Ah yes... I remember a friend describing a major issue with a 980MW GE power turbine, which might have had said extremely expensive turbine going explosively TITSUP.

So they called in the designer of said turbine to take a look, that being my friend.

Who was denied access to said turbine, being female.

GE said "sure, she doesn't need access. we also won't need to reimburse you for downtime, nor will we charge warranty parts rates... that'll be full rate for those parts, boys! and no, she will not be wearing a burkha or any other garment that impedes safe access to the turbine..."
