Flight 447, Air France update…

Posted by Janice | Permalink | 2 Comments Add a comment

Air France pilots are pressing crash investigators for past performance problems of its aircrafts’ speed sensors (pitot tubes). The tube’s failure purportedly was key in last month’s deadly crash of Flight 447 which claimed the lives of all 228 who were aboard. As of now, no information has been revealed.

Union officials are stating that modifications to existing aircraft could’ve been made had this information been available. Extensive searches for flight data and cockpit voice recorders have thus far proven fruitless. We originally reported on this story on June 9th in the article “Air France: Unsensored!”

    We need transparency of all records of public aircraft. Would you buy a seat on a plane if you knew of maintenance or repair questions?
    This information should be made totally instantly available to anyone who asks.
    Capitalism has a tenet of “caveat emptor” which cannot work if questions cannot be asked.

    As a aircraft worker myself..i am surprised that the modifications on the speed sensors were not incorporated
    right away…the fact that air france maintence supervisors ignored the FAA
    recomendations is in itself….criminal…and appropriate charges should follow
