Two Oklahoma Men Convicted for Records Falsification in Connection With Improper Aircraft Engine Overhauls
On December 20, 2006, Allen D. Good and Robert E. Parker were found guilty following a 3-day jury trial in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, of charges of misrepresenting maintenance done on aircraft engines. Parker, of Yukon, Oklahoma, was convicted of one count of conspiracy, three counts of false statements in connection with conducting improper overhauls on aircraft engines, and one count of mail fraud. Good, of Moore, Oklahoma, was convicted of one count of conspiracy and three counts of false statements in connection with conducting improper overhauls on aircraft engines. A third person, Larry Good (father of Allen Good), pleaded guilty to a charge of misprison of a felony prior to the start of the trial.
The Goods, both aircraft mechanics, conspired with Parker, a self-employed aircraft parts broker, to falsify entries in aircraft logbooks regarding an aircraft engine. The logbook entries indicated that engines had been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected in accordance with applicable overhaul manuals when, in fact, the engines contained parts that were marked "not airworthy." The mail fraud charge stems from a payment sent via mail to the men by the engine's owner. No sentencing dates have been set. This case was investigated with the FBI, FAA, the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the Criminal Investigations Division of the Internal Revenue Service.
