Please find attached, correspondence to the Chairman of the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the agency tasked with investigating the tragic accident of Asiana Flight 214 in San Francisco on Saturday 6 July, 2013.
The correspondence is written by a retired Senior Instructor Pilot for the Boeing Company and refers to a severe conflict of interest posed by the inclusion of the Boeing Company as member of the accident investigation team. That conflict of interest has previously led to the death of 158 people in another accident scenario in India, where Boeing suppressed vital flight safety warnings in protection of its own commercial interests.
The National Transportation Safety Board, who relies on Boeing to present technical expertise, has been informed of Boeing's nefarious actions in order to alleviate the possibility of similar acts of suppression and cover-up in the San Francisco crash investigation. The NTSB has also been requested to further act upon the knowledge of Boeing wrongdoing so as to prevent future airline accidents stemming from the same unresolved causes involving the Boeing Company.
Further information is available from the public court records mentioned in the attached correspondence, or directly from the writer.

Dear Ms. Hersman,
Re: Crash of Asiana Flight 214 and Boeing Company Misconduct
As retired Senior Instructor Pilot for the Boeing Company, I wish to bring your sober attention to a severe conflict of interest posed by the inclusion of the Boeing Company as member of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) team investigating the tragic accident of Asiana Flight 214 on July 6, 2013.
The Boeing Company has in the past suppressed vital flight safety warnings when those warnings were in conflict with its own business interests. One such cover-up of pertinent flight safety warnings led directly to an air accident in which 158 people lost their lives. As part of the investigating team into that accident, Boeing acted to prevent exposure of its own culpability and instead left the blame with the flight crew. This scenario is very likely to be repeated in the investigation of the crash of Asiana Flight 214 should any indication arise of Boeing culpability. The NTSB should thus not be ignorant of Boeing's past modus operandi and present conflict of interest, and should take prudent actions to ameliorate that conflict.
The Boeing Company and several of its high-level officials are presently facing murder charges, and the company a class action suit in the US District Court for Western Washington (case no. 13cv982), for its violent suppression of safety warnings that led to the death (murder) of 158 people in the accident of Air India Express Flight IX-812. All rational deductions concluded pilot error as the cause of that accident, except for the suppressed safety warnings, which apportioned the main cause directly to the Boeing Company. In the murder charges, Boeing and its Directors are accused of extreme indifference to human life when measured against its own commercial interests, for its willful suppression of the crucial safety warnings. (See proceedings in the aforementioned case and related cases in the same court, numbers 12cv474 and 09cv962; and case no. 13-2-19597-6 KNT in the Washington State Superior Court for King County).
On June 13, 2013, more than three weeks prior to the accident of Asiana Flight 214, the US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and the US District Court in Seattle were warned of the grave potential of further loss of life and injury from the same causes if those causes were not tended to in the interests of public safety. Quote:
"Unless the existing lawlessness within the Boeing Company is addressed and known criminals in senior positions at Boeing are brought to justice, the catastrophic example of Flight IX-812 is most likely to be repeated with further loss of innocent lives in preventable aircraft accidents caused by ongoing criminality within the Boeing Company".
These facts are not shared in speculation as to the causes of, or blame for, the accident of Flight 214. Rather, this information intends to warn the NTSB of a potential cover-up by Boeing of any incriminating evidence connecting the company or its aircraft to the accident of Flight 214 -- just as Boeing did with Flight IX812. With the foregoing information in mind, and in the interests of a 'thorough, objective, and independent investigation', as NTSB Chairman you are obligated to thoroughly scrutinize information presented by Boeing to the NTSB investigating team concerning Flight 214, thereby preventing any suppression of potential incriminating evidence against the Boeing Company.
More importantly, as an independent federal agency, you are to take cognizance of the flight safety warning presented above. Rather than investigate preventable accidents caused by the same unresolved issues after the fact, instead, before the next avoidable accident occurs, ensure that known causes are removed, that the ongoing criminality within Boeing is properly addressed, and that "known criminals in senior positions at Boeing are brought to justice". That is surely a duty you owe to the international flying public, as the crash of Flight 214 may well indicate.
Information concerning the criminality within the Boeing Company (including the crimes of coercion to silence a safety report, retaliation against a whistleblower, and attempted murder of a court witness), can be found in the proceedings of the aforementioned court cases and/or gleaned directly from the undersigned.
Kindly ensure that this information concerning Boeing Company misconduct is distributed to each member of the NTSB investigating team, including Asiana Air Lines and members of the South Korean Transportation Ministry, who deserve a thorough and unbiased investigation of the accident of Flight 214. Please have the courtesy to advise me that this information has been shared.
(Retired Senior Boeing Company Instructor Pilot)
