Boeing Whistleblowers and Investigations

Beleaguered airline manufacturer Boeing faces at least ten more ‘safe and sound’ whistleblowers after two men who had publicly spoken out against the troubled aerospace company died in recent weeks.


Joshua Dean, a quality auditor at Spirit AeroSystems, died last week, and John Barnett, a quality control engineer at Boeing for 32 years, was found dead at a hotel in March. There remain at least ten other Boeing whistleblowers, both former and current employees, who are “safe and sound” according to lawyers for both Dean and Barnett.

Attorney's Statement

Attorney Brian Knowles described the two men as “heroes” who wanted to “help the company do better.” He emphasized that there are other whistleblowers out there who have concerns and urged them not to be fearful to speak up.

FAA Investigation

On Monday, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) announced it had launched a new investigation into Boeing after the manufacturer “voluntarily” informed it that inspections of a number of its 787 Dreamliner models “may not have been completed.” The FAA is also investigating whether Boeing completed the inspections and whether company employees may have falsified aircraft records.

Previous Incidents

This comes after a string of incidents related to Boeing over the past year, including a door plug blowing off in mid-air of an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 9, leading to the grounding of all 171 MAX 9 jets by the FAA.
