lol, I remember, after a D check somewhere Far East, our techs found a flashlight in the stabilizer, 2 wooden planks in the #2 fuel tank which while floating around were bouncing off wiring and pumps etc(B744), guess isn't a safety issue in the US Air Force....
I guess not pulling the pins on the ejection seats is not a safety risk either by that standard.
