U.S. Air Force again halts deliveries of Boeing KC-46 tanker aircraft

"Air force halting delivery of Boeing refueling plane over debris found on board. So for the second time in two months, therefore stopped accepting deliveries of the Boeing, Casey, forty six tanker refueling aircraft after debris was found in the plane's coming off the production line. You have the air force secretary Heather Wilson, telling congress we actually stopped again. The acceptance of the KC forty six. Forty-six rather because the foreign debris that we found some of the compartments. So this is a quality control failure. It's not design. It's not engineering. It's quality control. Mean remember last month air force stopped deliveries on in February sometime after trash in tools or Fahd were found on board planes. Somebody is laying down on the job and Boeing boy. Boeing doesn't want anything to do with anymore controversies is they're immersed in the jumbo jets. And the fact that they're they've got people that have backed away from ordering them. And I think you have Jerry public. Meaning people who want nothing to do with that who see what's happened in. They see. On the on the news, and they hear about the southwest plane that has a turn around with the pilots and that does not make anybody comfortable at all. In fact, in causes them mostly to to squirm. So we have a couple of battles brewing. We've got Boeing in in trouble with a couple of different in a couple of different areas that don't endear them to frankly anyone and you wonder about that stock. You wonder if it's going to drop like a rock, or is or are they going to straighten out, the the, you know? The the max situation the jumbo jet situation because that's number one and get those get those jets delivered or you're going to be more stoppage in that area. And I'm going to say, I think I think it could drag on. I don't think that this is an easy fix. It doesn't it doesn't feel that way to me. Essay has the clear it, I think there is a little bit of a wedge that's growing, and I would be crossing my fingers that would be doing the rain dance be doing frankly, and he superstitious thing anybody can think of to. To to change the. You know, the state of where it's headed. I guess is the best way to say that.

How much would it cost to create a military Space Force?

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by Mozilla makers of the brand new fire FOX monitor a free service to help you stay safe from hackers. You'll get a full report if you have compromised accounts and notifications if you appear in new data breaches take care at monitor fire, FOX dot com. How much would it cost to create a military space force from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Kimberly Adams in for Molly would. President Trump has said repeatedly that he wants a space force congress denied the request for a new branch of the military in the latest funding Bill, but some have started pricing it out including the center for strategic and international studies. Todd Harrison is director of the aerospace security project there. He broke it down into three models a space corps within the air force a space force light. Or a space force heavy all of which would mostly use existing military resources, but would require an additional one and a half to two point seven billion dollars over five years Harrison says his estimate is based on the idea that a lot of the work is just moving people around all of those things that we do today for national security space that authority right now is fragmented across the military. What a space force would do is actually combine those into one organization and one unified chain of command. That's in charge of space. So you're estimates are much lower than what say air force secretary. Heather Wilson laid out earlier this year. She said space force would cost about thirteen billion dollars extra over five years. What accounts for that difference? What when the air force put out there estimate. It's actually the cost estimate for space force and a new combatant command for space United States space. Command included in that thirteen billion dollars is a billion dollars to build a new headquarters building for space command something that arguably is not needed, and it's not related to the space force at all. So the air force through in a lot of extra things that aren't actually related to the space force to get to that thirteen billion dollar numbers. So that's really the big difference. But as space Twitter was very quick to point out. There were some things that you left out as well. Like transition time new satellites new missions new uniform says people seem to be very happy to discuss. Yes. So you could build on the cost of new unify. Terms. I I will take that. I did not include that in terms of new satellites. Oh, will sure that's a different question though than creating space force. If you want to expand what we're doing in space. Absolutely. That will cost more. That is a separate question though. From how we organize within the military force base. How real is any of this? I mean, how likely are we to see space force in any capacity anytime soon, you know, I think it's a coin toss right now because you know, the president is adamant and pushing for this. But there have been some members of congress who well before the president got onto this issue. There is a bipartisan effort in the House Armed Services committee now that the house has flipped control the democratic leadership is sounding much more skeptical of this. And I think in part of that it's politics is this has become branded as Trump space force. So that's gonna make it harder for many Democrats to get behind it and supported even though they may have supported in the past Todd Harrison at. Center for strategic and international studies. His estimate is one of several out there for what a space force might cost. We'll only know for sure if congress gets on board, I'm Kimberly Adams, and that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

