march 5, 2008 update: here is a cached link to Joe Mangan’s old web page:
There is a new french documentary on whisteblowers that has an interview with Joe Mangan in it. See the comments for more information.
Does anyone know how to reach Joe? I have tried everything and have been unable to make contact.
I was looking up a friend that I have somehow lost contact with. I knew Joe in Kansas City because we went to church together. We also went to air shows and talked about air planes, God, and software development. Joe lived a very adventurous life. The last time I talked to him, he told me how he almost died on the top of Long’s Peak in the Rocky Mountains during a thunderstorm. His encouragement and mentoring is one of the main reasons that I moved from Kansas City to Pennsylvania to work as a computer programmer at my current job, ten years ago. Well, now it sounds like he is in trouble for whistle blowing on the safety of a component on the Airbus A380 jetliner:
Here is a wikipedia article about him:
I tried to email him, but his mail folder was overflowing and most of the information I could find on the web is over a year old! I am hoping to make contact with him and find out what is going on now.
