The Boeing Company was cited by the Pentagon for continuing quality, management and other deficiencies first declared more than two years ago, including problems related to the production of its flagship F/A-18 and F-15 jets, according to a report from Bloomberg citing documents and officials.

Flaws at Boeing’s St. Louis aircraft production facility ranged from missing, backwards and out-of-specification fasteners found on undelivered F/A-18s and F-15s to oversized holes, the news report said, citing four “Corrective Action Requests” issued by the Pentagon’s contractor watchdog.

Records compiled by the agency show some of the issues remain unresolved after more than 904 days, the report said.
