FAA uncovers evidence of maintenance failure, not fat people

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...atoday/5224552

Quote:
When an Air Midwest commuter plane crashed after takeoff in Charlotte last January, killing all 21 aboard, authorities initially suspected the plane was overweight. But last month, evidence at a National Transportation Safety Board (news - web sites) hearing also showed the pilots couldn't level the plane because a control had been improperly adjusted.

The faulty repairs were done by a mechanic trainee provided through two outside contractors handling maintenance. The trainee and his supervisor skipped 12 steps laid out in the maintenance manual for work on the elevator controls that failed, according to NTSB (news - web sites) records.
