This is a damn shame! Dear Dirty America reported a similar story months ago (apparently it's still an issue).

Sorry conservatives..
this is your precious free unhindered market at work. Those parts save the contractors thousands, and they in turn pass those savings on to NO ONE.
Free markets at work. The military should just use the planes as if all is OK and when the planes fail or crash, the contractor will not get anymore defense department work. Isn't that how the free market works?
Isn't that what conservatives want?

No moron, it is what you Obama lemmings want. You liberal a-holes run the government and this is what we get. The sooner you and your ilk are defeated and punished for your crimes, the sooner America can recover.

Punished for my crimes????
Thinking republicans are bought and paid for by our gigantic corporations is NOT a crime . Neither is calling our president a commy traitor, lucky for your ilk.
Come on now buddy you know as good as I do, The republican problems with Obama have to do with gov regulations crippling the free markets.
Defense contracting is bid on by free market companies. Making regulations to be sure they get what they paid for will cost our contractors millions in profits they have a legal right to steal from us, the humble taxpayer.
These cut rate parts are how our precious corporations manage to turn huge profits on their bloated contracts.
It just free markets at work. You real Americans need to protect those free markets at all costs, Not just to make Obama look bad.

So what is it republican parrot boy......
Free markets???
Or
Regulation at the hands of the evil overlord Obama????
Can't have it both ways.
Fly junk military equipment, or cripple the free markets that make America great?
How about it parrot boy.... What ya think?
