped away,” in airplane speak they call it “floating.”

Mr. Shi is fighting desperately to avoid more situations like this, and being a whistleblower has him in one of those “worse” situations and he’s screaming for help from the public.

This author first covered Mr. Shi’s alarming news in March of 2018 when it appeared in major sources, including Reuters. His story got an update this February when News Hour First warned that “Boeing 737s are still using dangerously brittle ‘half baked’ counterfeit parts” This author noted at the time that “unless the public is looking over Uncle Sam’s shoulder, nothing will be done to stop a tragedy.” It was obvious that “instead of starting a criminal probe, the Federal Bureau of Instigation seems to have ‘buried’ the file.” Now, in China, they are trying to bury Mr. Shi.

His controversy was also recently reported by the Epoch Times. “I was warned by Chinese police to withdraw the ET article before it published that I could be taken away,” the whistleblower writes to Right Wing News Hour. “Even though I was not arrested following ET article published last week, the risk is still there, I could be arrested without charge or even murdered anytime.”

Shi Chaosheng anglicized to “Charles Shi” isn’t just some fanatic who doesn’t like Boeing. When this all started he was East Asia supply chain manager for Moog Aircraft. Moog is an American parts manufacturer and supplier to Boeing. He found out about the use of bogus parts and properly reported it. Instead of getting thanks, his life was ruined.

After the U.S. watchdogs refused to do any serious sniffing, he filed criminal charges in China which turned out to be a major source of anxiety for all of his sources, when the defendant sued the whistleblower back, alleging “defamation.” The court judge in Suzhou, China intentionally handed over every scrap of evidence that Mr. Shi collected, straight to the accused defendant, New Hongji Precision Parts Co., Ltd. (NHJ), based in the city of Suzhou, Jiangsu Province in China.

The documents included sensitive information putting Mr. Shi’s former colleagues at risk too. Because NHJ sued him, the judge said they could have it. What was handed over included “confidential and private information of witnesses,” Mr. Shi writes.

As related by ET, The police also passed to the NHJ the witness testimonies they had collected and personal data of the whistleblower’s supporting witnesses like their personal IDs, telephone numbers, and addresses. “It is obvious that the judge and police were violating laws themselves by knowingly protecting the counterfeiting suspect.”

According to Epoch Times:

“The police refused to press charges against the Chinese firm, warned Shi to stop speaking to the press, and banned him from traveling to the United States.” Mr. Shi was invited to a U.S. airline safety hearing last October, but had to decline because he “was informed by the police that he was banned from overseas travel.” Just as well he wasn’t flying because that’s the really dangerous crap-shoot these days.

The police are strong-arming Mr. Shi because the whistleblower provided incontrovertible proof that the official records show the raw materials obtained from the legitimate supplier are only half of what was required to make the number of parts shipped out. That means the rest of the material had to come from somewhere else. According to Shi, this was “the key criminal fact.” The police aren’t interested in criminal facts when they get orders from party officials.

There were fireworks at a meeting with the police on July 4, 2019. When the police handed him “raw materials certifications from NHJ,” Shi laughed in their faces. NHJ is a manufacturer, not a supplier. “How could it produce its own materials certifications?” They even produced a document that proves his claim on its very face and refused to acknowledge that it means anything.

As ET reports, “The police also showed Shi the witness testimonies they had obtained. One of the key witnesses said that she stood by what she said to Shi back in Feb 2, 2017: that NHJ knowingly falsified materials certifications and their ex-employees admitted to her that they were the ‘counterfeiting brigade’ and knew that they would go to jail if caught.” Who’s looking at life in a cell? Whistleblower Charles Shi. The police in China say “NHJ counterfeiting was not necessarily a crime.” They can tell that to the families, who are crying over tombstones when the crash finally does happen.
