The Burnelli Web Site
Evidence of Suppression and Official denial is overwhelming


Boeing Correspondence
Aloha Airlines looses roof during flight "I do not believe that enough attention has been paid to accident avoidance during the detailed design phase of modern day aircraft development. The engineering departments of the manufacturers do not have separate, identifiable staff groups dedicated solely to a continuous audit and review of each step of the design process to insure that each and every design decision takes accident avoidance and survivability into full consideration. I believe that many accidents that have occurred during the past few years would never had happened had such surveillance been exercised."


"I recently sent a clipping that I saw in Aviation Week to Pete Gifford, which, in effect, vindicated the Burnelli design by virtue of its present day look alikes such as the F-117, the B-2 , and the ill fated A-12 which has just been cancelled. .... One of these days the Burnelli design will be recognized for its inherent merits and perhaps be awarded some monetary recompensation as well. Let's hope so."

[We applaud Mr. Luplow for his honesty and integrity, both of which seem to be in such short supply today at Boeing management level.]


  • The symbiotic relationship between the Smithsonian and the Boeing Company and their refusal to admit to the validity of Burnelli's Principle of design and have in fact eliminated Burnelli from America's aeronautical heritage.

Boeing 737 lands short of runway, breaks in three parts demonstrating weakness of fuselage. After years of being ignored by the Smithsonian with regard to Mr. Burnelli's exclusion from the Smithsonian Book of Flight, the Larson behavior (see above) caused Mr. Goodlin to appeal (November 22, 1994) to a member of the Smithsonian's Board of Regents, Mr. Frank Shrontz, Chairman of the Boeing Company. Instead of receiving an answer from the Smithsonian Regent, Mr. Frank Shrontz, Mr. Goodlin was surprised to receive the response, from Boeing's Vice President of Technology and Engineering, Robert A. Davis dated December 21, 1994. Mr. Davis's letter was a masterpiece of distortion which had no relevance to the Smithsonian's obligation to uphold America's aeronautical heritage and Mr. Burnelli's rightful place in it. The Davis letter was refuted by Mr. Goodlin January 12, 1995. But there can be no doubt that the Davis letter showed not only the bad faith in which the Boeing Company acts (especially in view of the above) and points to the fact that a symbiotic relationship between Boeing (industry) and the Smithsonian (Government) exists, a serious detriment to American taxpayers and the travelling public in general.
