Police Seize Airplane Parts in Rome

Police Seize Airplane Parts in Rome

Quote:
Police seized parts cannibalized from six Airbus A300 jets in a warehouse at Rome's main airport Saturday as investigators probed an international market in used airline parts suspected of being falsely certified as new or as properly inspected.

Milan daily Corriere della Sera said FBI agents were studying Italian investigators' work in the case for ties to the crash in November of an American Airlines A300 in New York City which killed 265 people.

More than 70 U.S. pilots have signed a statement saying Airbus A300 jets should be grounded until the cause of the crash is know. The pilots claim there is no way to adequately inspect the Airbus tails, which are made of a nonmetallic composite material. There are no procedures for using ultrasound or another method to look inside the composite.
