>From today's news:

"The Air Force will keep more than 40 percent of its older model F-15
fighter jets grounded indefinitely after discovering that critical
support beams have manufacturing flaws dating back nearly 30 years that
could lead to catastrophic damage to the aircraft... Air Force officials
also said they are having difficulty locating the original contracting
paperwork and are unsure whether McDonnell Douglas made the specific
part that is failing or whether it was made by another vendor for
inclusion in the airplanes."

In other words, no one audited for the paperwork's retrievability until
the planes started falling apart in midair (yes, literally). Maybe the
Air Force should also look for the paperwork on the other 30-year-old
planes, ships, and tanks that are still in use.
