    Spot on Smokey, this incident seems to be just one example of an ad-hoc engineering attitude towards approved compliance. He (my buddy) mentioned that the other aircraft he worked on also did nt follow wiring drawings, so his initial example was not isolated - which is why he walked - he got another job straight away, so he's a little wiser after this experience.

    Outsourcing to a third party MRO with questionable profit motives. Amazing what yo see working in two different MROs in the same company. I saw expreicnced LAEs walking out of offices saying "I will not do that!" to guys of the same satus as their home base, but in charge. Gashness is not just an overseas thing.