So the music it's always country, western if there's something on, you know, Lone Star is a lot of different ones. But and or the the soundtrack for Hamilton that has played for long three hour drives. So those are those are not infrequent answers campbellton and country music, whenever we have a country music mentioned. I do this thing where I say contemporary or not so contemporary, and for me, I'm not a very big contemporary country music fan. I'm not a huge old country music fan. But I do like Johnny cash do like Merle haggard. I do like George Jones. Yep. Do like a Hank Williams, Hank Williams junior. So where do you fall on that content? I'm probably more traditional, but I you know, I think the some of that he thinks some of the great lyrics country west or size one of my favorites. Thank god. For unanswered prayers. No doubt about that. Influential book in your life, different ones at different points. Or course, obviously the bible is one, but for for a blackberry winter that biography of Margaret Mead when I was in my twenties. It was it was a kind of a woman who had done really unconventional things west with the night by Merrill, Markham. She was a pilot who grew up in Africa in Kenya. With her dad just probably biography, sometimes say, those two book titles again, I wanna make sure my audience catches, those they both sound fascinating blackberry winter which is about Margaret me and west with the night by Beryl Markham fantastic. I always love the answers. We get about books and one day when this show becomes really big. We're going to have an entire anthology devoted to music, and literature and movies, but especially literature because we've gotten so many unbelievable books mentioned across the spectrum of our audience and those two we haven't heard before and they sound both fascinating. One of your all time, a one of your favorite or your all time favorite movie a lot of different movies. So so maybe ordinary people whose up probably pretty amazing heavy and then then motion. All his eyes. You know, the other one fun to one's a course. Apollo thirteen. Probably sure. And then I'm trying I'm blanking on the name. But it was one of the best movies in the last couple of years. The one about the women at Natia who were the a Hidden Figures Hidden Figures. Fantastic, great great story. True story. Great movie. Yup. Ordinary people is fascinating. That's a heavy movie. That is not fun to watch give our audience who doesn't who may not know some sense of what that movies kind of about. It's about the guilt of survivors. Yes. And the the things that it does to families and Mary Tyler Moore places an incredible character and anyone who remembers her from her television show completely different completely different and mesmerizing because of that. And so she is unable to cope with the fact that the son who survived was not the favourite son and her marriage dissolves after and so it's a it's an accident. That happens in the the favored son dies, and the younger son is dealing with his guilt of having survived. Right. And she can't deal with it. And fortunately, the father could deal with it and manages to find a way to move on. Yeah. It's a Nevada movie. It's a tough movie to watch. It is about deep emotional resonant issues, and Mary Tyler Moore is absolutely sensational that movie, but it is not one of those Larquie like, oh, you don't walk out, singing and a half. Now. It's kind of a dirt kind of funereal, and it's. Would be rolling. So let me take you out of politics out of your heavyweight job, which is air force secretary. And for our audience, describe a a great Saturday in New Mexico for you in New Mexico. We'd probably go we'd go hiking in the Hamer's or this time of year, you know, the they just finished balloon fiesta. So we would have gotten up early at like five in the morning.

