This is beyond gamesmanship between mechanics and management.

This plane was revving on takeoff when fault warning triggered.

The article is poorly articulating what really happened but this guy plugged a pitot tube which measures airspeed and altitude and send the data to the air data module or flight control computer.

It is horrible, but we are not going to go into the issue of the person's name.. Glad he is being charged.

It's time for AA to settle with the mechanics union.

One article indicates it was going to Nassau.

"Flight 2834 from Miami to Nassau in the Bahamas on July 17 "

He said he did not intend to harm plane or passengers. A blocked pilot tube is what caused the crash of AF 447. Pretty bad for a guy to throw away his 31 year career like that and put lives in danger.

Yes I was referring to the Hurricane.
I saw it on the news today.
Didn't realize it was old news.

Lo and behold, prosecutors shared in Federal court today that the suspect had videos on his phone about causing mass killings, ISIS support propaganda and had also told some co-workers that his brother is a member of ISIS.


Be careful of the toes you step on today for they may be connected to the foot of the person's a$s you have to kiss tomorrow.
