The level of dumbass is simply mind boggling.
A few weeks ago there was a flight squawk on the number one airplane (you know, the one that's actually flown) - bad engine data. I took one look, said it's not an engine problem, you have a wiring problem. After a week of 20 person meetings, someone finally showed me the wire diagram I'd asked for right after the squawk was reported - and I told them exactly where to look for the wiring problem. After two more weeks of 20 person meetings, someone actually went out to the airplane, checked the wiring, and found a short where I'd told them to look two weeks earlier.
Mind boggling dumbass...
I feel your pain td.