"Thank you for being early adopters CBS enters you get to see it all in one five segment extravaganza. Aren't you lucky? Heather Wilson air force secretary is our special guest when you were in congress. She represented to Mexico, I district of New Mexico. I know where that is. But not everyone in my audience does tell it when we're the first district of New Mexico. It's Albuquerque in some of their ranching county outside of Albuquerque, kind of an ugly place, isn't it? It's gorgeous. I read seriously New Mexico's one of my favorite places in America. So is there Zona I grew up in San Diego. So the west is kind of my while it was my backyard in my youth that hasn't been for my professional career. But it doesn't make it any less beautiful than it always has been. It's just gorgeous you back on this job. Let you get back to New Mexico very often not enough. I like to be in the mountain west that's kind of my that's kind of where I feel most home. So we'll get. The three threshold questions we ask everyone. But I want to ask you a little bit about your life in politics. You were in the house that district was a hotly contested district. I don't need to tell you that lots of close races. You withstood two thousand six not very many, not all Republicans did then you try to run for the Senate didn't work out. What's the difference between a house in a Senate campaign, and do you have any regrets that though Senate campaigns did not work out for you? Well, the Senate Senate campaign is much more nationalized often and and less about local issues and because it's about geography within the state. It becomes you become a proxy for other national issues national owing in New Mexico. Probably not as different because there are only three congressional districts in New Mexico and some ways, you know, I I never liked to to lose an election. I'm but doors closed and windows open. I became a college president after after I ran unsuccessfully for the Senate. And it was the best job. I've ever had in my life being a college president absolutely love. At South Dakota school, the best engineering school. You've never heard of South Dakota school minds. I saw that on your biography. What what is what what's what's what's so good about that play? Well, ninety eight percent placement rate at an average starting salary above Harvard Yale Princeton average starting salary of over sixty three thousand dollars a year. So and out of state tuition at the time, I was there tuition room board fees, everything all in of about twenty one thousand the name sort of describes his, but let me understand what are the students study. They're all engineering and science so mechanical electrical, computer, science, biology chemistry physics, mathematics, metallurgical, engineering all engineers. There you go engineers at the future the attention to what she just said. All right. Adam secretary, I do love saying that we have three threshold questions in our takeout. Take a special the pretty good questions. How do I know that because our audience loves the answer? So that means they're decent questions and the answers are so much better. So in no particular order means whatever order you want one of the most the most. Financial book in your life. You're on a long flight or a long drive what kind of music artist or genre..

"Yeah. The the the hangars were badly damaged the buildings badly damaged hundred fifty five knot winds. I and and there's at some point there's things buildings just can't withstand. Fortunately, the aircraft were not as damaged as we originally feared we're gonna start to fly some of the remainder out of their craft that we're talking about we have we have twenty twos. There. We have something called an M YouTube, which is a twin engine airplane. We do training. We have t thirty eight we use for training. We have F16.'s and Q F sixteens which are drone F16.'s F16.'s. We use his targets. So so most of the aircraft were flown out the ones that were left behind were were in for maintenance. And the teams weren't able to get them fixed enough to fly out before they had to evacuate. You're gonna take a review of this. It's called after action report in your circles meeting the military circles. I wonder if what a one of the things to think about is in this era where storm seemed to either intensify or maybe move from something not threatening to threatening more rapidly is something that everyone in your world is going to have to think about in the future in any place at coastal any installation, that's coastal. I think that's part of it. And we're looking at how do we do weather forecasting and weather modeling near force has been doing a lot of work on atmosphere. Ick scientists since the nineteen twenties, and we do all of the weather forecasting for all of the services. The question is all right. Is there are there things that we need to improve the way that we predict whether the way we report whether and the way we do research on whether when which we do in collaboration with with Noah the national for atmospheric and oceanic administration. So we'll take a look at that. And then some of the decisions that are made on. All right. How do we do our maintenance and in we need to do it cyclically aircraft there that were completely stripped down for maintenance of their coatings? So you take all the panels. Off. And and should we schedule that differently right by definition on flyable? Right. Why is the thirty five as expensive as it is? And is it at its current price tag worth thirty five is a game changer, and it'd be Isreaeli the Israeli air chief was talking to Dave Goldfine our air chief just recently any he saw the Israelis have the f thirty five and he said to said something I thought was really insightful. He said, we're not integrating the f thirty five into the Israeli air force. We're integrating the Israeli air force into the f thirty five what are its capabilities that change games? It is a fusion machine. So it's a thing. It's almost a supercomputer surrounded by stealth aircraft. So it can pull in data from all over from space from air ground see cyber and it becomes a quarterback not just a platform. So it's it's ability to connect and share information so rapidly that the adversary can't react. And so it is really game changing aircraine, though, the the f thirty five a price point has come down pretty significantly. So it's now the per. Price of an F thirty five as is similar to its fourth generation aircraft. Come on that purchase prices..

