Re: Mx Outsourcing

I also recall an accident with a brand new A340 where the ground crew was doing full power engine checks and it ran up a blast fence, broke in half and injured some on board.

One of the engines ran for almost one hour as I remember.

Total loss of aircraft as far as I know.

As to outsource stuff, when I retired from NWA in 1996 we had almost 5,000 FAA certified mechanics working for Northwest. Today we have less than 1,000.

Dux
