Delta #EpicPoleFail : Tuesday’s problem at Waldronville

CD’s Latest from Delta

Today’s Pole Replacement Failure Debacle :

The following is not a promising portent for the pole programme; Delta/Aurora replaced 5-6 poles at Waldronville very recently, like a couple of weeks ago…. The infamous algorithm said everything was hunky-dory. However real humans got in the way, and now, the freshly installed NEW poles ….have red and blue tags (Blue = structural defect). The poles were not installed correctly. Apparently the poles were installed near a ditch, possibly by an inexperienced new subcontract crew, or perhaps without a proper set of installation instructions because there are now no longer enough engineers and experienced staff at Delta/Aurora to function properly.   

Godfrey and the Gyroscope, we look forward to your fake takes on this episode.
