Duckworth to Boeing: “You Haven’t Told Us the Whole Truth”
On one year anniversary of the Lion Air Flight 610 crash, Duckworth slams Boeing executives about the removal of safety features leading to two tragic crashes. U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a general aviation pilot and combat Veteran, today slammed Boeing for the company’s decision to remove a critical safety function without adding an offsetting feature and its failure to inform pilots of the change or provide new training for them. Duckworth's criticism of the company’s decisions came during remarks addressed to Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg and John Hamilton, Vice President and Chief Engineer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, at a Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Subcommittee on Aviation and Space Subcommittee hearing held today on the one year anniversary of the tragic Lion Air Flight 610 crash in Indonesia.