"When you talk about operations help when you say twenty seven years helped my audience understand what that means in some mentioned, some things that they would be familiar with it upon you mentioned it when you talk about squadrons being operation, they are. They are forward in Afghanistan and in Iraq. In two thousand thirteen when they reduce the size of the service, and then in two thousand fourteen ISIS declared the caliph it in Iraq and Syria and the United States Air Force searched the fight which air force has always done. It's it's there's an attitude in the service of we got this. We can do this and lean forward and get the job done at the same time. The size of the force was coming down. And and at some point you have to say Washington doesn't got this. And we need to do the analysis that says what is really required not today. But looking forward to twenty twenty five twenty thirty what should the air force? What you the air force being the chief, and I were asked that testimony in March, and then and then the congress directed that. We do analysis that looks forward to twenty twenty five twenty thirty to say, what is the air force we need to implement the national new mention, keyword tempo. And mileage understand what that means tempo. Means deployments. Places of deployment one deployment is not the same as another true requirements are different surging requires people to stand up machinery to be rate to be ready and to be kept ready. That's maintenance, logistics. That's personnel. All of those things it is are required with each and every deployment. And when you have several going on at once, you're stressing the system helped my understand those stressors. Sure, let me give you an example. So as of two thousand sixteen we were four thousand maintainers short from what we needed so an aircraft breaks on the flight line. And you don't have somebody trained in there to be able to repair it. You may not have second shift maintenance, if you send a squadron forward into the Pacific into wall from Ellsworth air force base. They they may take because they're going forward. They take most of the maintainers with them, which means the jets that stay behind have even fewer maintain or so four thousand maintainers short as of today because of the increase in funding that we receive from. The congress and support from the president. We are only four hundred maintainers short. And by December this year, we will be back to even so so we will now they'll be very young. And then it's about training and seasoning knows maintainers to make sure that they they have the skills. They need to be craftsman at their work. I was sitting around a face the nation panel year ago when David Martin who you very well know national security court correspondent extraordinaire, CBS news mentioned an anecdote when you first became air force secretary and were briefed on readiness. And he said you looked at it said, well, this can't possibly be accurate at that. They had the columns were we can't be this ill prepared this ill fitted for our readiness mission. And you get the right now. And you should know that it's the right number exp-. Explain that level of surprise. And what you thought was when I was a young officer in Europe during the Cold War. We had to be ready for the at that time the Soviet Union to come. Across the full the gap at anytime. And so we had very high levels readiness. But we weren't taking parts of those units sending them halfway around the world to fight against violent extremism. And then bring them back and expect them to still be ready for for a conflict in Europe. So as we do now exactly so what happens is is units become less ready for all of their operations. And and that's really what's happened over time. So so job one for the air force is to restore the readiness valley of the force even things like munitions when we were fighting against ISIS, destroying their their declared caliph, it we were using hundred fifty or so precision munitions a day to destroy destroy ISIS. We were not buying munitions fast enough to replace those. We were using..

"Hugging. The cheeseburger combination. Please chips. Yeah. Madam secretary love saying that boiler saying that the you've got a special at soup and grilled cheese sandwich. Yeah. Excellent. Thank you. So let's talk about the space force. We've had a couple of guests on this program. A gym Breitenstein NASA administrator, Neil degrasse Tyson world renowned astrophysicist. That's probably a fascinating. I highly encourage you to go back and listen to it. That's that's forty five minutes of some of the most interesting accessible conversation about the universal ever. Enjoy gosh. So I'm gonna play for you sound bite from your boss secretary defense Jim Mattis. This is August thirteenth twenty eighteen topic space force Ellie. That's number one. Please I was not against at number space. But I was against rushing do that before we defined the problem. So we have had a wad of work to finding the problem do ten twenty years future Marta, we wanna be. All right. That's the Defense Secretary talking in general about the space force, Jim Brian Stein. The administrator Neil degrasse Tyson of said, there's an issue that has to be reckoned with space is a hostile place their interest in equities. The United States has involved in our daily lives GPS, all sorts of other things. And yet I wanna read something to you. I'm sure you're familiar with this October fourth this month foreign policy. I'll read the lead paragraph to you US President Donald Trump is peeved with air force secretary Heather Wilson over her handling of his directive to stand up a separate space force in the US military, and he's considering ousting her after the midterm elections. Three sources with knowledge of the matter told foreign policy, can you respond? Well, when when the White House denied it. My husband was very disappointed. Okay. Hoping hoping he'd get you back. A life back to normal normal life. Yeah. Yeah. No. Let me talk about where we are on the space force. First of all I am completely aligned with the president. And he set out a very bold vision we have to do. And here's why here's the problem that that that secretary Mattis talked about that we're trying to address United States built a glass house in an era before the existence of stones. In other words in space. We we are the best in the world at space. We are and our adversaries. No it, and they are seeking to develop the capability to deny the use of space in crisis or war. So think about what that means what we do in space today. There is not a military mission that isn't enabled in some way by space. We have seventy seven satellites about little less than half of them are GPS. So though, the blue dot on your phone is provided courtesy of about forty year minute tree air force base in Colorado. The the time. Timing signal for the new York Stock Exchange comes from those satellites we do communications, we do weather. We do command and control so connecting the president added states to his forces in the field all over the globe. And we do missile warning. So on CBS news when they show that arch of a missile launch from North Korea landed in that comes from the air force, we gather intelligence, we gather intelligence, take pictures, listen, so all of those are really important missions. Until probably the last decade, or so we were not really worried about what other countries might do to either jam or knocked down our satellites in two thousand seven the Chinese launched a missile and destroyed on orbit one of its dead weather satellite Tyson engine Breitenstein both act that on this very program. So so the world has changed and we need to develop the capability, and deploy it the ability to defend what we have on orbit and to prevail in space. So that adversaries won't see to deny us the use of space in in crisis or war. That's why that's the problem. We're trying to do you have any reason to believe the president is peeved with you know. No, I was with them on Friday. Right. Are you peeved with him? No. Okay. What what counts for this representation that there's some distance between you and the president on space force. I have no idea. I mean, this is a foreign policy article. I wouldn't I I I wouldn't put our people trying to undermine you. I have no idea. I mean, this is not a game that I play. I my job is to try to make sure that the president's intent is carried out and to do it exceptionally..

