Abilene Slim SASS 81783 Posted September 3, 2022 Share Posted September 3, 2022 According to the Wall Street Journal, the faulty o-rings that grounded the entire CH-47 fleet weren’t really faulty. But they had apparently been given the wrong part number and weren’t meant for that application. An 11-cent part grounded around 400 Chinooks until they sort things out. With the millions of parts that have to be catalogued and inventoried, I’m kinda surprised this sort of thing doesn’t happen more often. Or maybe it does and we just don’t hear about it. Glad they found the problem so soon. Whew! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
