Delivering Military Aircraft Containing Russian Titanium (Berry Amendment Violation)

Boeing and the U.S. government reached a settlement over claims Boeing delivered military aircraft containing parts made of Russian-melted titanium rather than U.S. product, in violation of the Berry Amendment, 10 U.S.C. § 2533(a), which provides that a contractor may not purchase foreign titanium with appropriated funds. In addition, Boeing agreed to deliver without charge aircraft parts worth more than $1.4 million. The case was settled with the Department of Justice under the False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. § 3729-3733.