"And it was courts was that experience. Like, there could not have been very many other women cadets at the air force academy. When you were there were there, very many. I was in the third class to include women. So the the seniors still was an all male class. When I arrived and about ten down to ten and fifteen percent of class where women so I graduated with about there were maybe, you know, eight or nine hundred graduates in my class about eighty of us women, right? And how was that experience for you overall? It was it was a great experience from Yemen it open doors for me that I never even knew were there. I I was the first person in my family to go to college, which was a really big deal. And and it was full rights scholarship. And it also it it was it was a continuous exercise of mine. The fact that women were there at the shore. Sure, there were people who didn't think that women should be there at the time women still were not allowed to fly combat aircraft. There was still a law in place that prohibited that until nineteen Ninety-one. So so did you wanted you perceive that as an extra burden or something you're expecting going in? I didn't really no one ever told me that. I couldn't do it. You know? So I grew up around people that just assume that you know, you could do anything you'd be anything you wanted to be. And so I never really encountered people who didn't think that I could do something until I got the academy. And then then you kind of look at them and think real what's wrong with you, man. Course, I can do this. And you were a very successful cadet graduated with honors Rhode scholarship after that. Yeah. Oxford. Yeah. That was wonderful. So I spent three years at Oxford. I got master's PHD there. And and a very different experience from the academy. He kademi was like drinking from a fire hydrant the being at Oxford was more like being welcomed into treasurer them, but you can only take away what you can carry. So you have to choose carefully. Interesting fantastic metaphor. That's a really good way of thinking about it. What did you take away? I took away. I spent a lot of time reading is the best library in the world at the time, the Bodley library at Oxford, and I spent hours and hours. So you went cross discipline. You branched out? I'm Jackie I studied more deeply international relations and international law. So the history of twentieth century, really and. The teaching of international relations is different in Europe. And in the United States in the United States. We think that politics is a science the in the UK, they don't pretend that we tell ourselves. So it's more of the study of history and law. And the norms of behavior among states, and then came to work for the well, I'll just jump to the national Security Council for President George Herbert Walker Bush. I did I serve as an air force officer in Europe during the Cold War after I finished at Oxford and had a great time doing that. And then and then left active duty, and and was going to go to law school was narrowly saved. I didn't go didn't end up going. Lawyers will appreciate well. I married a lawyer. So despite that, he's a nice guy. Burdens, and then then came to to work for the first President Bush Telerate's a little bit about what the national Security Council. Does what your role within? It was an interesting time to be on the national Security Council staff, of course, it was post Ron contras. So the staff was quite small, right?
