He declined to say what caused the problems. But he hailed the f-117a program As a successful venture that demonstrates the Pentagon can develop and build reliable High tech aircraft in a classified environment. I think it s persuaded us that full scale development program can be used very successfully he Ter he said perhaps it would be Hoove us to get some tests run to assure us and the Duncan said the 0.01 mgl level should be put in perspective. That level is the lowest Trace the lab tests can detect and there is room there for error he said. In addition Federal research shows that a person can ingest More chromium by using stainless steel cookware to prepare food than by drinking water daily that has a 0.05 mg/1 chromium level he said.
