    Its' unbelievable that a Boeing factory can't follow proper routines... that Boeing, a 100+ year company, certainly put first in place. Litter and debris, as dangerous as they can be when left in cavities, are of a slightly minor concerns here. But tools should be registered and accounted at the end of the day.
    The mad tempo and tight budget are certainly a primary cause in this debacle.

    Strictly my opinion here...

    Boeing has been under the gun since they got the contract, which was originally awarded to Airbus. I've often wondered what results would be seen had Airbus been the company building the new tanker, and not Boeing.

    Looks like UAC is taking certain measures to see a new big IAF MKI MLU coming their way.

    Failed hard there Scooter.
    Just waiting for you to promote the F-16xx and F-35 for IAF.. again, if nothing else.

    And fyi, India has not Rejected buying the Su-57.
    They have rejected the FGFA version, i suspect after India held talks with Sukhoi, they was told the cost for a highly customized two seater Su-57(or sigel seater!) was too costly to pursue, and it was agreed that the FGFA was official dead.
    That does not mean IAF wont get the Russian Su-57.
    The Su-57 is delayed alright, due the engine development no doubt.

    India will engage in new talks for Su-57 down the road, just be patience.

    The Su-30MKI's are a continuation of the current order and only because India has nothing else available. While, the Mig-29's are second hand.....both just a desperate attempt to get fighter numbers up. As quickly and cheaply as possible...


    Nonetheless, the simple fact is India has no plans to acquire any additional Russian Types in the foreseeable future. As she has "rejected" the Su-57. While, not even considering a Russia Type in the current contest to acquire a New Fighters for both the Indian Air Force and Navy. Which, they have made clear will be a Western Type for both.....


    Yet, if somebody has contrary information I am all ears.
