B737 Slat Stop UPDATE

Asahi Shimbun reports that several other aircraft have been found with similar defects as what likely caused the China airlines barbecue we discussed here.

Apparently, if you do not install the washer under the nut, there's nothing to keep the bolt from sliding out and punching a hole in the slat track can.

And what did you say the inspectors whose job it is to sign off on installations like this were doing?
