Iran Overhauls Five 747 Bowings
ISNA - Tehran (Iranian Students News Agency) ^ | 07-09-2006 | Staff

Posted on 07/10/2006 9:04:37 AM PDT by Paleo Conservative

TEHRAN, July 09 (ISNA)-Iran has successfully overhauled five 747 Bowings.

This is while before this, Iranian airlines had to send their planes to foreign companies, but today Iran has gained the ability to carryout this service with much lower expenses.

"Of course we can not deny the negative effects of the placed airplane part sanctions, but we have removed many of the obstacles through the aid of airlines," said the executing company's manager.

They can't even spell "Boeing" correctly. I don't think I'd want to fly in Iran Air's planes.

I wonder if they put F-14 transponders in these aircraft?

Man are they in for a surprise when the Boeing parts don't fit on their Bowings.

That's like an Emily Latella moment

"Bowings" is about right, considering their 'prayer' regiment.

Wasn't that one of the reasons that the USS Vincenes shot down the Iranian Airliner because it was squawking code that identified it as a hostile aircraft?

I think they usually buy authentic parts through foreign corporations, but I'm sure there are a couple of "quick fixes" with local parts. Those 747SPs are the funniest lookin' things...

Parts illegally salvaged from crashes, counterfeit parts and other substandard components regularly find their way into the world's air fleets, sold at bargain prices, often with falsified documents about their origin or composition.

For the flying public, they are a growing peril.

"The whole system is contaminated,'' said Peter Friedman, director of quality at an aircraft repair station in Oakland, Calif. "In my position, I find unapproved parts on a daily basis.''

"Unapproved parts'' is the Federal Aviation Administration's term for components not certified as airworthy - from fraudulently produced knockoffs made from inadequate alloys to recycled pieces misrepresented to hide defects, age or crash damage.

In the industry, they are known as "bogus parts.'' For people with no qualms about putting the flying public at risk, it's a lucrative market. The worldwide aircraft parts inventory is worth $45 billion.

Reports at the time, (which were quickly squashed,) was that the Iranian Airlines wasn't squawking anything.
The airline was coming directly toward the Vincenes, and the "passengers" were already dead.
There were also a couple short lived reports that an Iranian F-14 was directly behind the so called commercial airliner.
The F-14 was detected resulting in the shoot down.
That theory indicates a deliberate Iranian plan to get us to shoot down the airliner.

If I remember correctly all of the people that were pulled out of the water were naked. Subsequent reports stated that they believed that all the passengers were already dead prior to takeoff. It was a sympathy ploy by the Iranians against the Americans.

Actually this IS the correct spelling. Its a new model reviving ancient technology for takeoffs. (To save fuel as Iran is running low - hence their desire for nuclear energy.) They were going to call it the "Arrow" but they figured that name was already in use.

These aircraft fly the Mecca Pilgramage Route! When they arrive they turn to the Shrine and their landing gear flex and the aircraft says its prayers.

And so do all the passengers, out of their amazement that they actually survived the flight.

A "Bowing"....I almost bought one of those from a guy on the street in New York City. "Psssst, hey buddy, wanna good deal on a genuine Bowing airplane?"

But, more than likely and from my personal experience, the vast majority of the used parts have improper or incomplete paperwork. Thus rendering them as bogus parts. I had to buy a rear evac door for an MD-80 to do a test and the parts guy asked me: "With paper or without?" I asked what the difference was and he said: "$25,000.

This is an incorrect statement, at least in commercial use.

I was talking about only those parts that have been identified as "bogus"...the larger majority of "used parts" have the correct paperwork and can be traced by the FAA to the correct sources.

Not that I was planning on it, but I think I'll avoid the Iranian Bowings and their gray market parts.

How long before they start shooting down airliners just for the crash site parts? The PM there is at least as nutso as Kim Jong Mentally Ill.

Iranian 747SPs in US airspace last year. This is an Iran Air Boeing 747SP on finals for JKF on September 13 2005. It was carrying Ahmadinijad.

Alaskan Airlines had a crash due to a defective jackscrew. The part wasn't certified. It lasted long enough to get airborne and halfway through the flight before failing. The aircraft, passengers and crew experienced an extended period of harrowing malfunction before crashing into the ocean. Repairing a plane with bogus, untested parts is asking for a replay.
